You can only play Comanche over NovaWorld and you need a valid Serial Number. There is no place to enter a IP Address already looked.

Been told that there are programs around that will let you play LAN games over the internet. But have not been able to find a program around that will let me do it.

VPN. Set one person up as the server and another as the client. Very simple to do in XP.

Set up server (http://asia.cnet.com/itmanager/netadmin/0,39006400,39050037,00.htm)
Client (http://people.ecsc.co.uk/~matt/documents/vpnXP/vpnXP.html)

That will give your friend a LAN IP address on the servers network, but possibly the speed of your internet connections won't allow you to do much.
