DOSBox vs GIT query...

Postby andrewwan1980 » Sat Nov 25, 2006 6:23 pm

I notice DOSBox.conf file has a

[ipx]
# ipx -- Enable ipx over UDP/IP emulation.

ipx=true

setting. Does this emulate a fake IPX protocol, or does it really let users play DOSBox games network over the internet? For example, am wanting to play:

- Syndicate Wars
- Blood
- Carmageddon
- Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn

which are all old DOS games and multiplayer was IPX LAN based only. If we used http://www.morpheussoftware.net/git/ Gamer's Internet Tunnel combined with DOSBox, would that work? Or will GIT not pick up the emulated IPX packets?

GIT would pick up the IPX packets most likely. I don't know how DosBox works and what kind of packets it really generates, but you likely don't need any special settings in DosBox if the network traffic it generates makes it out onto your physical network already.

DOSBox is a emulator for old DOS games that can't run in Windows. The IPX for DOSBox works great on IP. It will not work for windows based programs.
