Yes you use the NET and NETSH commands, amongst others, once in the interface.

Yes.

You can try "nslookup www.scienceforums.net" and it'll give you the I.P. Adress of the site.

From there, it's literally a matter of port testing and you can pop right through.

Don't worry though. Scienceforum's ports are all secure, as almost every website is.

However, a few aren't. Often conspiracy websites, etc.

That depends on what you meant. Did you simply mean to legally display content of shared folder, or shared disk, or disk mounted in local network?

Here is video tutorial how to mount (map) shared folder to virtual drive letter.

Map network drive to some letter, and try whether it's possible to show content of it inside of cmd, using cd and dir commands.

If you want to learn properly then you should take a course in it offensive security and cisco generally have courses. Alternatively you could try learning the metasploit framework on your own just be warned that it is only a pen testing tool and most ISPs will cut your internet access off if you use it on their network without prior approval from them.

Yes, you can use something like PuTTY. It's multi-platform, do it should work on most systems.

if a computer offers access through something like sshd, or a network directory through LAN, it is possible to use a program, that you call using the terminal to access the other computer.

One thing I use a lot from my terminal is ssh, which allows me to access my remote server so I can host my websites on them.
