Do these games require the IPX/SPX protocol to run? to add this protocol:

1. open up control panel
2. open up network connections
3. do a properties on your lan connection
4. click on install
5. select protocol
6. find the ipx/spx protocol or similar name may be slightly different on different OS's
7. click ok then you may have to reboot

make sure all machines wanting to play this game have that protocol installed.
