    i am running 2 pc's on a ics (link to each other)pc's.

    i have just made my own host server on the host pc.

    the client pc can play on any other server but not mine.it see's it in the list.but cannot
    conect.ping 0-10

    the host pc sever see's the local area connection conecting when i am running the
    server program.

    i have put the ip number of my modem.

    is it possible for a wired network or not.

    thankyou

    What is your Network Connection TCP/IP settings, both PCs? What is your modem (DSL, Cable, etc)?

    If you're using DHCP (automatic IP assignment), you may have to change to Static IPs. But this option may be a problem if your modem acts at your DHCP Server.

    1. [Start] menu
    2. Control Panel
    3. Network Connections
    4. Right-click the connection
    5. Find and select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    6. Click [Properties]
    7. Select radio-button for Use the following IP Address
    8. Set both IP Address & Subnet Mask (see below for info)
    9. [OK] out and close the Network Connections window

    IP Address:

    CAUTION: When entering IP addresses, if you type 3-digits it will automatically jump to the next section, but if you type less than 3-digits (like 10) you must type a period (.) to jump to the next section.

    On both machines must use the same "base" (my term).
    • 192.200.10.n = example template, "base" = 192.200.10.
    • Example PC#1 - 192.200.10.10
    • Example PC#2 - 192.200.10.20
    FYI: Strictly speaking, the "base" can be other than the 3 first octets, i.e. a "base" may be 192.200.n.n, but in your case this is not necessary.

    Subnet Mask:
    After entering the IP Address, key [Tab] and you'll jump to the Subnet Mask field and it will automatically be set to 255.255.255.0, leave this as is in your case.

    Now [OK] out and close Network Connections.

    For the future, if you intend to connect to the world (not just PC-to-PC) via an ISP, they will have their own standards. They may not allow Static IP assignments or charge you more for this feature, and even then they will tell you what your "base" + range, or entire-IP/system has to be.
