Hello,

First of all, I want to thank you for that really good job.
I also have a question, v0.4.1 is having 'experimental support for point-to-point' how do I enable this feature ?

Linked to this question I have a suggestion: Could it be possible to add a feature that allow us to define, for example in a configuration (ini) file, a list of IP adresses to send UDP packets ?
This way, providing that players add the required UDP port forwarding on theirs NAT routers, we will be able to play over Internet without any VPN.

Anyway this is already a great tool !

The workaround for PPP links is automatically used whenever it detects one is present. To clarify, these are not PPP links created by IPXWrapper itself, but network interfaces created by certain VPN software.

I have no plans to support sending/receiving packets between broadcast domains; there are already many VPN implementations that are inherently superior to anything that could be implemented inside IPXWrapper.

If you want to play between networks, I recommend using software such as Hamachi or similar.

Thank you sooo much for this! it works with Tiberium Sun! on Windows XP, 7 and 8(.1)!!
I've also tested it with OpenVPN (bridged, tap) .. and that worked nicely too!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!

Nothing but a huge THANK YOU for this. Allowed me to play LAN Warcraft 2 with my daughter. Hoisting a tankard in your honor.
