In a nutshell, Classic Gaming Arena is a website based portal to link up with friends, family or just other gamers to play DOS based IPX network games over the Internet.
You can run your own dedicated server using the CGA Dedicated Server software.
The dedicated server software communicates with the website so that players can use it when setting up their games. Players will also be able to connect up via a peer-to-peer mechanism since DOSBox has a built-in server as well if they do not want to use a dedicated server. Players are required to create an account and through the website configure their DOSBox and game settings (ie: local paths and CD information if needed). Once that is all setup they will then be able to setup game rooms which will use either a dedicated server or themselves as the server and allow others to join the room and get connected.
