What DOS games have online multiplayer that has held up over the years? I've never actually played anything DOS-based online, but I know DOSBox has Internet functionality for the games that support it. Is there anything that still has a "jump in and see the server list" kind of support, or is everything going to require IP addresses and obscure, forgotten protocols?

"Jump in and see the server list" is more than a little optimistic, don'tcha think? There aren't a lot of people playing DOS games, and those that are have an extremely wide selection to choose from.

Anyway, a bit of Googling suggests people are managing with Hamachi. Looks like Blood, Death Rally, Master of Orion 2, and Z are getting some love.
