Command line syntax to send IM message on windows

I am trying to find some documentation on how I can format and send a simple IM message. I would like to, at some point, also send broadcasts to a group as well.

My goal is to call a script from my network monitoring server and have it send a message to me letting me know that an event has taken place. I am not a great coder, but I am doing similar things for other forms of notification and passing in the variables that I want sent to the reciever so I am hoping I can do the same with spark/openfire.



Personally, i’m not entire sure what you are trying to do in terms of “event”, in terms of sending a message across CMD might be a little bit difficult, although if you are still interested at this point, maybe this software could help: http://www.nsoftware.com/powershell/tutorials/intro.aspx (yeah, it’s not free but from what i can tell it seems to do what you ask)

you could have your network monitor send it to an email address and then use this plugin
