Sending messages on a network

is there a way of sending messages to my networked computer without having to be on the internet we can do it through msn but we have to be online for that please help:confused:

Try opening a command prompt (DOS Box) and type “Net ?”. You can use the prompt to send messages. For example:

Net send [computer name] This is a test

The above (without the brackets) will send “This is a test” to the other computer.

Back in the old days of Windows 95 , we had WinPopUp. Now there’s this.

Looks good. It puts a nice interface on a simple command line utility. I have the service disabled on my home machines, but it would certainly serve the purpose he has… until it expires anyway! :wink:
