Click Start| RUN | type "Cmd"
net send ipaddress <message>

If this does not work, perhaps the net send service has been stopped recently or has not been loaded, in this case, at the Start -> Run command type the following

net start messenger
You may test it now at: 202.9.149.226 (mine)

I believe you can do a net send to an IP out of LAN only if you're both using XP.  If you're using NT, they need to be on your network.  There's really no software you can use for it that I know of unless you both are running something on each of your machines.  (A la winpopup, etc.)

hi
net send is a facility for NetBEUI. I think you will can not send messages using this command. This is only for workgroup network.

In Windows XP Home, disable the firewall, internet connection firewall. Also enable Messenger Services (start>run >services.msc)

In windows 98, enable file and printer sharing, if its not available, install it via control panel > network.

something due to the firewall/proxy.

based on this other experts may have some idea.

Are you using a proxy server to get out off your LAN?  Proxy servers won't let ms messenger packets through.

Take a look in the internet explorer browser: tools - internet options - connection - LAN settings - proxy server.  What do you see there?

This stuff is not meant for Internet use - most firewalls will block NetBIOS ports (not NetBEUI, there's a difference), and your ISP or any other routers along the way might block it too...if you want to msg, use icq, msn messenger, or send an email :)

mrbasilCommented:
From what i have been told, it is possible to send message to internet ip address only if both users ISP's do not block the netbeui ports in use for netsend. If no ports are blocked at either isp, or any other gateways in between it will be possible to netsend over the internet.

I and a Friend currently do this, however we are both using the same isp.

You can send messages using net send command to a remote ip, if a remote computer is a NT platform, has messegner service running, has using no firewalls, etc . So, it is totally the same as sending to a LAN computer.
