How to Browse Website Using Command Prompt


4. When you successfully connected, you will see a blank window, it's not an error because typically this protocol is used to establish a connection to TCP port 23, but now we use it to connect to port 80. I will try to view the index.html inside the local wwwroot.

Just type in the blank window, even you can't see it. You can write it down in notepad or other text editor and then paste it to the cmd window.

Press enter two times to show the result.

If you see the result while we do browse the internet using command prompt in step 4, all HTML tags was shown there which makes the result a little hard to read. The attacker have his own web server and he already make a little script to detect the victim computer : what IP address, which ISP they use, from which country and city.

    I love how people come on here, expect free information to be spoon-fed to them, and then complain that it’s not up to their liking. This person does a great job distributing helpful information for beginners and as usual people take it for granted. If you don’t like the tutorials, than don’t read them.

    To anyone educated in this field, the significance of this tutorial should be rather obvious. If not, I suggest you read elsewhere and do your homework before talking badly. Even knowing this beforehand, it’s still nice to see someone taking the time to teach beginners who have an interest in the field. It’s a shame that they take advantage of it and due to their own lack of capabilities, also complain and insult.
