Im trying to figure out how to send messages to windows (win98) clients thru
my linux server (redhat 6.2).
I have asked around and all that people seem to be able to come up with is
to use samba and send them a message thru winpopup, which means they have to
have the winpopup messaging program open to recieve a message.
i want the messages they recieve to be displayed as an error message would
be, reasons for this are for things like alerting users that the server will
be going down in 30 mins and to make sure they save their work, and to
remind them of events,etc.
Does anybody know a way of doing this thru linux to windows clients on the
network? I know in NT you can message other users thru the 'net send'
command eg. net send /USERS Warning: System shutdown in 10 minutes.
