looking for net send type service
on windows there was this nifty program called net, which could do among other things send a message to any other computer on my network, or any network i was on. the sytax was NET SEND X.X.X.X "message"
you could use this as a simple way to get some one in the house's attention and stuff, and i was wondering if there was a linux program that i could use to do the same thing. one that would work with the windows one so that i could both send and receive messages from people on the network who weren't using a linux box. nay ideas, i tryed to find one on google but didnt have much time and couldn't find any thing.
