Sending sticky notes over local network to other Windows PCs using Notezilla

Hi!

The video given below will tell you how to send sticky notes over local network across computers using Notezilla.

What is Notezilla?

Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone etc). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are. Check out Notezilla’s homepage.

Notezilla allows you to send sticky notes to any computer using computer name or the IP address. The sticky note will be received directly on the recipient’s Windows desktop, if she is a Notezilla user too. Notezilla also supports sending notes to a group of computers at once. Using Notezilla, you can also send sticky notes to any computer outside your network anywhere in the world. However, this article will only show how to send sticky notes within a local network (LAN).

Transcription:

    To send a sticky note to any computer over local network,

  1. Click on the Notezilla icon in the taskbar, select New Note and write your note.
  2. Click on the top-left button (Note Menu button) of the sticky note and select Send To –> Computer (Or press Ctrl+G).
  3. A dialog box window will appear. Click on Manage Computers –> Add Computers. Add computers in the text box as per the format and select Next. The computers will be added successfully. Instead of computer names, you can also specify IP addresses. On certain networks, addressing by computer name may not work. In such cases IP address needs to be used.
  4. IMPORTANT: Follow the above steps on the recipient computer also (adding your computer to the recipient’s computer list in Notezilla). This will ensure that the Firewall settings are updated on the receiving computer also.
  5. After adding computers, you can now select the computer from the computers list in Notezilla, tick the first check box before the name column and click Send Now button to send the sticky note.

Allow Notezilla through Windows Firewall

Make sure to first configure your PC firewall to allow running of Notezilla. The firewall on the PC might sometimes not allow to send or receive notes.

You can search for firewall in Windows search box and you will see “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”. Choose this option and enable Notezilla. If Notezilla is not listed, then click on ‘Allow another app’ and add Notezilla.

If you are using any other Firewall tool (usually included with Anti-Virus software) then you will have to configure that firewall.

Make sure you do this on both sending and receiving computer.

  1. I’m trying to set up Notezilla over a Amazon Workspaces network.

    Even using IP Address for the other computer I need to send notes to, they still can’t make it through. I’ve added Notezilla to the windows firewall permissions as well. Perhaps I need to open a specific port in my Amazon backend to allow the traffic between them?
