are the two computers on the same subnet?
is the router between the computers?
is the router doing NAT?
addresses that begin with 192.168.1.* or 10.0.0.* are "unroutable"
(that is everyone with a lan uses the same sets of addresses so they are
useless for the internet at large)
your router may be able to shunt traffic on port 9097 to your computer
running the server then the client will connect the routers ip.
you can also open a dos shell and type ipconfig to get your machines ip.
hope that helps
