  1. Im trying to set up both my machines ! xp sp3 pc, 2 vista notebook sp2.
    I have them set up atm so i can share files back and forth and can ping both machines, but when it comes to playing a simple game like age of empires they will not connect to play even though i can see the host machines created game. any help would be appreciated as ive scrolled through past similar threads here to no avail.
