RE: Network play

Everything is all right now, my problem was caused by not routing 255.255.255.255 to my local network. Anyone experiencing the same problem, read this (taken from appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1177 ):
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 ( appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1177 ) for another description of the issue. This is not considered a bug.
