    So I will be having a few users longed onto my linux box via ssh using putty. Are there any programs where I could run the
    command see another account logged on and chat with that user directly. Just wondering

    Wall is a neat program but I was looking for more of a chat program then a announcement one. Anyways after some more searching I found ytalk

    Its exactly what I was looking for, the only problem is that it won't send any accept requests to other users who are logged on like it should. For example I type

    ytalk [email protected]
    and the user testuser never gets the accept request.
