I broke out an old favorite game. It uses the ipx protocol for its lan
gaming. If I understand, XP does not use ipx, right? Is it something that
is easily enabled in xp? I have yet to try to change anything as my network
is fine. I dont want to mess it up just for one game if its a long stretch
in trying to do so.

thanks group,
sl

SL,

IPX is supported by Windows XP. Please see the following article on how to
setup IPX:
