Windows: Sending sticky notes to another computer using the IP address

This post will tell you how to send a sticky note to other PC computers in Windows using it’s IP address. We will be using Notezilla for this purpose.

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.

Send sticky notes through LAN

One really helpful feature of Notezilla is that you can send sticky notes to any contact across the globe. Your contact may be in the same network (LAN) or over the Internet. You can also send sticky notes to a group of contacts at once.

This is really easier and faster than communication through mail. Also, to maintain privacy & security, the sticky notes will be sent internally over the local network using the recipient’s computer name or IP address.

Sending notes through the IP address is a better option when you have a lot of computers to send notes to. But what if you don’t know the names of all the computers? Just specify the IP address. You may even want to send the note to a particular computer rather than a particular person, thereby ensuring that the note reaches the computer regardless of who is using it.

Watch a short video that shows how you can do this:

To send a Notezilla sticky note using the IP address:

  1. Select a sticky note in Notezilla, right click on its title/toolbar and choose ‘Send To->Computer’ from the menu.
  2. A ‘Computers’ window will be displayed. Click on the ‘Manage Computers’ button to add a new computer or edit the existing ones.
  3. Click on the ‘Add Computer’ button and add computer details in the text box. The format will be – First name, Last name, computer name. Here, instead of computer name you can specify IP address also.
  4. Click on ‘Next -> Finish’ and finally select the ‘Send Now’ option.
  5. Your sticky notes will be instantly sent to the computer(s).

Allow Notezilla through Windows Firewall

Here are some points to ensure that the sticky note reaches successfully on another PC.

Notezilla should be installed on another PC also in order to receive the sticky note.

If you are sending note from Computer A to Computer B. Then Computer A should have Computer B in its computers list. This ensures that firewall is configured correctly. On Computer B, go to a sticky note and select “Send To Computers” and ensure that you have added Computer A. Only then you must attempt to send note from Computer A to Computer B.

To troubleshoot further, make sure to 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.

This way your contacts will receive the sticky note right on their desktop if they are a Notezilla user. If not, they will receive the note as an email. The note will reach safely even if the receiving computer is turned off.
