NET SEND compatible

Winsent Messenger relies on its own implementation of the standard SMB protocol. This protocol is used by software products like Microsoft WinPopup, Windows Messenger Service (net send command) so Winsent is fully compatible with them. This feature allows to send and receive messages from the computers with one of these programs installed. You will be able to receive messages that are sent by system administrator with the "net send" command, messages from Unix users that are sent with the smbclient command, messages from printer spoolers, etc. (Read more about net send command and messenger service).

Compatible with terminal server and newest Windows versions

The unique internal architecture of the Winsent Messenger allows many users to run it on Windows Terminal Server simultaneously. Winsent works on all versions of Windows (7/Vista/XP/2000) including Windows 7, where Messenger Service and net send command are missing. All the mentioned features allow to use the Winsent as a full replacement for Messenger Service (net send command) and Microsoft WinPopup.

Does not require a dedicated server or an internet connection

Winsent Messenger sends and receives messages in real time, without using intermediate servers. The messages are transmitted directly between sender and recepient. Winsent does not require a dedicated server, third-party services or an Internet connection. As Winsent does not use insecure public networks (Internet), your secrets are safe. Messages are only transmitted within the bounds of your local network.

Low usage of system resources

Low usage of system resources comes out of the great optimization work. Winsent Messenger is a compact program. Its distribution package size is about 600 KB. Winsent works silently in background mode, consuming very small processor and memory resources.
