Hi experts,

I need to send messages from server to any of its client. Is it possible without any third party tool? I have IP, MAC and username of all the clients.
I need to send some notification to any specific client.
Scenarios can be:

1- Server is Win2003 and Clients can be WinXP, Vista, Win7 or Win8

2-  Server is Win2008Server(any edition) and Clients can be WinXP, Vista, Win7 or Win8

3-  Server is Win2010Server and Clients can be WinXP, Vista, Win7 or Win8

AFAIK if i use net send: It sends msg from 2003S to XP clients and needs messenger service to be at both end (But what to do for Others OS)
