Sending a popup to 2000 computer from NT

By Mantacore ·
When sending a popup using net send <username> <message> from a computer running NT to a 2000 computer the pop up errors out. A popup can be sent if IP of computer is used but not name of user or computer name. Username is shown as logged in on domain and WINS is running on 2000 computer. Any ideas as to how to make 2000 get popups when using user name?

Sending a popup to 2000 computer from NT

Is the Messenger service running on the Win2K machines? It has to in order for the machines to accept a Net Send message. Other than that, Win2K machines accept Net Send messages just like NT4 machines do.

Hope this helps.

Check the DNS. W2K relies more on DNS than NT4 does. Check the computer accounts on the server (are you using an NT or a 2000 Server?) as well as the DNS entries on both the DNS server and the client.

Hi,

Can you ping from NT to 2K using the computer name?

If not then check the IP settings on NT and make sure it has the correct address for the WINS server (you mentioned it was on the 2K machine?)

Cheers,
Tim.
