Well I'm not even sure there is actually a bug here. It might be a problem somewhere else in my setup, that's why I'm asking whether somebody managed to make it work with LAN game. Besides I have no comfortable way of actually testing with wine version that would be acceptable for bug report as I use playonlinux and fedora which has heavily patched version of wine so the system wine is probably even less acceptable.
BTW: To be clear, I'm not asking for support with playonlinux here, I'm just asking if someone get it working and how and I'll then try to repeat those steps with my setup.

Did someone manage to get the multiplayer working with wine 1.5.15+? I tried to play it with friend over hamachi but we didn't see each other. We're able to play warcraft 3 over hamachi just fine though.
If anyone managed to get it working could you please post how you did it? thanks.
