Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

By saying net send, do you want to transfer a file from one linux computer to another, across the network ... Also, do you want to transfer a file from one computer running Windows, to/from a computer running Linux
Either way, I would recommend using the ftp command (file transfer protocol). The command is found on Windows, and on Linux, but the syntax is different for each system. A batch script to do this in windows would be the following
echo "open MACHINENAME" > ftpscriptfile.txt
echo "user USERNAME PASSWORD" >> ftpscriptfile.txt
echo "ascii" >> ftpscriptfile.txt rem This will translate a text file (continued)
rem between Linux and windows
rem You could also substitute "binary"
rem instead of ascii for an executable
rem or archive file.
echo "get FILENAME" >> ftpscriptfile.txt rem or use "put FILENAME"
echo "quit" >> ftpscriptfile.txt
rem The following should do the transfer
ftp -n -s:ftpscriptfile.txt
Linux is the same idea, different syntax
cat - <<EOF > ftpscriptfile.txt
user USERNAME PASSWORD
ftp -n < ftpscriptfile.txt
Good luck and let me know if I should clarify further
