I always had the best luck running it as a UDP connection for LAN games.

Also, that second system's processor is below the minimum recommended for XP (233 min/300+ recommended) and it only has half the recommended minimum RAM (64 min/128+ recommended) so it's having to juggle running the OS and the game, not to mention the network traffic coming in from the second machine.

If you can't improve/replace that second rig, you might have to drop to Win95 or Win98 to give the processor some "breathing room."
