View Full Version : LAN emulation through the internet?

Is there software that will emulate a LAN (i.e. make your computer think you're connected to another computer through a network card)?

I'd like to play some multiplayer games with a friend and nowdays most games don't support the old modem connection option. I suppose we could use the gaming servers but I'm just wondering if something is out there which does emulate a LAN.

Kali comes to mind but from memory that still uses servers.

start>settings>control panel>addremove programs>windows setup tab> comunications and check to install virtual private networking...you may need windows cd.
