Default IM between computers on a network

I have 2 Windows pro SP2 computers on a wired network and was wondering if I could send a IM(instant message) the other computer.

I want be able to send one and have it pop up on the other computers screen. I don't want to use MSN messenger(or other IM program) because some one on the other computer would have to be signed in to it all the time.

Well, you could just use windows (msn) messenger, and have it set to run on startup, and to automatically sign in..

Is it a free download or paid?

Default

you can use the built in net command:

1. open command prompt
2. type "net send [name] "message"

replace [name] with the user name or computer name of the other computer/user

Ex:
(user name)
net send administrator "hi"
or
(computer name)
net send base-1 "hi"

*make sure the messenger service is enabled on both computers
*quotes are needed if message has spaces in them

LOL although that would work im pretty sure that was not the desired result.


trillian is a free download, im just not sure if that service is included in the free download as i have trillian pro3

search a P2P network for it who knows what you might find ;-)

Just wanted to add - for the net command, you don't even need the quotes for the message. And yeah, that's probably the best thing to use (if I'm understanding what you're asking for).

he said he wanted IM, but didn't want to use a service.


google search "serverless IM" comes up with a few good picks, try LanToucher if trillian basic doesn't have the rendezvous protocol
