old games using IPX on WINDOWS XP

old games using IPX on WINDOWS XP

I tried to install WarcarftII on o local network with 3 PCs    using Windows XP, but when I try to connect to IPX Network in the WarcraftII menu,e answer is that it can't localize the IPX network.
I have installed IPX protocol in my local network connexion, and it works for instance with a local chat program called IPXlocalchat.
Thanks for help

RE: old games using IPX on WINDOWS XP

just buy warcraft 3 and play that over your tcp ip lan network because warcraft 1, 2, and ipx suck

RE: old games using IPX on WINDOWS XP

Actually, IPX is technicly the better protocol, it was just developed by Novell for Netware and is not as widly used as IP.

The IPX networking in older games does have issues if you don't have a server out on the wire sending out SAPs.  You can try to go into the properties of your IPX protocol on the windows box and specify a frame type and give it an internal IPX number.  Do this on only one of your Windows boxes, this will make it send out SAPs (you will need to have file and print sharing enabled).
