I am running three XP machines on the same subnet peer to peer via a switch. Could not get "net send" to work with messenger service running on two machines. It would send the message successfully as indicated in the command prompt window. The other machine got the message as indicated by Commview packet analyzer. But no popup window appeared on the machine receiving the message. Does this only work in a server client network? Am I missing something?
