Listening in with ProcessMonitor while in TCP/IP lobby shows many ports being accessed, and it looks like each is unique (granted, I didn't wait long). Just from looking through the games menu it sounds like you shouldn't need to insert ports, just an ip address or game name (to play on lan of course). Never tried it myself but perhaps it rolls through a list of ports or has some algorithm until it finds another player. IPX and modem have been abandoned (well, you could still use them if you had the network equipment and protocols), and heat went defenct in 2000, which pretty much leaves TCP/IP which will let you play on lan. The only way you might get an online game going (if that's what you meant), is if you found a service like xlink kai for pc. Xlink kai is a program you run on your pc to create a virtual lan with other kai users in order to play lan mode on xbox games. I'm not aware of such a program intended to be used with pc games, doesn't mean its not out there. You might even be able to use xlink kai if two people joined the same arena. Can't exactly remember how kai works. Been forever.
