"Net Send" Problem

Recommended Posts

I am an Assistant Network Administrator at a public school and we are having trouble with students using the "net send" command to send each other messages. Teachers want us to be able to prove that the student is actually doing it. There is nothing in the Event Viewer that shows that they did it. Does anyone know of a solution to my problem?

I think that you should just disable it. I am a student who was using net send at my school. Once the tech specialist at my school found out what we were doing I received 2 referrals (punishment, like being written up, sent to the office, etc.) and I was suspended for a week. The tech specialist thought that one could use net send to send a virus so he was pushing to have me expelled from school.

 

I think that instead of trying to prove these kids are doing this just disable it. It will be easier in the long run. I had computer professionals at the meeting about my expulsion and they made my tech specialist look like he was an idiot.

 

Just disable it.

If you are on the computer in question then do this:

 

Right click on the "my computer" icon and select "manage"

 

Then open the "event viewer" and select "system"

 

Then select the "source" tab to organize by source. At the top will be a bunch of "application pop-up's"

NetSends register as those. So do pop up ads. As you read through them you will see that it shows the sender (either computer name or log in) and the message itself.
