...but back in our no money days, we created "poor-man routers" by installing
several NIC's into a single workstation and directing traffic through them via
routing tables. Granted, the subnets were different (hence the need of the
router). I wonder how running 2 versions of the game on a single "routing"
server would work. You would need separate Hardware profiles on the
workstations to direct which subnet you logged into, but this seems to be a
small inconvenience. I do not offer this as a solution, simply a suggestion, so
please! no flames. ;0)
What kind of a monster game server do you have that will run 2 different
Half-Life Hosts at the same time with no performance hit?? You rule!
