Unreal Tornament 2004 - Playing over a network?

  georgemac 15:47 04 Jul 2004

My son has this game and has been trying to host a game on my PC, and to join this game from his pc over the 2 pc's which are currently networked together with a crossover cable. The network and cable are fine, as I can move files and access the internet through this pc from the other.

However his pc cannot see the server (my pc?) to connect to it.

Not having a clue at all about games - can anyone help?

The pc's will also soon have a 54g wireless connection, but I guess if the problem can be solved just not, it will work on the wireless network too?

Firewalls can and will prevent connections for gaming have you checked this?

ut was an allowed application on both pc's firewall software (sygate) but I will try disabling the firewall and running the games again. Thanks

disabling the firewall worked OK
