Fifa 2004 via PS2

Wonder if anybody can help me, attempting to setup fifa 2004 online but get a problem connecting up to Plusnet. I have connected the PS2 to my PC Nic with a crossover cable and setup ICS. The PS2 talks to the PC ok and the DNS test worked correctly but when i try to connect i just get a timeout. If anybody has successfully configured fifa 2004 this way please let me know.
Cheers Wink

After setting up ICS on Windows XP, following EA's instructions, ensuring i had a crossover cable and not the original straight through cable that Sony Provide and setting up the Network Configuration as instructed, i was still having problems. After a fair amount of time and me getting very fustrated it dawned on me that my Firewall (Zone Alarm) was the problem, i switched this off and bingo! all connected,

Sounds a bit dodgy to me - switching off your firewall :!: :?:

Managed to get my PS2 and FIFA working by putting the IP address for the PS2 in the DMZ area of my router with firewall still intact on the PC.
