Minecraft: Can't Find LAN Server
Over the weekend, I've installed three Minecraft clients on three gaming laptops for my family and I. We want to play together in the same world. But whenever we start in multiplayer, the LAN server never shows up on the server list. We tried both "Open to LAN" option and running a dedicated server on a fourth computer.
So we resorted to "Direct Connect", because we know the LAN IP address. But even putting the IP didn't work. Finally, I decided to try the Windows computer name. And surprisingly, that worked; Minecraft was able to find the server and log in.
Let us know if this solution works for you. I would like to share notes on why Minecraft doesn't show the server in the server list and why it can't connect to a IP address.
