Please help me with half-life LAN game

  1. i have two computers linked with an ethernet hub and wires. both computers have xp home and the lan i set up works fine. but when i host a game on one and try to join from the other, it says "Could not connect to game server reason: LAN servers are restricted to local clients (class c)" Please help with this!!
     
  2. i have had this problem before
    im pretty sure the answer will be in lan settings
    change the security level to zero - remembering that it is only those two computers on the lan so it wont be a risk to lose security
    if that doesnt work try some of the in game options and hunt around
    also what game are you using?
    regards

    well i managed to solve this problem by changing the ip addresses. it turns out that class c means that the first three sets of numbers are identical.
    i.e. 111.111.111.111
    *and 111.111.111.112
    that seemed to fix it alright, i just hope it stays that way
    the game is half-life v. 1.1.1.0 (not with steam)
    thanks for your help
