About Kahn
Kahn is a network driver that allows people to play games on the Internet that are normally limited to local networks. Kahn sets up a virtual IPX network that emulates local networks and allows nearly any IPX-compatible game to be played over it. Each player connects to a Kahn server, and can then chat and play with the other people on the server.

You're probably thinking, "This has already been done, there are plenty of these things out there already," or maybe, "I already have a program like this, why get Kahn?" Simple. Kahn beats the competition. Read on and see what makes Kahn superior to other similar products and online gaming services...
