Stuart

Start, Run, cmd

Get a DOS window up and type NET SEND * your message here

This will go to each computer on the same network as your and cause a simple
pop up box with the message in it. If you know the ip address of a single
intended machine you can type its address in instead of the *

Cheers, Mike

That is fantastic. You've answered a question I haven't asked.
Cheers!

of course, turning it on will, AFAIK, expose such to the WAN,
and you can expect to regularly receive various 'invites' no doubt.


However, if you have multiple PCs, odds are you are sharing an internet
connection (possibly using a router in NAT mode, whether for ADSL, ISDN
or cable) so you should not see any 'WAN' (ie internet originated) msgs
