hi there guys! Well I have a question/problem.

1. I wanna know is it possible for two computers to exchange text messages(WITHOUT USING ANY MESSAGING SERVICE PROVIDER COMPANY YAHOO, MSN etc) only with a fundamental way like using IP address of both computers

2. Is it also possible on Win 8? if yes then how difficult is it? any tutorial???

I heared of a way "net send" but that doesn't work on win 8 on win 8 command is msg but msg works on server:username type syntax and I want to send a text message using ip address not servername:username

like I guess thing should look something like

command ipaddress "Message"

and on win 8

msg xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx "How are you doing"

 

doesn't work

It is easy to send messages through cmd prompt to other systems.

First we have to set our systems messenger ACTIVE for that follow these steps;

1. goto RUN (Win key + R)
2. type services.msc, enter
3. scrolldown and give RIGHT click on MESSENGER
4. select PROPERTIES
5. then for enabling it go to STARTUP TYPE and select AUTOMATIC
6. then OK

This should be performed on both sides (SENDER & RECIEVER)

after that if you want to send message then do the following steps

1. goto cmd prompt (Win key + R, type cmd, enter)

2. message syntax as follows

net send ipaddress of reciever "message to be send"

eg: net send 172.16.6.99 "hello"

Whoops... I just read you are on Win 8.... will follow just now with your directions. :wink:

 

edit: I'm a Win8 noob forgive me, it appears that this isn't possible without using names... Most simple way would be any lan messaging program like Softros or lanmsnger... or you pick... there's plenty.

They've implemented a load of great security features in Win 8, such a shame about the obligatory Metro desktop.... MS appears to be keeping form by releasing beta versions as full OS products, every other release.

 

Really looking forward to Win 9. The start menu will be a "feature" again.
