G'day all, i have a problem, my desktop is connected to a LAN. My desktop has 2 NICs in it, one connected to a LAN and the other connected to my laptop. I have ICS set up on the desktop and i can connect the laptop to my lan and the net. The problem is that i wish to play network games on my laptop on the LAN my desktop is connected to. I have checked out some articles on this and i think its to do with the ports ics opens??? I have looked at the ports that directx and other games use for multiplayer and there are way to many to enter in the ICS setting. Anyone know if there is a better or easy way to achieve this goal. Also when i have ICS enabled on the desktop some games will not connect to LAN games, and i have to disable it to play LAN games on the desktop.
