IPX Help

Postby DOSBOXER101 » 2015-12-12 @ 22:48

Hi
I have two chromebooks, both with ubuntu on it. When I try to play multiplayer games, the ipx won't work.
I did:
Computer 1:
Z:\> ipxnet startserver 2000
IPX Tunneling System utility for DosBox

IPX Tunneling Server started
Z:\>C:

Computer 2:
Z:\> ipxnet connect 123.456.7.89 2000

And it says it fails. What do I do?

Thanks

What OS does comp 2 have on it? You might have to download some IPX shit for it.

Also, did you forward port 2000?

1. The Second Computer has Chrome OS with XFCE4 on it, and the first Computer has Chrome OS and KDE. Could the OS be the problem?
2. I did the IP of Computer 1 on Computer 2.

The OS's should be fine. As the last person queried, are both computers on the same LAN? If they are, I'll also repeat my second question: Is port 2000 open? You can check by google searching "port open test".
