Well not directly to the person. ;)

OK, joke aside. Should be possible if you have the other person's IP. In this case open up the Server Browser, right-click within the Browser window, select Open Location (or Open Address, can't remember off-hand) and type in the IP. That's it (should be it).

You hit the tilde key to open your comand line console then type in open xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

x= computer ip you are connecting 2.

I tried both methods and no luck. Tied also to see if it mattered whether we were set to local or net war using tilde key...still no connection. It says it's connecting but nothing happens. I just go into "standoff mode".

Am I missing something here????

Be gentle with your responces! :)

I have cable...hehehehehe

If I click on the individual servers I can see and connect to their games...no problem!

Just can't seem to negotiate a direct connect.

oh well.....

Thanks guys/gals.

Happy hunting!

is it possible the server you're trying to connect using a firewall such as ZoneAlarm? if thats the case, he'll have lower his setting to medium and I believe allow Infiltration.exe to act as a server

We both use "End it All" and only leave MSN Messenger, Explorer and Systray running. We both have @home and can talk with MSN Messenger while playing UT against each other....lots of fun!

Thanks for the reply....when we figure it out we'll let you know!
