not finger

finger is for user info lookup, I think. May be you should try write or wall(I am on HP-UX). But use may be restricted in a networked environment.

I got it mates. we can use the echo command.

echo "<message>" > <terminal full path>

for example; echo "hi krish" > /dev/pts/0

You can use "talk" too

talk is another feature provided by UNIX.

look for "man talk" in UNIX prompt
