Default networking 101

I've got a local network and I can't determine what the IP and port address's are on either networked computer. Without this info I can't launch the network game. Any help would be great! Thanks

If you're on a windows machine, get your dos window / command prompt up and type ipconfig on each machine...it'll show you the addresses they are using. Not sure about the port numbers.

Good, glad to help. On further thought, port numbers are determined by the programmer of the game...You need him/them to supply that info.

I believe the port number is arbitrary, but needs to be set to the same number on both computers. In general, don't bother to change the default.

Got it! It works by using (default) "80" on both port address's. Thanks again Strider and Pvk. Network play adds a whole new dimension to 101.

Ya, playing 101 multi-player can be quite neat! If you thought fighting the AI was scary...

Actually, the default multi-player port set by 101 is 4242.
