I know there is a command to send a user to one user or ALL users logged on the system (SSH) through SSH. I've enabled APT; so I was pondering if there was an thing I could install to enable this write command.
Thank you very much.

You said "write command", so maybe you're looking for wall? Only thing is I think it writes to all users only.
Posted by Ricky123456 on Oct. 15 2007,17:52Hmm. Sorry that sentence doesn't really explain... Yeah there's wall; nevermind this is sorted now I used the command apt-get install nwrite so now I use nwrite (certain user) then the message. Thank you. ;) And thanks for replying fastly.

Posted by Ricky123456 on Oct. 21 2007,12:55Yeah, talk works also. Although it doesn't for me; an error with the talk daemon.
