Cool LAN : How to send message to windows users


Hi !
I just installed Redhat 9.0 and this is my first Linux OS version that i ever used. So i need support from ur expertise. Thank you in advance..

Here are my questions :

1) How to send message to other user in my LAN. Most of them are using windows. In windows I use 'net send' command to do that. Let say my friend's IP is 10.0.2.51. I just type 'net send 10.0.2.51 Hi there..' (without quotes) in command prompt and the message will popup in his pc. The IP also can be replaced with his network ID. If i want to send message to all user in group, i use ' * ' to replace the IP address. Also, can i receive their message?

2) How to make shortcut icons in my desktop that link to certain folder(eg: /mnt folder).

3) I had to mount and unmount my floppy for every time i want to use it. I want the code that will auto mount the floppy when it receives signal/data and it will be unmounted automatically after the tranfer is done. If there is, please tell me how to make the code executable.

Thank You ,

1. smbclient -M hostname <messagetext>

2. That depends on what desktop you're running. Gnome and KDE both provide means of doing this through right-clicking on the desktop.

3. I don't use floppies, but it sounds really tricky. Tried searching groups.google.com ?

I think the package your looking for is called supermount, or something similar. Personally I don't like it, I prefer to mount disks manually, but I know it's out there as my Mandrake installation uses it by default.
Like I said, I think it's called supermount but I'm not sure. At least you know it can be done.

My favorite version when sending messages to "peecee" users:

# smbclient -U bgates@microsoft.com -M <name_of_pc>
text of message
...
