And your question is?

net send /? gives you all the details you need.

All you have to check is that the messenger service is started on all devices.

+ NET SEND install (steps to send messages on
local network between PCs):

to INSTALL the service (to make it work on your copy of
Windows, you need to do this on every PC you wish to
send/receive messages):
1) left-click on "Start" button -> choose "Run" (or hit
"Windows+R" key on your keyboard)
-> type in "services.msc"
2) scroll down to "Messenger", double-click on it;
3) change "Startup type:" into "Automatic" and hit "Apply".
4) then hit again on "Start" -> "Run" -> "cmd"
5) type in: "net name", then hit "Y" and let
the service start...
5) type in: "net view" to see all the names of all the
PCs on the network

1) Start -> Run (or hit "Windows+R") and type in:
"net send pc-network-name message"
(i.e., you should type in exextly this:
"net send toshiba1 hey, there")
- Where "net send" is the command, then thru space, you
should type in the name of the PC you're addressing on your
network (use "net view" command to find out the name of your
PC and the one you need to address), and thru another space
goes "message" - that's where you supposed to type the text
of your message!

Now, every time you need to send another message, just hit
on "Windows+R" key on your keyboard and just correct the
last part of the command, changing the text of a message
into a new one and hit "Enter".

ON ANOTHER END, the message will appear, saying from which
computer it came (network name), what time and the text of
a message. The user on another end cannot copy and paste
messages' text, but has the only option - press "OK" to X
it out from the screen.

- IF, AFTER YOU REBOOT YOUR PC, when you try to send a message,
you get an error message, you will need to re-start your
"Windows Messenger Service":
click on "Start" -> "Run" type in "cmd" (then Enter), then type
in "net stop messenger" (hit Enter), then wait 10 secs, and then
type in "net start messenger" (and hit Enter).

+ OR, if you want for "NET SEND" to work every time after you
re-start your windows (your computer), you will need to do this:
a) open "Start" -> "My Computer" -> "Drive (C)"
b) click on "Tools" -> "Folder Options...", click on "View" tab
and make sure that the "Hide extensions for known files and
folders" option is UNCHECKED!!!
c) in the folder, right click on a blank spot and choose: "New"
-> "Text Document" - name the file "messenger.txt"
d) open the newly created file, copy and paste this text in it
exactly the same way as follows (do not include dashes in the
file, they are to show you the start and the end of the file):

@echo off
sc config messenger start= auto > nul
sc stop messenger
ping -n 10 -w 1000
sc start messenger

e) hit on "File" -> "Save" and X it out;
f) now rename your file from "messenger.txt" into "messenger.bat"
and hit "Yes" (if message comes up);
g) now right-click-and-hold on that file and drag it onto your
desktop - choose "Create Shortcut Here";
h) right-click on this newly created shortcut and hit
"Properties", then in the "Run" field choose "Minimized" and
then hit on "General" tab and type in this in the top field:
"Re-Start Messenger Service.BAT", then hit on "Apply" and then
on "OK" buttons.
i) now you need to MOVE this shortcut to your "Startup" folder in
Start -> All Programs. The best way to do so: click on "Start"
button, then hit on "All Programs" and then find and
right-click on "Startup" folder and hit "Open". Now you can
just move (or copy) the shortcut to this newly opened folder!
