Using PSEXEC

I don’t use this very often, but it has come in very handy lately when working in the environment that I have been working in. So here is an example of how I use psexec

Go to the file or folder where psexec is installed. I have installed it in my system32 folder.

cd c:\Windows\system32

The prompt will show up like this

C:\Windows\system32>

type in the psexec command

C:\Windows\system32>psexec \\<name of computer or IP address> <program>

psexec \\<ipaddress> cmd

The command above will bring you to the command line utility of the windows computer. One really fun command is the msg command. It lets you send a message to another computer.

psexec <\\computer name or ip address> msg * <Message>
