    MsgBuddy is a simple windows-based application that provides a mechanism for administrators to publish system messages to users' workstations. MsgBuddy can be run from a NetWare login script, NAL, Workstation manager, or directly off the end workstation and reads an eDirectory object to retrieve the message to be displayed on the workstation. In addition, MsgBuddy can operate in resident mode, whereby after its initial launch, it remains resident on the end user's workstation and checks for new messages the administrator wishes to publish. MsgBuddy only displays any message once on any given workstation by using administrator defined serial numbers on the eDirectory object that contains the system message to be published.

    Additionally, the eDirectory object to be read by MsgBuddy on the end users workstation can be specified at runtime. This allows different workstations to receive messages from different eDirectory objects (administrators).
