Playing Games via IPX/SPX

Although I have never setup a games to play via a network, I have been saked so often, that I collected some answers from the newsgroups on this subject.

First, you need to understand the
IPX/SPX basics:
- since there is no server, you MUST define the
Frame-Type yourself !
- verify, that all systems have the same
IPX-Network address.
- make sure, that you have a valid PC-to-PC workgroup network using the "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks"
(don't forget: you must share SOMETHING, otherwise the system will not be shown in the "Network Neighborhood").
- enable "
NetBIOS" via IPX/SPX:

Select for IPX/SPX the
Properties:
on the tab: NetBIOS,
put the Check-Mark to
"Enable NetBIOS via IPX/SPX"
This allows now the Game,
running on different PCs,
to talk to each other.
