Multiple line messages in net send command

How can I put line breaks/carriage returns in to a message that I want to send via net send? - is there a standard line break representation that can be included in command line arguments?

Re: Multiple line messages in net send command

Hello,

since we are able to send mulit-line messages
to Windows boxes from UNIX using CIFS/9000 or
Samba, it is possible to receive them, at least
;-)

But I am not quite sure about the "net send"
command being bale to actually send it, as that
command has to be started from the "cmd.exe"
interpreter - and that one does only allow up
to 127 character/single line commands :-(

You coult try to write your own "net send"
command, though (or to port "smbclient" from
the OpenSource product "Samba")...

Re: Multiple line messages in net send command

Hi John,

I was able to send at least 895 characters to a station, but the font is a non-monospaced one, so there is no way to play around with blank padding !

May be you need to extract a systemcall and feed it from a small C-program.

Re: Multiple line messages in net send command

Hello again, John,

with a little luck I just tested the "smbclient" for Win32
and it is doing what you want and FREE...
Extract it a directory which is included in your PATH
and give it try with

smbclient -M target < file-with-many-lines

See attached file.
