There can be situations where a client may not have the option of integrating Spectrum with Exchange to send mail notifications. In this case clients can send the alert notification to a specific IP address using the Windows "net send" command.


Clients can use the AlarmNotifier to execute the "net send" command for sending alert notifications to an IP address. The client needs to have the Messenger Service running on the destination windows box to which the alert notification is sent. Once this is configured, the below command needs to be placed in the SetScript shell script after the line "if [ "$SENDMAIL" = "True" ]". Also the SENDMAIL needs to be set to true also in the SetScript shell script.

       net send <IP Address Of the destination machine> "PCAUSE"

Note: The above is just one condition to execute the "net send" command. You can use different conditions in the SetScript to trigger the command.
