Sending messages to other users

I was practising on a CLI in a lab the other day when a tutor simultaneously logged onto the router and sent me a message through the CLI. I did not know how to reply. Does anybody have an idea how this is done (or whether it was just a feature of the lab set up)

Thanks for you help

It is done with the "send" command. You need to know the line that the person is on to send a message eg.

R1#who

Line User Host(s) Idle Location

* 0 con 0 idle 00:00:00

66 vty 0 idle 00:00:02 192.168.5.2

Interface User Mode Idle Peer Address

So if you wanted to send a message to the user on vty 66

1) R1# send 66 - and then hit return

2) You will be prompted to type in a message and then hit Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Z

3) The message will then appear on the person console screen.

Or you can send it to everyone who is using a vty session on the device if you don't know the particular vty session though I think you can determine that with a "show user" or show line command. It fun to mess around with people who don't the command. :-)
