My friend and I were trying to play this over a local lan that had no access to the internet. Both machines were windows 7. Their is no IPX support in Win7 (since vista) and this is the only way i see this game works over local lan...

any tricks...?

I think creating a server would be fine. Then your friend should connect to your network IP via the 'Direct connect' button. You won't need IPX

When i click network button nothing happens. When i click internet button an error comes up saying not connected to the internet.

If I remember right, RA2 uses IPX for local play, and I think this is the problem.
