warcraft 3 lan
I've looked around on the official wine page but I'm not quite understanding exactly what it is I'm supposed to be doing. The problem is that I can't have lan games with other computers. From what I've read it has something to do with the way that linux handles packets or something to that effect.
gforce fx 5500
I believe gs optiplex 260 mobo. it's a dell.
I will continue to search for the answer to my problem elsewhere and will post the solution once I find it. I will be forever grateful to anybody that could show me the solution.
Re: warcraft 3 lan
If you try to play using the Local Area Network option, and do not see a game hosted from your machine on another or vice versa, and you are in the same subnet, this is likely caused by not having a default gateway. The game relies on sending UDP packets to the broadcast address and Linux will not send them unless there is a default gateway or another rule to handle them. To fix it, there are two methods:
Add a default gateway.
- OR -
Route 255. 255. 255. 255 to your local network.
See Wine Traffic #62 for another description of the issue. This is not considered a bug.
This is from the wine web page. I'm not quite sure how you go about doing this.
