There are no such things. What has to happen is for a group of people to meet here and agree on a date/time to meet online and test out the XAR2 multiplayer. I have never gotten even one person to meet me online.

I expect that routers and firewalls will give the multiplayer code some trouble, but I have a solution that is very easy for people who are not networking-skilled enough to handle port forwarding settings: Hamachi

Everyone installs the free Hamachi client software. One person volunteers to create a "network". Everyone else who wants to play joins the new network. Then everyone connects through the game interface as if they were on a LAN. This works really well and is free. I am already providing a Hamachi network for another sim. I could just as easily do so for XAR 2 if people will actually use it.
