    I am trying to multiplay Tiberian Sun on two XP computers through a network connection.
    I get as far as the "lobby" but can't see the other computer. I have loaded the IPX protocol.
    I have consulted the manual which says to refer to the reference card for additional information. The trouble is I don't have one.

    Help would be apprieciated, by me and especially the kids

    i got this off another forum someone had posted

    This is for Tiberian Sun, running multiple players, using the LAN

    The problems I typically saw were:
    - couldn't see the other player in the lobby
    - saw the other player, but lost them when they started a game

    I am running multiple PCs behind my firewall, using a wireless router.
    All PCs have Win XP.

    1. Start by verifying all of the PCs have the IPX protocol available.
    - go to Network Connections
    - right click on the connection you are using (I use my wireless
    - right click on properties
    - check the list of protocols shown, look for one that starts
    like NWLink IPX/SPX/....
    - if it is there, then go to the next step
    - if it is not there, then click install, select protocol, now
    select NWLink IPX/SPX/....
    - it should now show in the list of available protocols

    2. Now you will set up the IPX protocol
    - Select the NWLink IPX/SPX/... (in the window)
    - Click on properties
    - The first box is Internal Network Number - this must be
    DIFFERENT for each PC. I just added a 1, on the end
    for the first PC, then a 2 for the second, etc
    - Now go down to Frame Type. I set this to Ethernet II
    on ALL PCs
    - Set the Network Number to all 0's on ALL PCs, this one
    must be the same for ALL
    - Click ok, close it up, and then start TS

    3. Recommendations without verification
    - Don't have TS open when you do these settings, boot it
    up averwards

    Here's the website is used to figure this out - seamed a little


    Good luck
