For those who cannot send de message, you have to turn on telnet in both pcs.

windows 7 home premium 64bit.

The code does not run when I run cmd as admin. Error message "'msg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

Also, I turned on Telnet services. Anyone knows why?
