Yes, somehow this topic has been split.
My original message is here:
I use the (modified, I think) dll from the link [1].
I just need to figure out how the clients can see each other in the
ingame lobby.
Thunderbird has figuered it out by using IPX and starting wine as
root. But that seems more complicated than just using a modified dll.

Thanks for your answers, btw!

Best regards
Christoph Korn
