uhmmm what game are we talking about here??
What kind of Operating System do you have? what windows?
what kind of Connection do you have?

well if i knew that i could tell you more... right now i would say... Firewall
one of you has a firewall and that is why you cant play... but that is just now... give me some more info and ill try and help you further.

JKII multiplayer - any of them (CTF, duel, etc)
win2k, PIII 1000, 128MB, ge-force2(elsa gladiac i think)
i have a server through which i connect the internet (4 comps in the house)+hub (getting a switch soon) and yes, there's a firewall on the serv as on this system, but my friend does not have one, which doesnt make sense - why cant i join HIS game then? you see what I mean? and yes, the game works fine with MP games - its just his serv i cant seem to get.
can you tell me step by step how to start a session - so i'll know i did it right

hmmmm... uhm.. dont realy own JKII..... and i dont play that much online games (soon with SWGalaxies i will :)) and from the looks of it it should work alright. now im not that a network wizard..

have you tried to take your own firewall down?
has your friend a good comp? i mean with everything right installed and good comp and OS and all that?

i dont know the step by step way... Have you tried asking this on the JKII forums? and if you cant work it out... i suggest go to a computer store... 9 out of the 10 times they know what to do.... most of them are game fanatics :D so...

i know im not that great a help as you expected.. but i hope you will resolve the problem.. good luck

are u kidding? most store owners here are jack-@sses and have LESS tech. background then I do! (i know how to config systems from hard work - exp=skill :joy: )
anywayz, the game isnt selling in most stores here( small country Israel is, yeees) - since the head importer didnt take the game only few independent stores import it (stupid stupid head-artzi!@$$@@)
10x 4 ur time anyway m8
get JKII - great game
