Testgame: DOOM2.
DOSBOX 0.72.
A working LAN network.

Be sure to set ipx=true in dosboxconfig and:


Server side (Screen 1)
ipxnet startserver
ipxnet status will give you the needed info to connect the client.


Client side
ipxnet connect <ip>
In my case the respons from screen 1, so:
ipxnet connect 127.0.0.1


Don't start the game but run setup and choose:
run network/modem/serial game


IPX-Compatible network


Configure at your wishes and select GO



Let the thing search for a connectable game and....

Rock'n'roll time !!

Same goes for Doom.
Man those games are still the gamer's multiplayer heaven in COOP!
