net send accross internet?

By dshaykewich ·
Hi Folks.

I have a few questions about "net send"ing.

Is it possible to net send a message accross the internet to an IP address or FQDN?

Does a net send have to use Net BIOS?

Through which port does a net send come?

Is net sending limited to W2K domains, trees or forests? Limited to subnets?

Thanks!

DS

Here's a link that fully describes "Net Send."

(Please remove any spaces from the above link if you are pasting it into your browser)

Net Send is not OS geared... it'll work with any version of Windows with a network card activated in the computer. It's networking related more than OS related.

You can also do a "net /?" or a "net send /?" for an idea of syntax or other ways of finding computer names.

Yes, net send IPADDRESS "message here"
FQDN, probably not.
just make sure to open port 139 on your firewall.

................

net send uses tcp port 139(netbios)

net send uses tcp port 139(netbios)

It will work as long as the two computers can communicate over port 139.
