Sounds like you are trying to run unreal from one of the masqed machines? Take
a look at the IP Masq HOWTO. There are modules you can install that will allow
you to play online games from masqed machines. You can get the HOWTO from
www.linux.org (among many other places). Click on the support button. Hopes
this helps. Email me if you need more help.
