  1. Hello Tom, I would suggest posting over in the network forums. They may have more info and support for you than here.

    Basically you will need to make sure it has open ports for certain games, and other small technical details. Also, a IP address for that computer is essential for others to find the system. It can be very simple to set up, to some-what complicated.

    Good luck in your efforts!
