Netsend question

  1. Having recently discovered the netsend command I tried to use it.

    Unfortunatly I couldn't get to grips with the syntax that typing 'netsend /?' displayed.

    Could somebody please tell me, if I wanted to send a message to say, IP address ;- (just a made up address)

    What would it look like on the command line?

    It would look like this:

    net send This is a test

    That's all there is to it :)

    cheers LNC. Just sent myself a message. I wish the syntax looked a little simpler when I looked at it. Never really did understand that syntax notation properly.

    You also can do it by user name on a network. Works the same way. What also works is "netsend * message" (without quotes). That sends to every single user on the network. I did that at my school once and typed "startling" messages to everyone and I almost faced expulsion.
