are the machines using static IP addressing? If so, create a multiplayer game on the faster computer (less chance of lag while playing) and when the game has loaded and you're waiting for other people to join, go to the 2nd computer and type in at console "/connect 192.168.0.1" (if 192.168.0.1 is the server of course :))

good luck!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
