Whenever I try to play online it states that I must have windows 95 to play. I am running it on Vista. How do I get around this to play online?

haha, that TEN thing on the menu is probably not working today(i wouldn't know, i never could get it working back in those days)
If you want to have some MP fun, maybe you could mount up DOSBox with IPX support, then host a local game with friends.
Also, i could be wrong about your issue, exactly what did you try to do?
Someone posted in another thread that they were playing online the other day and I can't get it to work.
Then they must've set that IPX tunneling, since TEN is quite dead these days.
If you're really into it, you need to have some basic idea of how to work with the xp/vista console, since you will be starting everything manually. First of all look for the dosbox.conf file wherever Dbox is installed, then look for a line that reads
IPX=false
change that to
IPX=true
You should start dosbox, then mount the drive you have Duke3d installed in with:
mount (drive letter) (location where duke is installed)
so, for a duke installation in drive D under a folder called Duke3d that line should read something like this
mount c d:\duke3d
note the backslash there, folders are named like that. After mounting, you need to switch to your recently created virtual drive, so put c: and hit enter, if you did mount it in C that is :P
then you should start ipx simply by typing:
ipxnet startserver
that should give you a working ipx tunneling started message.
In order to get your friends to play with you, you need them to connect to your IPX "server", they should do all that we did right here, but type
ipxnet connect [your ip]
then it's only a matter of setting up a net game from the setup, in the "network game" option.
I hope you can pull this off, let me know how it went!
I attempted it, but it states that 'ipxnet startserver' is and illegal command

That happens when your ipx networking is disabled. You need to change the "ipx=false" to "ipx=true" (under [ipx]) in the DOSBox .conf files.
It still won't work for some reason, still states it is an illegal command.
type ipx=true inside dosbox.
Hello
I will check it in the morning at work but you should have Duken Nukem 3D\Network\Host and Client programs in the Menu Start that fixes IPC for you. Clients will needs to input IP of HOST and everything should work.
Online? What's online? You mean phone-line? Heheh, I remember back in the day loading up duke nukem, dialing up my friends computer, connecting over the phone line on a 9600 baud modem and playing.
of course we'd have to call each other first and get our games ready and all. Man those were the days...
I FINALLY got it to work, thanks everyone for the help!

Checked:
Please go to Menu Start\Duke Nukem 3d\Network\Start HOST game
HOST then gives his IP number to other players
Other players needs to choose Menu Start\Duke Nukem 3d\Network\Start CLIENT game
then you should write in DosBox window CONNECT hoist.ip.number.here
this open IPX tuneling and connects all the players, also all of the players needs to choose this same no of players for game.
