Net Send Change name sender?!

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Thnx for looking in to this. Underneath is the script from CyberSlug (who i want to give credit for it's script). I added it al little but ran into the following problem. When receiving a message i only see the computername were it came from, but i want to see the username. (in cmd if i do "net name" it gives the computername and the username who is logged on) i tried to build in something like net name "computername" /delete so only the username would be left to display but this doesn't work. any idea's?

If you can get the IP-adress (Parse ping output?) you can use nbtstat with the -A parameter. Although this is not a 100% safe to get an username, and you will always have several candidates.

hmmm, doesn't seem to work. When in cmd you automaticly get to the C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop> folder. Is this info stored somerwere? or is it possible to retrieve the user name from here?

$domainfile = "c:\domain.txt"

$openuser = FileOpen($userfile,0)

$opendomain = FileOpen($domainfile,0)

$userline = FileRead($openuser)

$domainline = FileRead($opendomain)

MsgBox (0, "Logged in user details", "Domain = " & $domainline & " Username = " & $userline)

Oke, got a way to get the username. Now is there a way to add this in the script so the receiver of the message gets the username instead of the computername???

Manadar, you were right afterall but still need some help.

runwait("cmd /c nbtstat -A PC-4F2PB1J > c:\ipretrieve.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

$userip = "c:\ipretrieve.txt"

$openip = FileOpen($userip,0)

Now i need the IP which is between the [xxx.xxx.xxx.xx] is there a way to get this info out of the .txt file?

then i need to do runwait("cmd /cnbtstat -A xxx.xxx.xxx.xx > c:\username.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

this gives mee a list. I need the last name in the list which is always 6 char. long

any idea??

Oke, i found out ho to change the PC-name to an ip adres:

$ipretrieve = TCPNameToIP($sender2)

msgbox (262192,'IP??', $ipretrieve)

runwait("cmd /c nbtstat -A "&$ipretrieve&" > c:\nameretrieve.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

$userip = "c:\nameretrieve.txt"

$openip = FileOpen($userip,0)

The only thing i need help for is how to get the username from the .txt file???[/color]

The username is always 6 characters long and is last in the list.

Thnx for looking in to this!!

Thnx, didn't work on my machine either. I made the script look for the user while comparing to a user list. That worked out great.
