Hello,

I'm trying to find out how to send text based or another type of message though command prompt directly to another person's computer just knowing their IP address.

Please help me out!

Hi,

It is easy to send messages through cmd prompt to other systems here is the answer first we have to set our systems messenger ACTIVE. For it, follow these steps:
  • 1. Go to RUN
  • 2. Type
    services.msc
  • 3. Scroll down and right click on MESSENGER
  • 4. Select PROPERTIES
  • 5. Then for enabling it go to STARTUP TYPE and select AUTOMATIC
  • 6. Then OK


And this should be performed on both sides (SENDER & RECEIVER). After that if you want to send message then do the following steps:
  • 1. Go to cmd prompt
  • 2. Type syntax as follows:
     net send <ipaddress of reciever>  <message to be send>


Ex:
net send 172.16.6.99 "hello" 


Thanks!
