You may have seen it before. You are sure to see it again. Its the famous Messenger.bat file.

if you haven't, here is the specs on it (ie: the txt behind it)

@echo off
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Goto A

Now, paste that into notepad. Save as -> Messenger.bat -> Under type, select All Files -> Click Save. Then, access the location you saved this to. Open the new batch file. You should see:


The user is the IP of the computer you wish to send a message to. Type the IP you wish, and press enter.
then you will see:


XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is the IP you typed. Message is where you insert.......well, I found that text like Hi does not work. If you try, you recieve an error.
ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA?!?!?!?!?!?! I don't know what to place here. If you wish, send a message to if you can make this work. If you wish to find your own IP, open cmd prompt. Type this: ipconfig /all. Make sure there is a space between g and /. Go down the page. Your IP will be listed.
I guess this is just not my strong point when it comes to computers.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well, a few views and no solutions...try this yourself if you would like to see what it should look like, and the various error messages that appear. Also, don't ask if I have it started in Admin Tools -> Settings. I do, dut it only takes away the main error. One still occurs afterwards. It says the message alias not found, which I also don't understand.

I've not found an answer for this, but I'm also not well-versed in the use of Messenger (I've turned it off on all of my systems). That being said, I'm having difficulties with some batch programming recently and am starting to suspect an issue with the differences between DOS batch files and Command Prompt batch files. Just a hunch tho'.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
