Can anybody help me with my problem :

I would like to send everyone connected on the (local) network a message ! (example : "HELLO" or "GET OF THE
COMPUTER YOUR TIME IS UP " ..etc..)

Are there any commands to do it ?

I'm working on a program with INTERBASE engine.
Does interbase support any such command I could use from Delphi 2.0 (client /server)

Windows supports the LAN-Manager messaging system. If your system is running e.g. Client for Microsoft Networks you will be able to send messages.
The functions are

NetMessageBufferSend
NetMessageNameAdd
NetMessageNameDel
NetMessageNameEnum
NetMessageNameGetInfo

Have a look at them by pressing F1 in code editor when the cursor is in the function name.

By the way, you can also send messages with "net send" on the command line. In a command prompt type "net help send" for more info. You could WinExec this command line with the SW_HIDE parameter.

Puppy, maybe this already works for you.
