Very inspiring! thanks for the all beautiful tips.
One little attention, I have always used arping/arpscan (based on hwd address resoultion) in complicated LANs, in order to verify the presence of specific machines. Most of the time the firewalls might be configured to only accept some specific ICMP packets.
Another subtle thing, I find it to some extent easier to use wts (windows terminal service) if executing remote commands on windows machines is being involved. samba isn't that easy to configure on most of unix flavors (at least for me). rdesktop comes to fulfil this need. Here is a simple trick emphasising it: rdesktop host_machine -u catonmat -p meow -s "cmd.exe /C command"
