Hello. I'm having a quite annoying problem.. hope that you'll be able to help me.. I was trying to play Red Alert 2 with my friend on LAN, but it didn't really work. I know that this game requires IPX protocol on both comps in order to work, and I enabled it, but it didn't help. I have two network cards on each of the comps, and enabled IPX protocols in all of them. I also tried all forms of IPX Frame Types on both of the computers, but it still didn't work. I was told to try and test DirectPlay via the DirectX. At first, the two comps couldn't even detect each other, but when i changed the Frame Type to Ethernet II / Ethernet 802.2 - one of the comps did detect the other, but couldn't connect to it for some reason. I was also told that RA2 works on IPX Frame Type 802.3, but as I said, I've already tried that, and it didn't work.. I'm using a crossover cable, not a router, and network is working with ICS. The host comp's OS is Win XP, and the other is Win 98 SE.. Help would be greatly appreciated :] TIA.
