Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

Is it possible to send a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line to selected users (automated from a script), either from the server where the messenger agent is running or from a different server?

Hi,

As far as I am aware what you ask is not possible.

Cheers,

Betreff: Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

this may be possible with Tools.

Per example, i send mails over groupwise in Windows with the blat.exe Utility (see sourceforge).
Show here for Linux tools

Re: Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

Blat.exe is purely for sending emails, not for sending messenger "popups".

I found 2 utils on sourceforge that can send messenger messages (Pidgin IM, ImGiant Instant Messenger). But those are GUI client utils, so not usable for what I want to do...

Pidgin was may first thought, and I found this, so maybe it is possible?

Re: Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

you should be able to do this in a browser window with this command:

Typing this in a browser: nim:startIm?username=<user_name>&message=This is a test message then let the Messenger client handle it

or from a command line in a DOS box, with this:

nmcl32 "nim:startIm?username=<user_name>&message=So, like, take off, eh?"

Naturally change the <user_name> to be the Messenger user you want to send the message to.  That will bring up the client window, providing that the messenger client is running.  I haven't tried it if the messenger client is not running.

Re: Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

There's no browser, there is no DOS, there is no messenger client. What I want is to send status messages from a script from a headless GUI-less Linux server. So this is not a solution at all!

Re: Sending a Groupwise Messenger message from the linux command line

About nexmo: It's not very clear what they are selling, nor what I need from that, and they don't mention Groupwise messenger anywhere as a supported feature....

In this case, it is not likely to be something we can help out with but let me check and get back to you.
