RA2 Connect to Internet

Is there a way to get Red Alert 2 to connect though a proxy server or not? I dont have a modem in my gaming PC, it is on my Win2000 server.

I am using it with Internet Connection Sharing and Win ME. At first it didn't work, so I mailed Westwood, they gave me the solution, I had to use a couple of ports with a programme. Here's the reply I got :

"Internet Connection Sharing is not supported while playing games online.
Microsoft suggests disabling ICS if you are going to be playing online
games. It is possible, however, to manually configure ICS to get the game
to connect.

If you have Internet Connection Sharing enabled, you will need to enable
ports 1234 and 1140 on your host machine as well. ICS is a feature
installed on some Windows 98 networks sharing a single computer's Internet
connection across multiple machines. If this doesn't work...

The following steps may not work on all machines, and should only be tried
if you are "network-savvy". Also these steps are merely a suggestion to try
and help get around ICS. We may be adding support for ICS in a future
patch, still to be determined.

Go to the following link and download the ICSconfig program:

Start the ICSconfig and click on the GET button, then click the PORTS tab,
and then click NEW MAP.

Name: RA2

then add the following ports:

Port ID Port Translation Type
0000 5400 NORMAL TCP
0001 5400 NORMAL TCP
0002 1234-1237 NORMAL UDP
0003 1234-1237 NORMAL UDP
0004 1234-1237 NORMAL TCP
0005 1234-1237 NORMAL TCP
0006 5400 NORMAL UDP
0007 5400 NORMAL UDP
0008 1140 NORMAL UDP
0009 1140 NORMAL TCP
0010 7000 NORMAL TCP
0011 4005 NORMAL TCP
0012 3840 NORMAL TCP
0013 4808 NORMAL TCP
0014 4810 NORMAL TCP

If you have any problems you could try this, but I don't think it works in Win NT....
