I don't know what you exactly want to do, but

net send /domain:<computername> "" 

will make it 'beep'. If your goal is to run a program on a remote PC that does this, download http://www.proxima.de/rpcexec.zip

The problem is that we have a large network and we need a way to locate machines when sometimes all we know is the computer name. Someone is here is trying to do a remote beep on a machine so that he can hear it and locate it.  To me it is pretty stupid but it is not my choice. Anyway I think there are some programs out there to do that - but I can't find them.
