    Ok guys, here's the deal

    I'm trying to set up a LAN game of GTA2 against my brother but I am having a hell of a time getting it to work (a.k.a. I can't get it to work :dead: ). My main computer is set as my home network's DMZ so as to avoid having to forward ports to it, and my laptop is set to use a static IP address to which I have forwarded all the ports that I have read are necessary for GTA2. Even with all this I can create a game on either machine but cannot join it from the other.

    Does anyone know how to accomplish this task?

    Thanks and rep points to anyone who has the answer.

    are you trying to connect via local IP address? or public IP? I know its a dumb question.... but sometimes stupid things like that can work. Also, your setup (dmz and such) sounds kinda odd and could cause some problems. albeit insecure too... :p What I would do, is get rid of the DMZ, give all computers in your LAN a Static ip and you shouldnt need to open any ports for Lan play. So I hope that helps, it gives you a few options to try out.
