    Hi, I'm trying to play Half Life multiplayer on an XO machine and a Win 98 machine. When I use the XP one as the servger, the 98 machine can see the other game but fails after trying to join it four times.

    The same happens when the 98 mahcine is the server.

    I have teh NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBios Compatible Transport Protocal on the XP machine and IPX on the 98 box, so what gives?

    Files transfer effortlessly betwen the two machine.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Try using DXDIAG to see if the problem is with DirectX versions on the two machines. There are a ton of tests in this tool including testing directX network connections
