I made a world on Minecraft 1.7.2 the other day and I opened my world to LAN, but no-one could connect. I think it's because the port number came up as 54033 instead of 25565. What went wrong?

    I'm unclear on something: Did this actually cause a problem for other people trying to connect to the LAN world? Commented Oct 27, 2013 at 18:46
  • well no one could even join the game

  • maybe they should use as the ip (replace with your actual IP) Commented Oct 27, 2013 at 19:42

It's no mistake that the port number is 54033, the LAN port is usually randomised. If your friend can't see your world in the Multiplayer tab, I'd suggest checking out my post on this topic. I answered a very similar question on there, and gave instructions on how a friend can connect in this situation. If you have problems don't hesitate to contact me!
