  1. So, I am trying to connect 2 computers to the LAN menu for RA1. They are both ethernet wired into the same router. I open the LAN server and menu on one and the other attempts to connect. It never connects however, and just gets stuck in a cycle of Connecting.... and No Response from Server. I have tried hosting on both computers but with no success. Can someone explain how this is supposed to work? The IP address that the connecting computer tries to connect to is correct, except it adds a :6667 onto the end of the IP. That's the only odd thing that I see. Or Is there a way to get the in-game LAN menu to work? I noticed that this version doesn't allow you to enter the in-game menu even though the directory includes the LAN patch. Thanks, Von
  2. I had all three computers hooked up to the same router using ethernet cables. I have the LAN server running as administrator so it should be fine. The only reason I would prefer the LAN is that my internet access is spotty sometimes and I would like to have the option of just using a Local Network.
  3. Hi all, Me and my cousin Superdude have been playing Red Alert 1 on CnCnet since Beta days and we have loved having access to the game with so many features. However, we just got the new updated version recently and it seems that the way to play over local area network has changed. It used to just take you to a LAN menu identical to the online menu and you would just join in and go. Now it says I need to set up a server. However, if I set up the server on my main PC and try to connect with another one, It just says "connecting to...", "can't connect to the IP address" over and over. So my question is, where can I change the IP settings for LAN and how do I get this thing to connect? Any help would be super greatly appreciated. VonEsling
