You would need 2 different copies and 2 different accounts in order to play coop. If steam would have made it possible to play coop on different computers with only one copy they wouldn't have sold as much.

no, you need 2 copies on 2 steam accounts to play since you can't play on LAN

You can't do that with just 1 steam account.

I am sorry, it does not work. If you want to play together in split screen, you need a console version.

You can, but it requires circumventing steam.

1. Start Portal 2 on both computers with steam in offline mode

2. Enable the console

3. Type 'sv_lan 1' into the console

4. Have one person host the game

5. Have the other person connect from the console by typeing 'connect <local-ip>'

You may or may not have to have steam in online mode for the person hosting the server. Good Luck!
