Yes, but ...

What problem I have ? I'm novice in this (lan messages) and I need a little help .

I have 3 computers in LAN . I'm admin and my local name is HAL . Second user is HAL2 and third user name is HAL3 . We ping each other normaly.

We are all visible when I type ''net view'' command . We communicate each other in workgroup without problems .

But, I don't know how command for lan messages must sound .

Is it something like this : msg /server:HAL HAL2 message

Thanks in advance .
