I want to broadcast a message to every machine on a network.  I can't
find anything in the man pages.  I know that shutdown seems to do this.
Any help would be appreciated.


1. Broadcast RPC (Well, any network broadcast code...)

Hello there,

I am hoping someone will be able to help me.....

I am trying to write a program that broadcasts (RPC or not) out to the entire
local network, with all hosts running my program to repsond, with the
original instance printing the results.

I am after a similar effect to rup, and rusers. I can't find any code
relating to these anywhere - I presume the versions I have are proprietry Sun
code. I had hoped that there were BSD versions somewhere, but archie turned
up nothing.

I posted a while back about broadcast code, thanks to all those who replied,
however useful as what I was told was, it doesn't really help me in my
current problem.

I hope someone out there can point me in the right direction....
