TamoSoft Throughput Test – Measuring Wireless or Wired LAN Bandwidth

TamoSoft Throughput Test – Measuring Wireless or Wired LAN Bandwidth

TamoSoft Throughput Test is a utility for testing the performance of wireless (Wi-Fi) or wired networks. This utility is free software from TamoSoft that can calculate important metrics, such as upstream and downstream throughput values, packet loss, and round trip time, and display the results in numeric and graphic formats. The TamoSoft Throughput Test works on TCP data streams and supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connections and allows users to evaluate network performance depending on Quality of Service (QoS) settings. To perform throughput tests, the application uses two components: the server and the client. After the connection is established, the client and server send data in both directions, and the client part of the application calculates and displays network metrics. To start throughput testing, you need to launch the client and server on different machines. In the client window, enter the IPv4 or IPv6 address of the server and the Client will attempt to connect to the server, and if the connection is successful, continuous throughput testing will begin. System requirements 1 GB RAM.5 MB of free disk space. Supported Operating Systems Microsoft Windows: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2.Mac OS X: Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite (10.10), El Capitan (10.11), Sierra (10.12).Android (client only): Android 4.1 and later.iOS (client only): iOS 8.0 and later.

Windows Server Core 2019 – Step-by-Step Installation and Configuration

Windows Server Core 2019 – Step-by-Step Installation and Configuration

Windows Server Core is a minimalist version of Microsoft Windows Server. The major difference between Server Core with other versions is the absence of a desktop display and all configuration and maintenance are carried out using a command-line interface. Server Core has been introduced since the 2008 generation of Windows Server. The Server to function properly does not need a graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI of the server only serves for ease in performing configuration and maintenance. Without a GUI, Windows Server Core has the advantage of using resources such as disks and smaller memory, so that these resources can be maximized for services. And in terms of security, Server Core is much safer from surface attacks against the operating system. Installing Windows Server Core In this tutorial, Bardimin uses Windows Server 2019 as an example. For the installation of other versions, it is almost the same. You just have to adjust. Download the Windows Server 2019 ISO file.Burn the ISO file to a DVD-ROM or create a bootable USB Flash Drive with Rufus.Boot the PC from a CD or USB Flash drive.Next on the option to select an operating system, select "Windows Server 2019 Standard Core". Click the Next button to proceed with the installation. Then agree to the terms of the license.Next on the installation type, select "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)". This option means that you will do a clean install.Select the Windows Server installation drive you want. You can...

AutoIt v3 – Automation Windows GUI and scripts

AutoIt v3 is a freeware for automating the Windows graphical user interface and common scripting. This utility is a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movements, and window manipulations, controls to automate tasks in a way that other languages do not do (e.g. VBScript and Send Keys). AutoIt has been as small as possible and stand-alone with no external .dll files or registry entries required so that it is safe to use on the Server. Scripts can be compiled into stand-alone executables with Aut2Exe. The AutoIt utility was originally designed to automate and configure thousands of PCs in a "launch" situation. It has evolved into a powerful language that allows complex expressions, user functions, loops, and everything else that experienced scripters would expect.

File Sharing between Hyper-V Host and Guest

File Sharing between Hyper-V Host and Guest

You can share files between hosts and guests on Hyper-V in the following ways. Hyper-V is a Microsoft hardware virtualization that allows you to create and run software versions of computers, called virtual machines. Each virtual machine acts like a full-fledged computer, running the operating system and programs. How to create a Virtual Machine (VM) on Hyper-V you can see in another Bardimin article, Creating a Virtual Machine In Windows 10 Without Applications. In this article, Bardimin will discuss some ways to share files you might do between Host and Guest on Hyper-V. Sharing devices and local resources between Host and Guest on Hyper-V Open Hyper-V Manager and click "Hyper-V Settings". Make sure "Enhanced Session Mode Policy" on the Server and "Enhanced Session Mode" on the User have been activated. If your Hyper-V host is running Windows 11, Windows 10, or Windows 8.1, Enhanced Session Mode is enabled by default. But if running Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2012 R2, do this first. Enable the "Hyper-V Guest Service Interface". You can activate it by right-clicking on the Virtual Machine and selecting "Settings". Then on "Integration Services", check "Guest service". The Hyper-V Guest Service Interface provides a Hyper-V host interface for copying files to or from a virtual machine. Then run the Virtual Machine that you have created.Next click "Show Options" on the pop-up window. And then select the "Local Resources" tab and click the "More" button. Next, in...
