I wish to send a "net send" command to send a message from Unix (AIX) shell 
script to the Windows 2000 environment. The syntax from microsoft for this 
command is available under: 

This works from a DOS shell prompt using the IP address or the PC name, for 
example the below work in DOS:

net send gbrpc4049 a message
net send another message

I am unsure how to send from Unix script to Windows. Is there a similar 
command to "net send" available in unix shell script or samba ?
