    Telnet and net send

    Locked

    by hartbeatmr ·

    Hi all.
    I know how to start telnet in 2k and xp. BUT what is the correct way to send a message. Plus do i need to use spaces and or / \”” etc.
    I belive it goes somthing like this.
    ..net send 192.168.1.102 “Hi how are the kids”.. then push enter? Is this right? Please who ever sends a reply to this please put in an example just as it should be done.
    Thanks Mike

      hey mike,
      I don’t think you need to use apostrophes. I usually net send someone like this: net send 192.168.1.102 hello.

      Hi
      Thanks for getting back to me so fast. I tryed it just as you said and it told me it was a invalid command?
      This is how i started it. start>run>cmd and then in the command box i put in telnet and push enter. Then i put in “net send 192.168.1.102 hello” but with out the quotes.
      It didn’t work? Did i do something wrong?
      Mike

      telnet is used to talk to servers. if you are just sending messages to another person, you dont have to type “telnet”. just go to the command prompt and “net send” your message.

      c:\net send 192.168.1.47 hello

      hope this works this time =)

        to view some of the other commands for “net”, just type net /?

      The answers you have already are OK PROVIDED that you have Telnet allowed on both systems and any routers in between and that you are on the same loacl area network as 192.168.1.102 as that address will not be allowed past the first External router you hit, it is a local internal use network address only

      Hi
      Thanks for the help. That did the trick. So if i use it inhouse just use net send if i am some kind of server or corp then i would use tel net.

      Thanks alot. Mike
