Hi, what i require is an application which can broadcast messasge to all the clients within local area network which are running the same application. It would be simple if I have server where every client can post a message and client application can have timer but I don't want to involve server.

It's almost always a better idea to let a client pull information rather than trying to push information to a client. If you already have the infrastructure for a client to post a message to the server and for all the clients to pull it down, just stick with that. The model is much cleaner and less problematic.

What you are talking about is a messaging application where a server application places messages into a queue and the clients listen on that queue and process the messages as they are received. A truly nasty environment to work with. Look into MSMQ and there are a number of other messaging systems.

I'm not sure if the technology is still current so you will need to do some research!
