    Sending a message to a other PC over the network


    Hey! I was wondering if anyone know how to send a message over the network to a pc?
    On the same network ofc, I tried this on my NUC "Net send Strix_V3 hello" and it didn`t show up anything on my laptop. I don`t want any third party software.

    And, I`ve set up my NUC as a file server with a 1TB external hard drive, and I have shared the two partitions over the network, but when my stepdad is gonna acssess some of his files he get a message that the owner of the server needs to give him rights or something. How can I make my stepdad have the exact same rights as I have? :)


    Thank you :)

    Try just putting the words of the message in quotes and not the whole command.
    Saying that, I thought 'net send' was now obsolete. I think it's the 'msg' command instead now.

    So I`m gonna try "msg send Strix_V3 hello" ?

    net send hasn't been supported since XP. I believe you will need a third party solution.
