A little outdated, but still fun.

On Windows 7, you have to leave the desktop resolution settings open after attempting to multiplay using the Battle.net client you must download and update. If Battle.net doesn't work for you as it didn't with me, use ForceBindIP and Hamachi (tutorials on YouTube).
If you have recent PCs and money to spare, StarCraft 2 is the prettier version that should run without manual tricks.
This is still a fun classic RTS, though.
