Thread: Multiplayer via cable

    Default Multiplayer via cable

    Hi, information about keeperfx multiplayer is pretty thin on the ground, so you'll have to forgive me for asking:

    I want to play over LAN by network cable. Do I have to take any extra consierations? Do we just connect, launch from a "-sessions XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:5555;XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:5555" shortcut and use TCP/IP, or do I have to forward ports, install protocols, stuff like that?

    Speaking of which, I did try and play by IPX on Windows 7 by using ipxwrapper... it didn't work. I don't know if that's a surprise to any of you, but there you go.

    You have to configure TCP/IP connection like in any other network.
    If there are firewalls, they have to be opened, like for any other game.

    KeeperFX only supports TCP/IP.
