    Default Sending messages through Command Prompt

    Hey guys,

    I've never really used Command Prompt, only linux terminal. Is there a way to broadcast a message to everyones computer in a network through it? All the computers run windows vista business on the network, so netsend isn't there. Does anyone know any other way to do it?

    Thanks for the help in advance,
    Luca.

    Use Samba's smbclient with the -M flag, like so:

    Code:
    $ echo "Unix has taken over your network! Muhahahaha!" | /usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient -M <netbios name>
    Double check the syntax on that, but it should be pretty close.

    Sorry I forgot to mention that I want to send all the messages to the vista machines using a vista machine. Thanks for the help Thorn though.

    net send * "message"
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
