BF 1942 MP Demo Server

Electronic Arts sends along the Win32 dedicated server for the multiplayer demo of Battlefield 1942, the 3D vehicular action game that is nearing completion at Digital Illusions. The 21.5 MB download is distributed in advance of the demo so that prospective server administrators can prepare in time. The actual demo itself will feature the Wake Island multiplayer map and is slated for release tomorrow at 6:00 PM EDT (3:00 PM PDT). Update: The demo release time has been advanced to 3:00 PM EDT (noon PDT).

34. Big Question about LAN play Aug 16, 2002, 11:08 richcz3
I didn't think about it till now, but the official site does not mention LAN play. Only online play.
The site also has this little discalimer.

*Online gameplay website for Battlefield 1942™ will be available only through September 4, 2003 subject to online Terms of Service and all features may not be available at the time of purchase.

So, are we stuck having to play multiplay online? Worse yet, having to possibly play after Sept 2003????
Does anyone know the real details concerning playing over a LAN.
