    Get a firewall be it hardware or software and configure it to allow these messages out but not in...

    Or if you have windows XP/windows 2000 (I don't think net send is an issue with win95/98/me, correct me if I am wrong), you can go to administrative tools -> services, disable messenger. It is the messenger service that allows you to receive those messages.

    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    Can't disable Messenger Service 'cuz he still wants to be able to send the messages.

    nebulus, you are right about 95/98/me. Winpopup is the 9x/Me implementation.

    disableing the messanger service will still allow you to use the net send command. my computer is configured that way and my net send utility works fine

    I believe the netsend utility will only message computers on the same sunet. Can you change your subnet mask? Of course that would kick you off of the network, depending on the architecture of your network you may still be able to access the internet. I am not sure this is what you have in mind...

    I posted a thread in Tech Humor on some fun with net send at the expense of some skiddie if you would like it is located here .

    I think this was one of my first threads I started here...<ponders>
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?

    run "compmgmt.msc" goto services. and really it is just turning the "Messenger-service" to MANUAL.
