Disable Vuze from showing up in Mobile Devices

with 2 comments


One of my colleague called and told me that he has something with my name showing up on his “My computer/ Computer”. The moment I saw, I was shocked. First things first, google brought me,, no avail.


When you have vuze installed, it might show up in your Network or Computer as Vuze on <<computername>> under Media Devices. Who needs it? btw, when you are using a torrent client on a intranet, and you don’t want people to know that you are using a torrent client, guess what Vuze shows shows up on other computers on the network, with your PC name.




Here’s how you disable it. In the Vuze menu at top, Tools –> Options –> Plugins –> uncheck azupnpav plugin. Hit save (I don’t know if hitting save is required). Restart Vuze.

Get windows domain name from the command line

leave a comment »

Past couple of days, I have been hunting for the command that would give the domain that my computer is joined to. I have always been hitting the same page, and I am writing it here to no forget it.

Fyi, this command gives you the name of the domain that your computer is current joined to. That is, if you view the System Properties (sysdm.cpl), the Domain: value you see in there, that’s what this command gives you.

systeminfo | findstr /B /C:"Domain"

Installing gedit on kali linux

with 6 comments


yeah, it’s really a bummer when you try to edit a file with your (our) favorite text editor gedit, and you get “command not found”. You may be better off using gvim or leafpad but when it comes to breaking the habit of using gedit, you would have a second thought of installing gedit by hook or crook. Just as in backtrack, Off you go, and try

apt-get install gedit


you get Unable to locate package gedit


You may be wondering if your sources.list should be updated. That is the answer. Update the /etc/apt/sources.list first based on your need with the list of repositories from here. [Or directly try apt-get update from the terminal and then install gedit with apt-get install gedit]

Or for a minimum configuration of repository list, in the terminal run

leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list

replace (or make sure) the contents of sources.list is as below

deb kali main contrib non-free 
deb kali/updates main contrib non-free 
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 Kali - Official Snapshot i386 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130905327-07:57]/ kali contrib main non-free 

Save the changes to the sources.list and run apt-get update to update the package repositories.

apt-get update 


That’s it, once the apt-get repository is updates, you can run

apt-get install gedit

and then

gedit /etc/hosts


leafpad /etc/hosts Winking smile
