    You mean network game right? I mean you try to play in 2 or more computer without going online (via LAN). It's simple very network game usually need one valid cd key in each machine, if there are 2 same keys the games will refuse to play. If only on network, i advice you to get some keygen and generate different key to install on other comp.
    I know it's illegall but i think that the best ways.
    And dont do this trick for playing online, you will get banned for illegal keys, so used this, just for playing on your 2 comp in your house.
    Hope helps.
    Sorry for my bad english, m not very good!

    Don't disable the firewall to get into your own other PC. Rather in Zonalarm is a setting where you can enter the IP-address (like 192.168.0.1) of the other PC's that are allowed on your network.
    I used to have ZA but can't remember anymore how this was done.
    You have to enter these IP-addresses on each PC in your network.

    thanks fot the advice,I will do that to Zone Alarm.

    And i am trying to play a network game (lan) with my two networked computers,but what i wanted to now was if there was any other way to get to play warcraft 3 on lan without buying another version, just for the cd-key (or as u said using a keygen)???????

    No legal ways. When you bought the game you bought the liscence to install it on 1 computer at a time only.

    You can always play StarCraft. I know it supports Spawning of a another copy that can can join games created by the parent copy. I believe that you can have up to 8 playing off one copy(check the FAQ at Blizzard for more details on it)
