    Hi,

    Can someone answer a question for me. Im not infront of a Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 box. Can someone tell me if Net Send has been removed from Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 please?

    Thanks

    equivalent command is now msg

    Send a message to a user.

    MSG {username | sessionname | sessionid | @filename | *}
    [/SERVER:servername] [/TIME:seconds] [/V] [/W] [message]

    username Identifies the specified username.
    sessionname The name of the session.
    sessionid The ID of the session.
    @filename Identifies a file containing a list of usernames,
    sessionnames, and sessionids to send the message to.
    * Send message to all sessions on specified server.
    /SERVER:servername server to contact (default is current).
    /TIME:seconds Time delay to wait for receiver to acknowledge msg.
    /V Display information about actions being performed.
    /W Wait for response from user, useful with /V.
    message Message to send. If none specified, prompts for it
    or reads from stdin.

    so
    Code:
    msg /server:server1 console "oi wake up you useless user"
    looks like

    If one has to specify /SERVER:servername does that mean i can no longer
    send a message to all computers using:
    net send * "my message to everyone" ?
