The original Red Alert 2 did not support networked multiplayer over TCP/IP and instead used IPX.

Does the current RA2 offering on EA's Origin the as part "C&C The Ultimate Collection" support network gaming over TCP/IP and WAN?

There is a remastered version of C&C in the works which is not related to this question.

  • Considering the digital version of RA2 hardly works due to its DRM kicking in, I highly doubt EA actually put in any kind of effort when re-releasing it.

  • @Levon Basically, you buy the game on Origin, and then apply the CnCNet installer, which patches it to switch it from IPX to TCP. And the remaster is unrelated to RA2 altogether since it only contains the first two games.
