We don't have direct experience with Quake II played in this manner When you say server and client you are referring to a network of computers in the same place linked together, with NIC(network interface cards) installed and software that lets the server and clients share resources Your profile doesn't appear to have this type of setup We are assuming you are one person with a computer who wants to play Quake II with someone else with a computer in a different location.

What we do know is that there are alot of Quake fans out there on the internet We are assuming your friend and you are both connected to the internet I see that your email is from yahoo You can play Quake II over the internet Go to www.Yahoo.com then click on games Then click on Communities,then click on Quake II there is a multitude of Quake II multiplayer info and devotees Also the manufacturers web site www.idsoftware.com/quake2/ has helpful information.
