Playing Lan games online.

Arrrr! welcome matey's!

As an retired pirate, i have been playing loads of old games over LAN, Games like battlefield-vietnam, Joint Operations, Silent Hunter, ghostrecon and the rainbow six series..

Unfortunatly, not all games worked initially with hamachi so i went and find out about why some games work, and some dont.

After sailing the seven sea's of VPN, this pirate returned and started "Recepies from Hell's Kitchen" a Blog that informs you about the easiest way to play lan-games online, and what games are supported.



Virtual private networking.
Today, with VPN (Virtual Private Networking) you can setup your own LAN over the internet. But as you probably know, Some games are picky when it comes to LAN.

Lets take Hamachi as an example.

Like many vpn tools Hamachi peers usually do not have the same class C ips.
This means that the IPs must match the first 3 octets.
(5.444.111).333 You
(5.444.222).222 Peer

Since hamachi is serving you an ip-adress, its very rare that all your friends have the same class c ipadress.
Another downside of Hamachi is that the free version has some limitations like : small number of participants in a network, networks can become 'full' and need administrative tasks and above all, Hamachi has slow relaying.

Ofcourse, there are alternatives to Hamachi. for example :"Garena, Leaf, Wippien, openvpn and n2n. While some of the names sound familiar, the last one is quite new and unknown.

n2n is a layer-two peer-to-peer virtual private network developed by the guys at NTOP.org
N2n is a real basic VPN tool. It's only task is to create a VPN, nothing more.
N2N needs a 'Supernode' to connect to. At this time, there are 2 public supernodes available - but you could setup your own.


EPC gaming preconfigured client

When it comes to information about playing pirated games online, my main source was epc-gaming.com . And to give something back, created these guide/tools for people who want to play lan-games online. i provide you a free preconfigured set of windows tools.
A custom compiled n2n and the n2ngui from vpnhosting.cz

The tool is very simple and straightforward to use.
Install, start and your VPN is ready.

Download the VPN Client here :

Once installed, start the client and start your game.
Choose Multiplayer - LAN, and start hosting/playing.
