I just came accross this post:
And what he is referring to is exactly what I would like to be able to do so I can notify users when the server is rebooting etc... Sounds like he had some mal-intent, but this could really be useful to me. Does anybody have a clue how to do something similar to this? What I would like to do is broadcast a message from my server (RH 7.2) to the user systems (windows 98), what the messages will be, I'm not sure yet, but I know one I will want to have is the shutdown notification. Does Linux have this built in already? How does one tap this resource?
Thanks in Advance!
