Hi all!

Ok, I have a few games that have network capabiltys, but, on a few of them, it says I have to have IPX.

Can some one please Explain this to me, and whether I can use this on my network, as I have a Linksys router, and I?m using TCP/IP protocols.

Thanks all!

IPX is part of the networking setup - found in the control panel. Exactly how you add it in depends on which version of windows you are using - but if you look in the help files, it'll tell you how.

well, i'm running Xp on both my machines, But will i have to set all the machines up to IPX, or does the OS use what ever protocol it needs for the job? So, Us TCP/IP most the time, then swicth to IPX when i try to play the games the require IPX?

You can have more than one protocol installed - so I presume the game will use the one it wants. I would expect you to have to install it on both systems, if what you mean is you're playing the game between them. If it's not on both systems, how would they talk to each other?

Thanks Anyway DieSse

Wow, i think we posted are messages withing seconds of each other, but yeah, i expected to have to install it on all the machines that i was going to play the game with!

Thanks again!
