a friend and I usually play Minecraft together on LAN worlds. Everything works perfectly if we direct connect by typing in the local IP address as well as the port. This is okay usually, since when you open a LAN world a message pops up that tells you the port. We tell each other the port and direct connect using the IP and port. The games do not show up in the multiplayer screen under
Scanning for games on your local network
I have added Minecraft and JavaApplicationStub to allow incoming connections in my Mac firewall.
It is annoying to have to type in the IP and port every time we want to play. Also, we are trying a new mod and when we open the world to LAN, there is no message that tells the port. Is there a way I can get these games to appear when scanning for multiplayer games? We are both on Mac OS X.
