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?
