    Unhappy Problems connecting peer to peer for gaming over DSL

    can't connect to a friend who is on Bell HSE here in montreal in NFS5. can ping his ip, can send him files using ICQ, but when we try to connect in NFS, the IP that is bound to is the "Autoconfiguration IP address", which is something like 169.254.x.x. when i try to connect to his ip (216.209.x.x) the connection times out.... both using winpoet, me 98se him 2000.... any ideas what's goin on here?
    thanks,
    arfy

    do any of you have a firewall?
    if you do....turn it off......and are you provided with dynamic ips or static ips?

    Hey arfy,

    I was up in Montreal over Easter. Went to Extreme and 727. Good fun.

    Anyhow, have you tried playing this game with anyone else? How does the game communicate, ie: Server&lt;&gt;Client, or Client&lt;&gt;Client..? And, is it TCP/IP compatible, or does it emulate IPX over TCP/IP and need an interface like KALI?

    I hate network gaming and all the problems finding and logging onto servers, so I'm glad that all the FPS that I love are on Gamespy.
