Better Networking, More Net Gains: How Windows Server 2012 Can Be Your Director of Protocol(s)
Whether on the wire or across the airwaves, you'll find a lot to like in how Windows Server 2012 helps you shuffle the bits around.

But that's not all. IP networking's now covered from a command-line perspective, as is just about everything networking-related, with a pile of new PowerShell commands. In fact, you can glue together about seven of the new PowerShell commands and get a new-and-improved IPCONFIG, as you'll see in this session. Find out what REALLY works in this clear examination of Windows 8 networking.
