After some furious posting regarding tools and programs for the DAW operator, I will now turn my attention towards useful commands and functions of the operating system.
ipconfig /flushdns (flushes the DNS cache and causes new DNS/IP bindings to be downloaded)
arp - d (deletes MAC/IP bindings on the local network)
netsh winsock reset (Resets the Windows Sockets layer if undiagnosable network problems occur)
The above commands may need to be run from a command prompt with Administrator privileges but be careful not to use the last command too often or you may find you will need to reinstall your IP layer in Windows.
