needs to be started on both computers before net send will work.
i want to send a message from my laptop running win xp to another computer also running xp.
in ms-dos prompt, i type "net send family hi" (family is the name of the other computer) but it says the alias could not be found although that is the name i gave the other computer. the laptop is wireless and the other computer isn't. i tried turning off the windows firewall but it didn't help.
any help would be greatly appreciated,
