ring system bell of connected computer (linux ssh)
 
I have made this bash script program that i run while logged into an ssh server, (while in the linux command terminal). The username "jking" would be another person logged into the same ssh server. I normally use this to send messages to other user's command terminal, but they don't always know they have gotten the message. Is there any way I could ring their computer's bell when the message is sent? would i need, for example, jking's computer's address such as 10.43.132.254 ??

your help is GREATLY appreciated! THANKS!!

Would something like
Code:

echo -e \\a
do?

If not, you might want to try the beep utility.
