FYI: some of these commands (and a few others) are discussed in Chapter 1 of our textbook here. Additional information about some of these may be found in the virtual InfoSec learning labs you've been doing.


Looking back, I realized that some of these definitions in your answer aren't all that clear/accurate. e.g. I don't think you have the right distinction between ipconfig and ipconfig /all, and your definition of nslookup doesn't seem clear...
