    How do i set up red alert 2 so that i can play multiplayer games with my brother?

    I have installed the IPX protocol on both computers (mine - XP, brother's - 2k).
    Bath have a network number 00000000 and both have the frame type set to auto. I think this is right.

    Can someone tell me if this is right and what i now need to do in RA2.

    Thanx

    If both computers recognize one another then you should be set. I think the option for LAN play is under multiplayer, and it should be straight foward. One computer will host, and the other should detect the game if they recognize one another. If not, then you'll have to get that working.

    If you had to install the patch for Windows XP, the LAN function would be disabled.
