So I'm trying to get back to GPL, and I got it running properly. Next step is online races, and that's where I have run into a problem. If I start igor, I can see online servers, and I can click connect to the green ones. But when GPL starts and gets to multiplayer screen, I can see in the background that it's using the wrong network interface. I have multiple interfaces (actual network card, vpn, vmware), and I'm using windows 10. I tried to go to advanced network setting and set my real network card as the top interface, but when I reopen it I always see the vpn interface as the top one, Even when I disable it. Is there any way to force GPL to use a certain network interface?

Sorry, syd, I cannot advise on a solution but at least I'd like to say welcome back to the wars.  :)

I don't understand network interfaces, but how exactly is this a problem?  You don't describe whether GPL runs online or is it just that it uses a less efficient interface?

It uses vmware or vpn interfaces, and those don't have internet access, so I only get a timeout on the multiplayer screen. I can do it manually, write down the ip address of the server on igor, then start gpl, go to mp and manually enter it, That works, but I was hoping for a easier way to connect.
