Hello, I have a peculiar problem. I am currently trying to setup a connection between my two computers. First i have a Mac Mini (pre-intel), and i have a linux/Windows computer. When i try to play Battle.net if I cannot join games hosted by the comp,(but i think thats my external firewall there). I was trying to setup a LAN connection and it almost worked. When the two computers connected to the LAN I could see the game hosted by the Windows computer (on my mac) but when I went to join the game, it said I was unable then it disappeared . any insight, help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

I want to play it setup so i can have a friend over and play joined games, seeing as we can't host on either computer, nor can we be in the same game with out horrible lag. Its the only way to play the same game with both computers (that i know of)
QUOTE Thanks
