  1. I am having trouble using Net Send in the CMD on Windows XP SP2. Every time I try to connect to an IP address and send a message I get this:

    An error occurred while sending a message to
    The message alias could not be found on the network
    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2273.

    The xxx is the IP address. Works fine when I send one to myself. Any help on getting this to work?

    net send hasn't worked on a default install in YEARS. I think SP1 ended that crap on XP.

    There have been about 3 questions about this in the last month on TS. After being silent (if ever talked about) for many years? Why are people so interested in this now?


    I thought there was at least 1 more, but TS search has let me down.
