Sdlquake: problems with network

hi there,

i was very happy to see that sdl-quake is running without any problems
without demanding root permissions.

however, i didn’t manage to establish a network connection to another
computer running sdlquake.

i can open a new game on one computer, but if i select ‘join game’ on the other
computer, sdlquake just hangs (no difference, whether i select ‘search for local
games’ or whether i specify the ip-number)

maybe you can give me any clues?

i’m running it on a amd athlon xp 2400 under redhat linux 9.0.

thanks a lot
