       nwmsg - Deliver NetWare user broadcast messages

       nwmsg mount-point

       nwmsg  is called by kerneld when a broadcast message arrives from a NetWare server.  nwmsg
       fetches this message via the mount point and delivers it to the user using  the	same  way
       write(1) uses.

       Please note that kerneld must run when broadcast messages should be delivered to users.

       NetWare	servers  can  send  asynchronous  broadcast messages to users, either on explicit
       request by another user, or when  the  server  is  shutdown.  The  client  workstation  is
       informed about this event by an IPX packet on a special socket, the message socket.

       This  can  happen at any time, so the user has to be informed about this event whenever it
       appears. I chose to use the kerneld feature of the Linux kernel to call the program nwmsg.
       For  nwmsg,  I used the relevant parts of the write program, so you can expect the NetWare
       broadcast messages to appear where user messages would appear.
