Should I have a real IP to host? Both of my computers have green HP but I still cant host

P. S.
Its crazy but someone connected to me and i dont have real IP!!! So i can host! But if i try to connect from my 2nd computer i see "latency too high". Its so strange.

Someone knows why it happens? How i can join to my game from 2nd computer?

It's possible to play with 2 PC's at the same time as long as each one got a unique port, but you probably can't play together in the same game room though (Some routers support it, some don't). If you want to play together in the same game room then one of you will need to install a VPN.

I just added a IPX -> UDP LAN patch, this way you can have both, a fully functional LAN mode and you will be able to host games without port forwarding in online games.

Not too much testing has been done so far, it works fine for me though. If anyone wants to test, file is attached below.

Note: To play a LAN game, go to Multi Player Game -> Enhanced -> IPX Network.
