comment ping alternative for tcp?
Yuck... Did not know that. That scuppers it on HP hardware - the HP interface teaming software appears to use some winpcap libraries. - I found this out when attempting to install wireshark.

comment What is the simplest and fastest way to transfer large file through a Windows network?
I feel some performance tests coming on... I will see if I can find the time to compare nfs,cifs,ftp and nc on my local home network.

Thanks, It is interesting to see the difference in strategies. It is kind of strange, I am more familiar with working with the file system, as your script does, but the first script has given me a insight into the potential of WMI which frankly I was unaware of. Thanks again. It is good to see that not only is there more than one way to achieve my goal but also that I can treat the windows print spool as just a bunch of files. I take it that the print spooler locks all files in the spool directory - hence why you stop the service. That is potentialy a lot of file handles...

ok, i get it. will try it in the morning. I like the way time is handled no need to count in seconds. addDays(-1) is pretty funny though ;) thanks again. Mat.

Brilliant. Am I right in thinking that the printjob object will also have control functions, something like: $objItem.DeleteJob? I will just have to look at how time is handled. Thanks, I would mark you up, but not enough points yet...
