  1. I have a mini Lan a home! Both WIN 2000!

    I tried to make a Game Lan but doesnt work!

    I have installed a protocol IPX
    And set both to:
    internal network number:00000000
    Frame type:Autodetect

    What else did i miss out?

    TCPIP is already functioning as they are in same domain!

    What are you trying to play?

    If you're not going to play old games (like doom, Duke Nukem 3D) you won't need IPX..

    Do you use a DHCP server, or have you set the IP adresse manually?

    What are you trying to do? (What doesn't work?)

    i tried Diablo and Diablo II.
    I manage to install , but unable to play in multiplayer mode.

    Basically if i want to setup a Gaming Lan , i just need to setup my TCP/IP correcly right!

    PC1
    ip:10.0.0.12
    subnet :255.255.255.0
    gateway : 10.0.0.12

    Preferred DNS : 10.0.0.12

    PC 2
    ip:10.0.0.13
    subnet : 255.255.255.0
    gateway : 10.0.0.12

    Preffered DNS : 10.0.0.12

    Did i miss out anything?
