Net send problem


H

Honjo

My pc is in p-to-p network. If I attempt to send a message to a peer pc
I get an error message. I am getting two different messages displayed
and accompanied NET HELPMSG numbers depending on whether IP or computer
name is used.

When IP is used the error message said NET HELPMSG 2273 for further
details.
When computer name is used, then NET HELPMSG 2136 for further
details.

I reviwed the above HELPMSGs but could not find anything wrong with my
pc nor the peer pc.

Please help.

2273 sounds like a syntax error. Are you typing it correctly?

Kaz,

Do you have a firewall on any of the p-to-p connected pcs? The Net
Send may be blocked by firewalls, and name resolution may be similarly
blocked.

I am typing in as follows:

net send aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

where aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd is the IP and xxxxxxxxxxxxx is the message text.
When computer name is used, it is used in place of IP.

This problem sysptom is the same when net send is attempted from other
computer.

I used net send successfully before at this same LAN but have not used it
quite some time since. I am wondering what has happend with the LAN or host
system.

I am aware that a firewall will block net send, but I double checked my PC
and peer's PC again to make sure firewalls are all turned off.

I used to use net send before but have not used recently. I wonder what has
happened with the network or host computer systems. I am using Linksys'
router/hub and 4 computers are connected to the hub. There is no other
problem with the networking operation.

Don't get all huffy if what i write seems stupid to you.

Did you turn off Messenger in services? Is it set to automatic?

I have firwalls (Outpost) running on my machines and net send is not blocked.

Kaz,

Several personal firewall products are known for bad behaviour
(causing network access problems even when "turned off").

If no other solution presents itself, try un installing each firewall,
carefully, using all procedures provided by the manufacturer. Reboot,
and try again. Re install after network access is established, if
required.

I do not understand what you mean. Isn't this your first post?

Yes.

So not all firewalls do that.

The firewall I am referring to is the one built in WXP so I can only turn it off
or not to turn it on.

net send command completes when messenger is turned on in windows services. go to control panel-administrative tools-services. find there messenger and start it. after you will start it, try "net send 192.168.x.x messeage"
