Is there any way to use Windows "Net send" cmd to send an alert for the status of devices being monitored. I could use SMTP but my Exchange serve is not setting on my subnet. If I should have WAN problems then the email would never go out.

Thanks for the quick reply and for pointing me in the right direction. I'm new to this and fully don't understand what will be needed to make this work. Do you have an example of what the command should look like?

you could save all needed commands in a filename.bat file and then use the dude to execute this file whenever needed. I just noticed that there is no "net send" in Vista, so I can't test it.
