    Sending Messages over a network

    First of all i would like to say hi, so Hi

    Well here is the issue.

    I remember when I was in school me and others that knew how were able to message the other computers on the schools network. Its since been a while and I have forgotten everything but the idea of it. I think we used command promt or something but not sure.

    Basically on my home network I would like to be able to do that same thing. I have vista and a dlink wireless router which the laptop is hooked to.

    I want to be able to send messages special over the network like i did in school. Basically to play some jokes on the others since they arnt very computer savvy.

    2 of the computers are running Vista and the other is XP.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi samuel77,

    i dont know much about networking and messaging stuff but we use 'write' command to send messages over network. check its manual.
    man write

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
