He said he wanted to send an IM to another computer without an IM program... the net send command is not an IM program. It uses the Messenger service (not to be confused with Windows or MSN Messenger which are two different things) built into XP. Network admins use the net send command to broadcast a message to all or a particular computer/user in the network.

I researched lantoucher and it uses the messenger service, too.

For my previous post - quotes are needed when the message has spaces in them (Ex. net send JSmith "Hi Mr. Smith")

Sounds like the net command is perfect.

It works without quotes in that situation, as well.

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
I'll try it out. if i have any problems i will make sure i'll ask,thanks.

<EDIT> How do you check to see if it's enabled on each computer?
Also will a firewall block the message?
