I'm trying to send a message over the network to multiple PC's that are on a different versions of windows, mainly windows 7 and xp. With XP the net send command works fine. With windows 7 I understand we cant use the net send so instead use msg.
I struggled with this first but managed to get it to work between PC's i.e windows 7 to windows 7 by enabling a registry setting. I think it was "AllowRemoteRPC".
The problem I have is that when I try sending msg on server 2003 to my pc which is on windows 7. A message comes up saying RPC server is unavailable. I don't really want to use third pary software so if anyone has any ideas that would be great.
This is the command I use:
msg /server:computer user "This should work on windows 7"
