Yes you can... it won't matter much though... there will still be major lag issues.
1. Click multiplayer
2. In top right corner click remote
3. Enter the IP
4. Join and have some small scale battle fun http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Lag is very dependent upon the network conditions.
We currently host one game on a ADSL service with 5 joiners all on the same ISP and all within the same city, and a mixture of cable / 56K modem connection -performance is great.
However if conditions change such as using different ISPs or international connected players things can change and lag will be more apparent.
Point is you need to check you network performance before pointing the finger at the game, and saying lag will occur.
this is true, i have a 56k and have hosted 4-6 ppl with no problem depending mostly on their net upload rate, i have seen people with cable with worse net connections than a good 56k, but they assume because they have cable its fast. I always use the p key in game to check.
Two / three months with the game and I didn't know about the "p" key..... I'll check that one out tonight.
I kept using netmonitor to see what was happening. This might help free a little more resource.

There's a guy named AnalogX who has put out a couple of small free software gems, one of them is NetStat Live, which display bandwidth usage etc. -- it's much more useful than NetMonitor:
