I have a desktop computer where I have a copy of Terraria server running a world. Normally I just play from there and join to my own IP address. Sometimes I would like to play from my laptop and join into the server running on the desktop. However, every time I have tried I get a warning that I'm already playing Terraria on another computer and it will shut down that system in order to play on the current computer. It then attempts to shut down the other computer's steam login, but never succeeds.
Is there any way to accomplish this? Namely, have one computer act as server but connect to the server via another computer, while both are using the same Steam account?
