IPXWrapper is a wrapper library which emulates IPX support while tunneling the packets over UDP. This allows you to run legacy games and other software that require IPX without having to install the IPX driver which is unavailable as of Windows Vista/Server 2008.

IPXWrapper has been tested and reported to work with the following games:

Atomic Bomberman
Carmageddon II
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
Delta Force 2
Heroes of Might and Magic III
Rising Lands
Rival Realms
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
Street Wars: Constructor Underworld/Mob Rule
Theme Hospital
Warcraft II
War Wind
War Wind II: Human Onslaught

Or IPXnet from DOSbox

The CGA Dedicated Server is an IPX and serial relay server as well as audio chat capabilities. It runs as a Windows service or a Linux daemon. If you have not already done so, click here to download and install the server.


Multiple servers can be configured to run at the same time.
Maximum number of connections can be configred per server. (Combined limit of 512)
Each server is queried by the CGA website so yourself and other players can use it when it is online.
Each server establishes "virtual" networks for each game or group of players using the same network ID passed to it. This allows for a large number of simultaneous connections and games on one server since the network packets for each game are only sent to the players in their respective networks.
Each server can be configured as an IPX or serial relay server.
Audio chat servers (up to 10) can be configured for use by the virtual game servers. Audio chat integrated using the TeamSpeak 3 SDK.

Click here to learn more about configuring your own dedicated servers.

Teamspeak is suboptimal, proprietary, and closed source. Instead try free Open Source:

sip calling, video, texting
jingle calling

f/oss client Jitsi (cross-platform: windows, linux, osx, android, and more)

for everything else there's CUSAX


sms texting is for chumps or affluent dullards. abandon it = huge monthly savings.
