I''ve got an application which allows 2 users to share the same VR environment, using DirectPlay. All this works fine using IPX, TCP and modem. However, both PC''s have an ISDN card installed. I can get one to ring the other and they connect fine and everything work okay. However, the ISDN cards only connect at 64K. Is there anything I can do to get them to connect at 128K (ie. bond the 2 channels?) I know this is possible using the multilink in dialup adapter. However, this is only relevant to dialup internet connections with ISP''s that support it. All I want to do is connect 2 PC''s on either end of an ISDN line at 128K with dialing up a service provider (sorry if this makes no sense!) Any help on this would be much appreciated! I have another (related) question, but I''ll post that seperately! Thanks, Taz. --------------------------------- Tarique Naseem Technical Director Maelstrom Virtual Productions Ltd. http://www.maelstrom.com

Umm... I know what you mean, but I don''t know what you''re asking.

Why can''t you use the dialup multilink, then run the program?

Once dialed up to each other, just select a common protocol for each pc and run the dplay program.

Is this what you were looking for?

Just read my post above and some of the text doesn''t make sense. Sorry

What you''ve suggested is basically what I''m after. However, I did try the dialup multilink between the 2 PC''s but couldn''t get them to connect.

I''ll try it again and see.
