Text messaging within same switch?

Hello,

Does anyone know if it's possible to text message another user that is connected to the same switch? In my case it's a Catalyst 6509 running CatOS 8-5-2.

Thank you.

On theCatalyst 6500 running IOS you can use the "send" command. Don't know if there is a CatOS equivalent.

uc-dist#who

Line User Host(s) Idle Location

* 1 vty 0 craig idle 00:00:00 192.168.57.196

2 vty 1 netop idle 00:00:35 192.168.57.196

send 2

Enter message, end with CTRL/Z; abort with CTRL/C:

Hello Netop

^Z

Send message? [confirm]y

On netops screen on line 2 (vty 1) the message appears:

*** Message from tty1 to tty2:
