Sending Mesages Over Wireless Network
I have a wireless network set up at home, using a motorola wireless router. I have 4 computers connected wirelessly to the network. I know all of their internal IP addresses... 192.168.10.1/2/3/4. I was wondering if there is any way to "chat" or send messages from one computer to another.
I tried using "net send" command (net send 192.168.10.1 test) but it says that it was not able to find the computer.
I want to know if there are any alternate ways to send messages to another computer, without installing additional software.
All the machines are running Windows XP.
Thanks a lot for the replies!
Most firewall software will block net send, its almost outdated nowdays, You could try other software like msn but for local chatting.. have a look on download.com etc.
I understand... but the point is to communicate without installing any software... I can use NETSEND (in DOS) or WRITE (in UNIX) when I am at my work place.
At home, I would like to do the same- without installing additional software. Do you think disabling firewalls would help?
