This page has rather old content. I dont use the website very much. But I will not delete it. I hate links which suddenly do not work any more due to a new version of a website.

Alert for OSX:A simple Application, executable from the commandline which makes popup a message on the users Screen.
Source is here for your convenience.
With alert and this smbpopup script for OSX, you can make your Mac respond to "net send" messages like a Windows PC. Now you also can enjoy messages while surfing the internet and having your firewall off like "Danger, your Computer is insecure, immediately buy product xyz !". On the other hand, its a good thing to have this in a mixed Windows and Mac environment in your home or office. Install the neccessary software by opening a terminal window and type:
cd ~ ; curl http://www.biermann.org/philipp/OSX/instsmbpopup.sh -o instsmbpopup.sh ; sh instsmbpopup.sh
Send yourself a message with:
echo "testmessage" | smbclient -M
of course, that works to a windows machine too as long as the messenger service is running there. You might have to write:
echo "testmessage" | smbclient -I ip.address.of.machine -M netbios-name
if the connection fails using only the -M option.
