Hi,

I would disable the Messenger service (what Net Send uses) as it is a BIG security vulnerability and cause for many-a-exploits. I know that is not what you asked, but figured I would throw it out there as most security products and firewalls would block such a communication.

No.  You can send a message to a user, users on a computer, or a domain, but no subset of those.

You can send a message to a domain or workgroup: net send /domain:domain_name "text" or can try create a group of users and send to the group: net group groupname username /ADD

Here is the batch file I use to NET SEND to multiple PCs.

@ECHO OFF

SET PC.1=PcName1
SET PC.2=PcName2
SET PC.3=PcName3

ECHO ENTER MESSAGE HERE.
SET /P Message=

FOR /F "tokens=2 delims==" %%A IN ('SET PC.') DO NET SEND %%A %Message%
ECHO.
PAUSE
EXIT

Open in new window

You can customize the NET SEND command from my batch file with the msg.exe in Windows 7, suggested by ve3ofa.
