i have been following through the tutorials for DirectPlay on the msdn site, and have sucessfully created, initialised and hosted a DirectPlay session (i think). I then came to the third tutorial which shows you how to enumerate host sessions and display them. I decided to skip this one becuase all i want to do it connect to a host by typing in the ip address. So i went on to the 4th tutorial which shows you how to connect to a host, and here is where i am confused... i don't see anywhere where ip addressess fit in to the connection process, how do i tell my game to 'connect to a host on this ip address' ??

This example hides DP8 and DP8Voice in a single package with a pair of controlling and notification interfaces. Just plug & play. You specify the machine name (or IP address) along with the port for the connecting computer and the port number for the host.
