Summary: Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, shares a video he made that illustrates parsing NetStat with Windows PowerShell 5.0.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. For someone who loves working at the command line, the new ConvertFrom-String cmdlet is awesome. I mean, I can do things in a single line of code that in the past, took 15 or 20 lines of code. This means less scripting and more production work.
Today, I am presenting a video to illustrate parsing the output of the NetStat command via Windows PowerShell, but this is simply the surface of how powerful this technique is.
Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player: Parse NetStat info with PowerShell 5 by Ed Wilson).
Note For more information about the technique of converting output from NetStat into an object and parsing it with Windows PowerShell, see Parsing NetStat Information with PowerShell 5.
