    I know that a couple of services exist to allow this but a friend ( the mastermind!) and I had a couple of system link games over the internet yesterday via a couple of linux boxes, and openvpn. It was set up to support ethernet bridging. We tried halo, ( three players on one side and 2 on the other) response was great with lags only occuring a couple of times, Then we tried PGR2 it also worked very well... looking for a relatively inexpense "xbox live lite" this is it [​IMG]

    Oh man, I love those. Spent 10 hours straight once playing Halo online. From 10:00PM till 8:00AM. Yeah, I know. I need a life.

    Rob,

    can you select whom you play with. ie is it easy to find your friends? (as simple as knowing their machine name?) THe openvpn method is nice because you can hook up with a specific person and not worry about server loads...
