I have 3 OS and I can connect through all.  The 24online client works well for win98SE as well as winXP.  You have to configure your network properly in *all* the OS.

The 24online server identifies your machine with 3 things : IP, MAC-ADDR & and authentication string based on your password.

For linux.  I had to do a tiny hack to the linc code.  It was about the length of one of the message fields.  After recompilaton it worked fine.  The instruction which come with linc are important.
