    Default Sending msg thru LAN

    hello...

    I seen at school(win 2000) that people can send short messages to other users thru the network, (Kinda like instant messages, except that you can not reply to the sender).

    I was wondering, can I set that up in a LAN of 3 pc's? 1 running winxp pro and 2 running win2000? if yes, how can i do that??

    thanks

    Get a command prompt

    net send (computer name or IP address) (message contents)

    i.e.

    net send 192.168.1.2 wow isn't this exciting

    or

    net send yourmachine no it isn't really

    I made a thread a while back, search for:
    Chilling_Silently and the thread was called something like "Net Send Spam"

    Has lots of interesting other things you can do with Net Send etc. :-)

    if you want to look at something a bit more intuitive and permanent, try a program like lanchat or windows communicator.. win2k comes with something similar built in called winchat but its not that great

    Get a program called "Fomine Messenger". Is is the MSN for lan's. Really good prgram, VERY easy to use and looks good.

    I've used a program called "Message Popup" on a LAN in a school. Works ok with Win95/98, not sure if it will work with XP. It's better than windows inbuilt message popup, but isn't a chat window like MSN.
    Best of all it's freeware.
    Give it a try.
    Cheers Lucy
