I think I asked this before like 4 years ago but I can't remember.

2 PCs, Same game, One network.


So how do I get around this?

Can I do so without a proxy?

is there a good FREE one?



:thumbsup:

I hope it doesn't come down to the 3rd one.

Are you trying to run the game off the same disc between two different computers?

Can you be a bit more specific in your question?

We'll I found out that my problem was that my roommate has AVG on his computer. This one has avast.

AVG was stopping the game from connecting. I thought I wasn't the server didn't like seeing the same address twice.

But this would still be a good question just in case they do decide to start blocking multiple connections from the same IP again:

Is there a good free way to get around this?

I used to run a proxy in the old days. (They just brought the server back after 3 years of being shut down)
