Hi, I''m working on a simple application that uses DPlay7 for network connection. My question is: when the players searches for available sessions (using TCP/IP), will he be able to find sessions all over the internet or only on his local network ? Supposing that the search occurs only on the local network, what would be the best method to search the internet for available sessions ? -- bsJeff

it only searches the local network. The way to search for games on the internet is to use a centralised server that keeps track of all games hosted. Like HL does with WON.

You could ping every possible IP to find a game, but this is hardly efficent
