I was wondering if there is any possible way to send a message to another computer using ONLY and IP adress. My friend said if was imposable to do, but I find that a little hard to belive. I know using the DOS command "net send" you can only communicate on subnets but not the ouside world. So if anybody has any DOS commands, programs or anything that would be great.

Use START > SEARCH > FILE OR FOLDERS and search for Winpopup.exe.

FWIW, I just tried it between two W98SE systems and unless both sides have Winpopup running, the recipient will *not* see the message.
