Hi there,

Anyone here know the necessary API calls to allow me to send a message to a given user across a Netware Network.  I really need the code to work under '95 and NT.

Thanks

Pete

This is part of a Broadcast app I wrote.

Private Sub Broadcast(sSendTo As String, sMsg As String
  Dim sShell As String
  Dim lRes As Long
 
  sShell = "Net send " & sSendTo & " " & sMsg
  lRes = Shell(sShell, vbHide)
End Sub

Basically you call this passing the user name and message:

Broadcast "cbardwel", "Test Message"
