Game Hosting on internet

  John-240258 12:40 10 Apr 2003

I connect to the net using a PC and an ADSL connection.
Another PC is networked to this first PC and used as a games PC. It can play internet based games but is unable to host.
It appears that the problem is that its internal IP and external IP are differant.
The games machine runs Windows XP.
Any Suggestions welcomed?

John, to my understanding the main PC that runs the ADSL connection would have to be the host. I'm not 100% sure on this topic but there are many experts in this forum.
I think it is due to the fact that the 2nd 'Games' computer will have a dummy IP address and therefor is not registered with your ISP.
