    lol, I just discovered this marvel (netsend) last week in school and I was randomly sending "Raise your hand, I'm trying to see if there is any structure to the way they set up this network." I got a bunch of people to raise their hands, and it was totally random...it was like "BHS5219" and "BHS5220" were way across the room...the people who set up this network had no particular setup in mind...
    Oh yeah then I sent my teacher "Follow the white rabbit...", then it popped up on the over head, and the whole class was like "what does that mean Mrs. Campbell?" So she got out a pad of stick-its and wrote down who it was to and from, then put the pad on the projector. A friend had to go through some stealthy manuvers to get to it, then he whipped it across the room while her back was turned, I caught it, ripped off the top paper, then whipped it back. Mission accomplished! I guess she just totally forgot about it...
    Um...anyway , I wanna know how to stop these stoopid net sends that always pop up on my computer. I've been getting alot of lap dance and penis enlagement offers lately

    [edit] changed some stuff so this made more sense...[/edit]

    Yea, its the Messenger service. Since Microsoft has found out that Netsend is now more trouble than it's worth since brain-dead losers create companies to spam people with it, that they have disabled it on new versions of Windows by default.

    Err... I'm not very familiar with networking. Can anyone tell me what's port 139 about? Why can't it be 129 or 101 etc.?

    Ok net send works two ways
    NetBEUI style.
    net send LAB203-31 at my school would sent to to room 203 computer 31, due to our naming conventions.
    NetBEUI 192.168.x.x will send to the IP
    net send * just sends to everyone at once. Broadcasts the message. Max of 128 characters.

    fun is making an app that does
    system("Net Send * Hello and Welcome to SPAM, please disable your novel POS Server "); in an infinity loops

    No, I think it takes your computer (or name) off the network when it´s sent. I tried that an it said the name was no longer avaliable.
    But if you send it only to yorself it doesn´t. Strange.
    Anyway, sending it with * will only send it to your workgroup, probably to avoid sending it to every single computer running Windows and connected to the internet on the world.
    One of my friends did a net send * at school. They send a letter home but he ripped it when he got home.

    [batch file]
    :top
    net send * "For your convenience, the time is now %time%... thank you."
    goto top
    [/batch file]

    Though you may want to stop your local messenger service first

    And if you want to be a real $$$$$, and you know computer names on your network....

    "shutdown -r -m \\computername -t 1 -f"... guess what that does?

    no only computers on your workgroup, and you have to specify a computername

    no command prompt? aww, that's no fun

    my school learned the importance of not keeping their webserver on the same workgroup as the computer lab this way

    im trying to edit my prog so that the user entered string is the message, but the command is literal....

    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    
    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    {
    	string spam;
    	
    	cout << "Hello and welcome to Net!"
    		 << endl;
    	cout << endl;
    
    	cout << "Enter the message to send (max of 128 char): ";
    	cin >> spam;
    
    	bool done = false;
    
    	while (done != true)
    	{
    		//see after the * we would want the spam
    		//variable, but by this time the whole line
    		//in the system command is literal and is used
    		//as is. system also does not take two parameters...
    		system("Net Send * "); 
    		
    		//So it doesnt infy during testing
    		done = true;
    	}
    
    	return 0;
    }

    Why not be simple and just do a batch file with an argument like...

    [spam.bat]
    @ECHO OFF
    :top
    net send * %1
    goto top
    [/spam.bat]

    Then you can just do - ' spam "my message" '
