    Has Hyena come up with any resolution for the Send command yet?

    I just downloaded the v9.2 as trial at my new company - this is one feature I am looking for, but does not seem to be working.

    Hi,

    by default Windows XP does not allow this.
    But, it is possible to enable it with "AllowRemoteRPC" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Terminal Server :

    Reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa383842(VS.85).aspx

    The username for this can be a wildcard "*".

    (msg * /servername:myserver "my message").

    We need a easy function to broadcast a message to all logged on users in our domain.

    Currently, we open the Computer list, selecting all PC's and using the function "send message.." (ping option is enabled).

    But, this won't work with newer Windows versins.

    An idea:

    Allow the old and new way to send a message via config option, or so.

    Also, as a test, right-click on a computer and choose Sessions->Terminal Server Sessions. When they come up, right-click on one of the sessions and choose Send Message. Does that work for you?

    Hi,

    Hyena in running on XP still use the deprecated messenger service. Hyena is unable to send a message to Vista or above, because the messenger service has been removed in that Windows versions.

    It is possible to rewrite this function like the replacement "msg.exe" : http://www.petri.co.il/msg-exe-net-send-vista.htm ?

    The MSG.EXE ist also included in XP SP3 and will work in XP.
