Only ways that worked for me back in the day 2000(zone days):
1. Need to have a switch with two unique ips
2  two separate modems (which would really be the same as two ips)


Maybe there’s some VPN workaround now.

Yes.

You can do it. You just need each computer to use different game ports. The default is 6112. The war2combat installer allows you to change to a different port number, or you can just change it in the windows registry.

under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net\Configuration

there is a key called "Game Data Port" (or if it isn't there, just create it).

It will be 000017e0 by default (6112 in HEX) Just change it to a different number >=1024 easy to just change the '0' on the end to another hex digit...  0->9 or a->f

If you both want to host you will have to set up 2 router rules mapping each port number to each computer's local ip address.

BTW the need to route ('open') all ports from 6112 to 6119 is a misnomer that has been around for many years, you only need to route your game port (6112 or whatever)
