From computer1:

net send "hello there" computer 2

If you're running Windows you can set up a simple peer-peer network that will allow you to share files, printers etc. if that's what you're thinking? Or do you actually want to send messages to and from each PC? A very basic way to do this is using the Messenger service and the net send command, there are a few freeware utilities that offer a GUI for this.

We used to use a program called "BorgChat".  It has more advanced features, but can also be used as a basic chat client.  It contains no spyware or adware.
