not sure if I'm undertanding the question, but to send messages to remote users, you can use the "net send" command, or right click the user in the RRAS MMC and select semd message. Users need it be on NT, 2000, or XP to recieve the message....

1. You won't be able to send messages to all users without having them load some sort of third party software. It might be possible if all of your dialup users were using Windows NT, 2000, or XP, but I highly doubt that.

2. Ummm... Where is number 2?

3. I truely do not understand this question. It is very broken english and not very much information is given. This question would also best be placed under the Windows 2000 section.

rmorphis may be correct, but since this is an ISP I highly suggest against doing this...

Only a small handful of your users will receive the messages. Some people actually WebTV, PDAs, Macs, Unix, Linux, Sun, Windows95, Windows 98, Windows ME, etc... ONLY the Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP users will get the message and that is not 100% guaranteed.

I would ise the "legal Message " section of the Login Message to force a user to see a message while logging in to the server.



 Add a Legal Notice Dialog box, but customize it to say something along the lines of:

 
                     Here is how to set that up:

That won't work on the other Opertaing Systems also, does it?

I didn't think it did, but I'm not sure.

Thanks

along with all above comments, event clients are WINNT, WIN2K,... as an dialup user to an ISP, no one would bother to use "login into network" option which is required to be able to receive "net send" message, as long as it's the only way for them to be connected.... AND an ISP which asks user to use "Login into the network" should re-consider their service layout because.... no ISP is doing so.

mpzlarge, I dont know the reason you want this option but usually ISPs use email to broadcast some important event (for ex., notice of down time) or to deliver warning message....

Correct! I had forgotten about the option that you would need "Log on to network" to accomplish that on top other the other drawbacks.

I believe your best bet is also to use e-mail notifications. I would imagine that you are trying to get more of a realtime notification system though.

One service that you could provide though is to tell your dialup clients that if they would like realtime notifications of alerts, if they have a messaging client like ICQ, Trillian, MSN Messenger, AOL, Yahoo, etc..., you could add them to you support list on your messenger client and send them any critical alerts. Being on the list would be the choice of the client and could be blocked by the client at any time for privacy reasons. I know that if my ISP offered this, it would be beneficial to me. :) I HATE not being notified about things!

BTW, Trillian is a free messaging client that allows you to add people to your "buddies" list and talk message people who have either, ICQ, AOL, Yahoo, MSN, or IRC! It's free and easy to use. That way you don't need to install all of those nasty IM applications on your computer to message them. It won't matter what IM client they use. You use just one! :)

I hope this helps!
