Yes, that's what I did. We were in the same room and couldn't get it connected up in Windows 10 :p

Guess I could try emulating windows 95

I don't think that will help. I think you just need to coordinate with another person who is willing to play against you at a certain time.

I haven't used it that way since I had Windows 95. When I did, I arranged with another person regarding the time and game we would play together, and I believe I was in communication with him while setting up the connection for Zillions-of-Games. But I do not remember the steps we went through to do that. Also, back then, I had a dial-up internet account. I now have broadband, which works differently, and I don't know if that will make a difference.

Still works in Windows 10, but can't get any internet play to work. If anyone out there knows how to set it up I'd be grateful.

Have the links to .zrf's been cut as a part of the move?  All the download links I've looked at today have sent me back to the home page.
