    1. Change the name of your computer. Control Panel->System->Computer Name. Beware that this way compromise your network setup.

    2. Code something using NetMessageBufferSend() which takes the from name.

    3. Get something that has already been created. See Netsend on this page.

    I had a friend that did something like this in VB. Basically he found the API for netsend and messed around with it and stuff.. It isn't that hard to find but basically this API for netsend allowes you to change var's and stuff...content of the message etc etc. I'll have to ask my friend what the link is and then i'll edit it but the best and most versitile way to do it is from the netsend API. Also, be aware that this doesn't provide full anonymity unless you spoof IP which is stupid since netsend isn't that big..

    Anyways ya..

    Read the two replies above yours. Geez.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    You write your own command-line program. AFAIK, that's the only way.

    You can try and use the NetMessageBufferSend command, that should allow you to put any namy you want as the sender too.

    If you're asking how to send messages anonymously from the command line, and don't want to write your own program to do it, then why are you asking on a network programming message board?

    Besdies, you can't specify the from field from the command line, so your only way to do it would be progmatically.
