Follow these steps to get traditional TCP/IP multiplayer working:
1. Install directplay dlls as described here.
1.1 Manual install is also possible. Steps are:
2. Remove DPWSOCKX.DLL from the core game folder (where the .exe files are located).
This workaround was suggested and is described in detail in the comment to a related bug report.
