Manage Network Devices

With NetCmdlets and Windows PowerShell, admins can easily script common network management tasks including router configuration, switch port monitoring, directory access, VLAN administration, remote execution, and more!
Control Routers, Switches, and Other Devices via SNMP
The easy-to-use get-snmp and set-snmp Cmdlets make working with SNMP capable devices straightforward and intuitive. Administrators can easily automate and script processes for monitoring bandwidth, throughput, up-time, or any number of other network management capabilities.
Manage Linux, MacOS, and Unix from Windows
NetCmdlets gives administrators the ability to connect PowerShell scripts to remote Linux/Unix/MacOS systems, and execute commands remotely using standard networking protocols like SSH, Rexec, RShell, Telnet, and more! Through straightforward and easy-to-use cmdlets it is possible to securely automate and orchestrate remote systems from Windows.
For secure shell connections, NetCmdlets provides the Invoke-SSH cmdlet. Below is an example of connecting to a remote SSH server to execute the “ls” command.
Invoke-Rexec and Invoke-Rshell
Rexec and Rshell (rsh.exe) already exist as command line applications, but until
now they did not return useful, easily scriptable objects in PowerShell.
The Invoke-Telnet cmdlet may be used to execute a command via a telnet session. The cmdlet will connect, authenticate, wait for the specified Shell prompt to be returned by the server, and then execute the command.
