Hey everybody. I got a question. with the msdos command "net send", can this be used for out-of-network communications between computers? I can talk to others on my network with the command, but when i try it on other IP addresses out side of the network, it says that the alias couldnt be found. Also I have win2000. Thanks

I don't believe it can be sent outside of the system. Net Send "Computer" "Message" is for inside network systems. Thats all I think...not to sure though...

yes it can be used for other computers outside your local network. i believe net send does not work on win98 or anything earlier, so that could cause a problem. also, netsend won't work if there is a firewall in place.

i have successfully talked to neo over net send before.

Hello bnhshallow, welcome to UGN Security.

Just so that you know, we have covered this topic a few times already. One thing you should do before you ask a question is quickly take a look at some of the older posts to see if you're question has already been answered. I think we've covered net send a few times now, and really, it's not that great a thing. But that notwithstanding, read through this thread:

http://www.undergroundnews.com/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=000178

That should answer just about everything you want to know. If not, I'm sure there is a few more threads on net send lurking around. It does seem to be a popular topic.

Sorry for bringing it back up then lol. Actualy ive been looking at alot of the older post on the site (after seeing a few other newbies getting flamed, i thought i had better read a bit more before i posted) and i believe that i've seen that post that you gave me the link to already, thats probably where i heard of netsend. My problem is that i can't figure out how to send a message to someone outside of my LAN and i cant seem to find the info on how to do so on any of the other post (If i have, i must not have understood something with it). Im trying not to be the typical newbie (come in and expect all the awnsers to be given to me) but searching google didnt really give me and good info either, thats why I posted. Thanks for you guys time.

To send something outside of your network you use the same syntax as for inside your netowrk, which was:

net send

But in order for this to work the receiving computer must have windows messenger (not msn messenger) turned on. Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and ME DO NOT have this feature available. So no matter what you do, a box running any of those OS's can not receive a net send message. If you're gonnna send a message over the internet make sure you use the IP address of the computer you're sending too as opposed to the network name. Also, something like a firewall between you could stop the message going through.

hum, that all sounds familiar, /me peers at my earlier post. i believe you can download something for win98 and before that will allow it to recieve net send messages.

Ive seen that post. Like backslash said, there is a way to netsend people without XP/2k/NT (mess95.exe) but that wasnt my problem. What i have been asking is, is it possible to message someone outside of my network. Thank you for awnsering that.
I posted on the forum because i didnt know if that information that you just quoted worked since I tried to netsend a person with an XP outside of my LAN and it said "The message alias could not be found on the network".

net send isn't just within your network. All you have to do is type
net send ip message

When you get the alias cannot be found error, they don't have NetBIOS installed, so it can't send it to them. That's all it is. net send works exactly the way it is regardless of whether the destination IP sits on the local network or an outside network.

correct pergesu..

but if you're in a LAN.. if you know the host name

for example you're COMP1 and you wanna send a msg to COMP2 then you just type.

net send COMP2 "message"

or if you want to send a msg to every host in the network.. to all the computers.

then use this:

net send * "message"

Thanks Pergesu and black^pimp. Infinite, If you dont want to read questions from newbies, just stay away from the newbie section. Like I said, im sorry that I had to bring this topic up again, but I have already explained why I posted in the first place. Other than a few people, This place is really great, I have learned alot from this forum over the last few days by just reading what others have posted.
I intend to keep a low profile from now on and keep reading so I dont commit another sin of asking people to repeat info. Thanks alot all you guys.

/me growls

OK, listen up. I'm really sick of this now.

bnhshallow, you ungrateful puke. Who the hell do you think you are? I'm one of the most active posters in this forum. I answer every question I know the answer too, and lots of times I look shit up if I don't. I give you a resource to look through to try and help you, and I even wrote out a post explaing it for you and you have the nerve to talk shit? Fine, fuck you pal. Don't ask me for shit again. You get no more help from me, understand?

My point was that Blackspider, Backslash, myself, pergesu AND black^Pimp all have re-posted the exact same info, and that is what was making this thread retared. There is almost nothing more to be added, and the posts are redundant. Read this whole trhead from start to finish, it 2 posts repeated over and over.

The next time anyone feels like lecturing me on the finer points of the newbie forum go look at my previous posts. I answer a hell of a lot more stupid questions than the amount of times I ever say shit to someone.

And btw, feel free to kiss my ass too.

Infinite
