    I have Doom II and would like to play with someone over the internet (they also have Doom II). I'm not able to for some reason. When I try to connect to the server, it tries to connect but says "connecting to server" forever. I've tried putting myself in the DMZ, disabling all firewalls, etc. and am unsuccessful. Can anybody help me?

    We both have the same OS and are both connected to the internet through a router with DSL...

    He has the most updated version...

    "It's some guys that just made it.. not the original company. The original version won't run on any machine past windows 98..."

    ...Is what my friend told me...

    Doom III isn't out yet... only a preview is. It's set for release July 31st.
