    ...why exactly are people telling you to find your own IP is beyond me - you don't *want* OPL to work within your Home Network, you don't *want* it to work in WAN - you want to connect two devices over LAN, outside of the rest of the network.

    Go to Network Connections.

    Now, find the Ethernet Card you are interested in using for the connection, right-click on it and select Properties. There, you will be able to set up the IP, Default Gateway and Subnet Mask.

    Example Config:
    IP: 192.168.1.100
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
    DNS 1/2: Blank

    *If* an IP confict prompt shows up, change the range to for example 192.168.2.XXX - you want it to be an entirely separate network for security reasons. Now, go to the folder you want to share and right-click on it. Enter the properties:

    Create a share and remember its name, an example name would be "PS2SMB". The Permissions button will take you to an additional menu where you can adjust who can access this Share over Network and with what kind of priviledges. You want Read/Write or Full Access to make use of the Virtual Memory Card function of OPL in the future.

    Next, you connect your PS2 to the Ethernet port and configure OPL on your PS2. In the Settings tab, you set ETH Device to Auto on startup, then you enter Network Settings and input the IP config you previously created. Then, you attach an IP within the same range to your PS2 - in our example, we used 192.168.1.100 as the PC adress, so let's use 192.168.1.101 just for convenience sake.

    Next, input the port (445), the Share Name (PS2SMB from our example) and finally the account (depends on the Priviledges you set). Save the changes, reboot OPL and you're set to go.

    Make sure that the folder you are sharing has two folders inside of it: CD and DVD. You will use them to sort your ISO images.
