Nope, there isn't an command for in UT.

If you running win98 or 95 or nt4.0 you need an extra "proggie" to setup the router traffic and for the Ip translation.

In win2k there is an inbuild sharing feature, but is quite tricky to setup.

The easiest method you an small lan connecting to the internet is to use winroute 4.0 lite or Pro (but the pro version isn't free).
But for making the clients to be able to host games, then you need or a very good NAT build-up, or sereral IP adresses from you'r ISP. The first option is VERY diffilcult to setup without a good knowledge of TCP/IP and routing. Couse when wrongly done, you set you'r lan wide open for hackers and virusses

All clients can play online as they where connected directly to the internet.
I use it myself to for my girlfriend her PC

NAT = Network Adress Table.

This is used when sharing an LAN over one signle IP adress.
The NAT program keep track on the packets sended and recieved by the clients, translate their packets with their internal IP adress, into the external IP adress. and visa versa.
Without NAT you can't share an single IP adress over a lan.

BirddoG, look here and here.

If that doesn't answer your question, try searching the forums, because this question (or something similar) has been discussed before.

Good luck!

One minor correction BS..

NAT stands for Network Address Translator

Also a friend of mine is using WIN98SE ICS and UT detects the server list every time without any configuring!

NAT = Network Address Translation


Just for the record.
