HOW TO PLAY
First decide who will host the game. (you or your friend/opponent) Now the one who is going to host the game must (do the following): 1. run nettoe (Doh) 2. choose the option 3 (Two players over network) from the Main Menu 3. choose the option 1 (Host the Game) from the Network Game Menu 4. type in his name or nickname (NO BLANK SPACES ALLOWED). 5. comunicate the IP address to the other player. ( hostname also works... if resolved, of course) ( I hope you know how to get your IP address...) 6. Just wait for the other player to connect to your host. Now for the other player (the one who is going to connect to the hosted game ): 1. run nettoe (really ?, Yaeh relly.) 2. choose the option 3 (Two players over network) from the Main Menu 3. choose the option 2 (Connect to a host) from the Network Game Menu 4. type your name or nickname (NO BLANK SPACES ALLOWED). 5. type in the IP address of the host or the hostname. IP address examples: 192.168.0.5, ::1 Hostname example : myfriend.hostname.com (must be a valid hostname) 6. Just wait for the game to start . Enjoy. And if you have any problem just let me know.
netToe uses tcp-port 7501 for listening port of the server engine. Thus this port must be transportable across the network, possibly passing routers in the path. For a local game this is of course mostly irrelevant.
