I am trying to Connect my comp and my friend's comp directly using a high-speed parallel connection.

How is this accomplished? Thanks.

Have you setup a direct cable connection? Go to START-ACCESSORIES-Direct cable connection (i think it's there!).

Once the connection is established you'll need to find the IP of each computer by running the winipcfg.exe programe.

Once you have the IP you should be able to enter it into XWA somewhere and connect. I havem't tried it but i hope this help even a little!
