To the best of my knowledge, there is no such command.

Yet there are many different network and local servers and services listed as active in task mgr

I'm not sure what you mean by the above statement. I think instead of ""local servers and services" you must mean just "services" alone. Typically, a "server" is a computer that provides "services" such as DHCP, NAT, email etc. Or, are you referring to the list of processes running on the "processes" tab of Task Manager?

If you're talking about the "processes" tab in Task Manager then those are just services and applications running on your local computer. Most you want to just leave alone as they are necessary for proper running of your computer.

You can google each and every one of them to see where it comes from and what it does if you're concerned about them.

Thanks for the lessons..there is so much to know and learn for someone who isn,t satisfied with just knowing how to use the keyboard. I have several lifetimes of how and why when it comes to understanding the computer and all its abilities. I sincerely appreciate your helpful suggestions and the kind manner used in presenting my misconceptions.
Best wishes!!

My pleasure, I'm always glad to help.

Just remember, google is your friend and you can find a lot of answers on your own by just looking.

If I had a dollar for every minute I've spent researching stuff online........I'd be filthy rich by now.........LOL.

For instance, had you searched something like "what is task manager" (do google that just for fun) you would have found a lot of information explaining what it is, and what it does and probably could have figured out everything you wanted to know on your own. Personally, I've always found when I have to work things out myself, the answers stick with me far longer and better than if someone shows me or tells me.

"what is DOS command to list all servers related to network@

well actually none at all in Windows 7 as it has no DOS, though it does have NT Command Prompt CMD.EXE:

ARM Devices the future. Windows have accepted the fact!

You can use the following command to list all systems in the workgroup.

net view

Or if you're in a domain:

net view /domain:domain_name
