Well, a buddy here at work is looking for a way to display a popup on multiple workstations on our network. NetSend ability has been disabled so he is looking for a way around this. Since I have a little Java know-how, I thought I would get it a try.
I created a simple JFrame with a textArea and a send button. Then I created another JFrame with a textArea and a close button. So, he will type into the first JFrame, hit send, and the second JFrame pops up on the selected workstations.
My question is, where do I even start to have this interact with Windows and push it to the selected IPs? I researched it as much as I can, and I came up with MailSlots. Does this sound like a good approach, or is there some other avenue I should proceed down.
Any kind of advice would be much appreciated.

Nevermind, I will just create a socket and have a client, server relationship going on. I will just use a login script on the workstations to execute the client applications.
