Finaly, I got a sollution:

The problem seems to be, that a standalone-computer -even with properly
installed TCP/IP-stack- possibly does not have a IP-Adress(i.e. when
IP-adress is dynamicaly linked during connection, as it should be the
default for PPP). This prevents connection of the XPilotNT-server and
client when offline.

The workaround (if you want to play alone at home):

Install TCP/IP for the Modem-connection and configure it with a
statical IP-number.

or:

Do the same thing for the TCP/IP-->NE2000-binding, if you have a
network-card (even if it isn┤t connected to a net (but it must be
activated)).

Start XpilotNT-Server
Start XPilotNT

The Monitor-program still has it┤s problems, and the performance lacks a
bit compared to LINUX, but as this is still beta....

Maybe you can mention this little hack for al those XPilot-players
having the same problems.


So you're an XPilot Newbie
