My friends and I would like to race each other online. How do we go about doing this? I have my own website and would like to do it thru that but am not sure what all I need. Please let me know if I need to buy a program or if a website will host a racing game between me and my friends only.

Thank You in advance.

Since your on the net, you can do it easily...what game do you have? What you will have to do is run the server for that game(located under the start menu by the game hopefully). Then click your start button and click the run option....type winipcfg and it will run a small program. Look at your IP number....you tell your friend what it is and then they will go under the multiplayer option and enter it as the server they want to connect to. This will enable them to connect directly to you.

I hope this is clear enough and helps.
