Accordign to the Red Alert HOWTO, you need to be running as root for
IPX to work...
This might be a bad idea, since it enables bugs in Wine (not very
likely, but not impossible) / Windows malware to destroy all data on
Some info: (I presume that most games uses the UDP equivalent in IPX,
which would probably require a listening socket)
