    Inter-terminal communication?

    I'm looking for some program that will allow me to send a message from my terminal, for example,

    Lightning25(at)Homecomp:/usr/dev> message Wintermute(at)Neuromancer Hi

    that will show up in the linked computer's terminal looking something like

    Wintermute(at)Neuromancer: Message from Lightning25(at)Homecomp: Hi

    or anything similar. The two computers share internet (duh) and are in the same house (so LAN). If you have any ideas or suggestions, be they obvious, obscure, or anything in between, your feedback would be much appreciated.


    PS. As I have not posted 15 times yet, I can't use the 'at' symbol (website blocker). Just try to ignore it. Thanks!

    I think the mail command is your best bet.

    If you were logged into their system, you could use the write command.
