AutoExit on TekZilla

October 19, 2009

Well, I do have to admit that I’m creating a bit of a copycat post here… 😉
Today I was reading through the blogs and found this post from Sam Wood.
So I went to watch the video, only to see that AutoExit was also featured on it! 🙂

AutoExit can be seen at 15:37 & 15:44 over here.
I’ve never heared of Tekzilla.com before but it looks like a very nice site. (Thanks for the tip Sam ;-))

AutoExit 2009 Release Candidate

October 14, 2009

2 months ago Beta-1 of AutoExit was released.
Thanks for all the great feedback you guys sent me!

In the meantime, time didn’t stand still and I worked on the last main feature that was planned for the 2009 version: making it multilingual.
The Release Candidate now fully supports: French, German & Japanese! 🙂

I have to give a special thanks to these people for helping with the translations, it couldn’t have been done without them:
Yoshihiro Okabe (WHS MVP): http://hatono-tani.spaces.live.com (Japanese)
Sébastien (French WHS Site): http://blog.monhomeserver.fr (French)
Christian Baumann: http://blog.chriss-baumann.de/ (German)

Let me know if you find spelling mistakes so that they can be fixed by the final version.

I still haven’t found any translator for Spanish, mail me if you are interested in helping out!

Undocumented WHS Classes: NetworkUtils

October 8, 2009

Another small class, in the series of undocumented API’s in Windows Home Server.

This new article describes the undocumented functions in the NetworkUtils class which is located in WHSCommon.dll.
This class contains 2 handy functions to get IP/Mac address of the server & the IP of the router.

void GetRouterIPAndServerMAC(out string ip, out string mac)
Get the IP address of the router and mac address of the server.

Sample code
string ip, mac;
NetworkUtils.GetRouterIPAndServerMAC(out ip, out mac);

Sample output
IP: 172.19.3.1
MAC:00-19-DB-7B-6D-35

string GetServerIP()
Get the IP address of the server.
Sample code
string serverIp = NetworkUtils.GetServerIP();

Sample output
IP: 172.19.3.10

So as you see, two very easy to use functions, that a very handy!
