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.

If you had read the post you would have seen it is about messaging between windows and linux. Anyhow to send messages from windows to linux with net send you can use SAMBA, yo will have to mess around with the smb.conf file tho. Read this http://au1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/smbclient.1.html

the quoted thread explains how to send from LINUX to WIN, as I told you: I guess to send from WIN to LINUX you will need to do some configuration of samba (see the post of dopefish)
and for the next time: think of google and the search function on this forum
I agree with you completely about using google. That having been said, did you google "net send" As a test, I did - the first result I got was spot on (although I knew about net send, I purely checked as a result of your comment about googling for answers )

I am aware of the configuration issues surrounding NET SEND and Linux.
My point was that Kingka was urging people to use google, or the forum search to look for answers to questions (which btw I totally agree with). However, Kingka had already asked a question that EASILY answered by using google (his question being 'what is NET SEND').
Oops... something must have snapped my mind, I am sorry!
But you know, looking for this windows-kinda stuff on google ...
Suppose I would have searched "net-send" on google (without adding "linux" or so), I might had come to a website that leads back to the dark-side (*feels darth vader breathing in his neck, as he is sitting at his mothers windows machine*) ... Websites discussing windows stuff are always so obscurious
