Just a little example, not too little, to get me started please.

How do you get to NT system setups via perl scripts.  For example,
I need to set up the peer services and tcp and would like to run
a script to do it.   AND, aside,  is it possible to run a perl distribution off
a floppy?  If not, I can make a CDROM.

I'll head over to activeware and poke around but would still like an
example.  Thanks.

If you can do it from the command line, you can do it with perl.


 Directory of A:\

CW3230MT DLL       319,488  08-10-97 11:11a cw3230mt.dll
PERL     DLL       561,152  08-10-97 11:11a perl.dll
PERL     EXE         8,192  08-10-97 11:11a perl.exe
         3 file(s)        888,832 bytes
         0 dir(s)         568,832 bytes free

Here is a simple example of using ARP:-



`arp -s 200.20.180.144 23-45-67-9a-bc-de`;
@Arps = `arp -a`;
$HostNumber = 1;
foreach $Line (@Arps) {
   if( $Line =~ /^\s*[0-9]+\.[0-9]+/) {
      $HostHash{$HostNumber} = $Line;
      print "$HostNumber. $Line";
      $HostNumber++;
   } else {
      print "  $Line";
   }
}
print "Which host would you like to delete?   ";
chomp($ToDelete = <>);
if (defined($HostHash{$ToDelete})) {
   @Words = split ' ', $HostHash{$ToDelete};
   print "Going to do arp -d $Words[0]\n";
   `arp -d $Words[0]`;
   print "\nResult:-\n";
   print `arp -a`;
}

Although not as powerfull, you can do quite a number of things with vbscript and the footprint is a bit lighter.

Follow this link:

http://cwashington.netreach.net/main_site/default.asp?topic=news

for a good site on vbscript.

If you want to use Perl install the ActiveState distribution www.activestate.com and

look at the Win32 options, in particular:

Win32::NetAdmin
Win32::NetResource

Hope that helps.
