MSG 2.0 is a graphical NetBIOS (Net Send) application that has the ability to search your workgroup or domain for available computers, send a message to an entire workgroup or domain, specify the "From" field of the message, browse the file shares of a computer on the network, and more. New in version 2.0 is an optional remote web service component, the MSGProxyService. The MSGProxyService enables you to have all the same NetBIOS messaging functionality you do with MSG on your LAN on a remote network, all while using the same clean MSG graphical interface. Communication security measures implemented in the MSGProxyService include password protection, message integrity verification, and replay attack prevention. Running the optional MSGProxyService component requires a .NET enabled web server, such as IIS.
