Hye Sir,

This is quite interesting to do when you have LAN,

You can use this software Instant Messenger for LAN:

Just download and install


moins plus
if your message is small thn you can send by cmd prt
just type

net send computer_name msg

moins plus
Net Send doesn not exist anymore in windows 7 nor Vista.

Free replacement is MSG.EXE

Check it out ! But it does not work between XP and 7 computers for example.

You still have other applications such as LAN Messenger or dMessage.

How to use netsend.exe

netsend.exe /server /text of message

/server - target computer name
/text of message - text to send

Example : To send a message to computer name webmaster with text: "Hi! How are you?"
Command line reads: netsend.exe /webmaster /hi! how are you?

The Messages services needs to be enabled for this.

Go to configuration panel > computer management > services and be sure that it is enabled on both computers.

Unfortunatly for your wishes to annoy someone with messages, this most likely means your plans aren't gonna work this time around :-)
