So, I'm trying to play on a LAN server with my sibling. When she or I click "Open to LAN" in the pause menu, it works, shows the port number. But I can't find it in the Multiplayer tab on the very bottom. We are both using a Mac. Help??

LANs work when a host hosts the world on a local network for others to join. The lan number is not useless.

Go to the play multiplayer screen, and click "Direct connect."

You should then be offered an entry called "Server Address" Enter the number displayed when you open to LAN.

I haven't used LAN for a while but I think this is the solution. Another thing is make sure that both are connected to the internet.
