Most games don't work well behind a proxy server (ip-masq).

I suspect that this is a DirectPlay game, but I can't be sure about
that. If it's directPlay, give up now, you'll never get it working. If
it's using a decent multiplayer engine, you have a chance. If you're
running this using a modem, I don't have any idea how to do that. If
you're using Network cards to connect to the internet, here's some
ideas. Hook your Linux and Win98 PCs up to a hub, and give the Win98 PC
your internet IP address. Run tcpdump on the interface that's plugged
into the HUB, and watch the packets that go through there as you start
and play a game. That should get you closer to figuring it out. Good
