You can create an event in server program that every client can catch and act accordingly.

server: raiseevent evnt1(cancel as boolean)


clients:
dim witheevents mysvr as myserver.main

in
sub mysvr_evnt1(cancle as boolean)
    msgbox "event is broadcasting"
end sub

of course, those are not real names.

There is no point in use other program. Windows 2000 supports boradcasting messages (as NT) to net but the question here is the program needs to do, not the system, am i right?
