As far as I can see: runs normally with Player1 External.

run gnubg.
edit evaluation settings, match equity table to suit you.
command: external

run second instance of gnubg.
edit evaluation settings, match equity table to suit you.
Settings / Players / player0 : gnubackgammon
Settings / Players / player1 : check external, enter 127.0.01:4000

After 17 seconds (on my PC) the second instance of gnubg gets focus.
Start a New Session or Match on that second instance.
Player0: playing / cubing with settings of Player0 (2nd instance of
Player1: using settings of Evaluation of first instance

When you set Player0 to Human in the 2nd instance, you play 'normal'
backgammon. That is: you have to move Player0 checkers.
Hint / Evaluation / Analyse will use Settings of 2nd instance.
Player1.... yep. Plays according to 1st instance.

Two questions:
1. Am I complete about what is said above?
2. Can 'external' be used for two humans to play against each other
via Internet (IP address)?
