Easy chating in windows XP using Command Prompt

Chatting through a PC on a network is possible in windows XP. Although, you can only 'talk' with one computer at a time because you can only type one IP Address at a time.

to see your current IP Address, feed your CMD with this command
or you can also use

ipconfig /all
to see all of your network card IP Address.
To start you chat session, fire-up your favorite text editor (like Notepad or Notepad++ and use your copy/paste ability to get the code below:
@echo off
echo Welcome To Your Windows Messenger
set /p n=Send TO:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Goto A

now, save this code with any name you like but you MUST put the .bat extension. To save in notepad, go to file>Save As.. then save it like this: "chatter.bat" - including the quotes!.

NOw, go to the location where you save the file and double-click it

You should see something like this:

chatter windows

After “Send TO” type the IP address of the computer you want to contact.
You should see this:

chatter ip address

Now type in the message you would like to send.
Before you press “Enter” it should look like this:

chatter message

Now press “Enter”, and start chatting!
