The Technical How To papers have been written and presented by AngelTech.US Professionals at work and conferences.


  1. Run any application under less privilege user (create a new user and call it noright with just user/guess right on your computer first) will help to enhance your Windows computer security greatly. You can create a shortcut to an application that you want to run under this less privilege user then modify its Properties  using the following line in the Target box (in 1 line) %windir%\system32\runas.exe /savecred /user:computer-name\noright "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" and %windir% in the Start in box
  2. When configure NAT for Windows 2003 server, if you have 2 network card (one internal and one external), you may want to assign 1 to the external NIC Interface metric (under Advance TCP/IP Settings) and 2 to the internal NIC Interface metric. Otherwise, your Internet connection may not work properly.
  3. To get a MAC address of a remote computer, ping its IP address and then run arp command to see the MAC address associate with the IP that you just ping
  4. Use Google advance search operator to find exatly what you want
  5. If you want to copy Putty configuration from a Windows computer to another same version Windows computer, here is what to do:
    1. On a model computer, configure Putty to your desire, save and test it to make sure it works the way you want it to.
    2. Start/Run/regedit to run regedit tool
    3. Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys
    4. Delete all values under this key EXCEPT the (Default) value
    5. Right click on HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham and select Export, then save it as "setup-putty.reg" to a location that you want
    6. Copy setup-putty.reg and the Putty.exe files to a machine that you want to copy Putty configuration to
    7. On this new computer, double click on setup-putty.reg to import Putty configuration
