I managed to play a Warcraft I game with DosBox with IPX through the Internet but the game is slow.

I tried on LAN and the speed is enough fast, but the speed is lowered when the computers are distant.

Can we increase the performance of the IPX ? Should I increase the cycles ? (They are set to 30000 for a good balance of the game)

Have you bothered to ping his IP address, to see what the turnaround time is? if you get a ping >200ms anything that has real time game play is going to suck.
