Possible to network computers over the internet?

Postby Aibohphobia » Sat Jun 01, 2002 9:25 pm

Is it possible to network two computers over the internet in Windows 98 and Windows XP? Was wondering, since I have some games that run only through LAN.. I heard it was possible through XP, but I don't know if this is the same thing..

You would be looking into Virtual Private Networking (VPN) the computers together to create a LAN between external computers.
A few friends of mine have managed to create one using Windows boxes. A friend of mine and I are going to be getting it work between Linux boxes soon. Just have to get a test box up and running...

Anybody know a website on creating my own VPN server? All I can find is configuring VPN clients, nothing on servers..

Its not really about making a server. Its about connecting nodes.
