I've been researching trying to find as much information as I can, but I'm falling short on being able to execute this.
I'd like to use the msg command to send a message to someone on the same network as me. Both computers are Windows 10 Pro.
Unfortunately it seems like a lot has changed before Windows 10, msg replaced net use, msg requires certain permissions which are configured in certain administrative tools which seem to have been removed from Windows 10, etc.
Essentially what I believe is happening is that if user A is trying to send a message to user B that user A needs the
message permission of the Remote Desktop Services permissions on User B's computer. From what I can tell, you're supposed to configure these permissions in Windows Administrative Tool called Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, which has been removed from Windows 10.
What I've been trying is, say I'm user A attempting to message user B:
msg userB /server:userB'sComputerName Hello!
Then the command returns:
userB does not exist or is disconnected
On the other hand,
msg /server:localhost * Hi works as expected, I get a message box saying "Hi" - so the command works, I just need to know how to use it across the network to another Windows 10 machine.
Any guidance appreciated.
