Network Command utility

Top  Previous  Next

This is an independent utility mimicking the work of the action Send Command. Now to run a task remotely with the trigger Listener, you need only copy and use this utility on the other computer. The utility is autonomous (portable) and does not need any special installations.

The utility has two modes of work:

Interactive
From the command line

 

Interactive parameters

If run the utility without any parameters, the dialog window of parameters will load.

NetCommandUtil

 

Host Name or IP Address

Specify the Host Name or IP address of the computer where you need to send the command. The Host Name can be either similar to www.mydomain.com for the Internet or just the name of the necessary computer for the local area network.

 

Port

Specify the port the command should be sent to. By default, the "Listener" listens to port 5254. The port number can be changed to any other number (see Plugin settings).
