  • Net Send command not working

    Hi all,

    I'm running XP Pro on my PC at the office and I attempted to send a message to a colleague of mine using the NET SEND DOS command. He's also running XP Pro, we're in a domain and running Server 2003. When i attempt to send the message it says message alias not found, but I know the name is correct. I can, however, broadcast a message across the domain but even then only a few people get it. Help please?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    What's the service pack level of the computers you have in there?
    Is the Messenger service still running on those?
    By default the messenger service is disabled on XP sp2 and thereafter.

      Has the Administrator applied a GPO to stop NET SEND working?
