Welcome to Geoff Hayward's Weblog

Commenting on Java, JavaFX, Java EE, Joomla, and IoT.

You can download files with PowerShell using Start-Bitstransfer.

$credential = Get-Credential
Start-BitsTransfer -Source -Destination .\amazing-application-1.0.0.exe  -Credential $credential -Authentication basic

You can leave out authentication if the web server does not require credentials.

I hope this helps


If you do not wish to enable TelNet just to test ports on a remote machine then PowerShell has a solution. PowerShell comes with Test-NetConnection, which gives detailed information about a connection.

Example of using Test-NetConnection

Test-NetConnection -Port 443 -InformationLevel "Detailed" 

I hope this helps.
