Default Halo 2 Xbox 360 /PC Lan

I know Halo 2 for PC can play online with Halo 2 for xbox online through xbox live. But can my friend plug his 360 into my pc network and can we halo 2 lan with him on his 360 and me on pc?

Or can we only play through the internet and not lan?

I can't believe how many people actually think it is a cross platform game. Halo 2 for PC cannot cross platform with xbox's

Must have been another trick by Microsoft.

I dunno, must have been some sort of blog rumor you picked up on. It is really too bad they didn't.
