General Tips

Preparing To Serve a TCP/IP Network Game

  • Find out what the server's IP address is. To do this, the server player types "winipcfg" from the DOS prompt of a Windows 95/98 session or "ipconfig" from the DOS prompt of a Windows NT session.
  • Playing a TCP/IP Network Game

  • One player clicks the "Server" button and tells all other players his computer's IP address. The other players are now ready to connect.
  • All other players click "Client."  Enter your name and the server's IP address in the Network Settings dialog. If you don't connect in a few seconds, something is wrong. Double check the server's IP address.
  • All players must have the same NetSet version.
