I want to make a program to talk to people in a network, so i'll be using the system net send command ... I've a couple of questions though:
does anyone know if there is a way I can actually check to see if people are online or not?? there are computer names of course, but if a user logs onto a computer, you can either send the message to the computer name, or the user name of the person whose on it. (I'm sure you all know this already). I just think it'd be a neat way of making a program, kinda like MSN/Googletalk but on a console
also, is there a better way of communication besides using net send?
