Here's a question...

Is there a way to create a virtual LAN between two computers not on the same LAN? Here's the scenario:

I am at my house on a wired and wireless network and my cousin is on a wired/wireless network at his house about 30 minutes away (I know that changes nothing, just didn't want people to say "run a cable between houses!). We're looking to play a game online, but the games we bought on eBay have pre-used serial numbers.

So again, is there a way to create a virtual LAN between two computers not on the same LAN?

Thanks!

Hi mistaWAC, this is the program you want. Ypu will both need to download it but it acts like a lan and you can invite other players to join.

I have that. I never knew that if I created a LAN and used XFire to invite that it would work that way. How do I go about doing this?

By the way, the game is Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.
