So me and my Sister were playing Terraria (1.4.1.1)via the LAN connection just fine, Until it randomly stopped working and now whenever we try to connect to each other's worlds we get stuck on the forever connecting screen..

We made sure that Terraria was allowed through the Firewall, We ran a couple of Virus scans and we tried reinstalling it but it was all to no avail..

I'm hoping that we can find an answer to this annoying problem and return to our Terrarian world.

  • Do you have this issue using LAN features on other games or things?

  • Open the terminal (cmd or powershell on Windows, Terminal on Linux or macOS) and try ping [server ip] and replace [server ip] with the ip of your Terraria server. Does the server respond? If no, the server may have received a new IP address from your router.

  • @Penguin I tried using LAN in Minecraft and the server showed up but i couldn't connect to it (stuck on "connecting to" just like Terraria)

  • @Nolonar The command prompt showed the following "E:\User\Acer>ping192.168.1.109 Pinging 192.168.1.109 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 192.168.1.105: Destination host unreachable.

  • This is actually the first time I see a response to a ping come from a different IP address... However, "Destination host unreachable" means the server's IP is no longer correct. I guess the next sensible thing to do is to open the terminal on the server and try ipconfig (Windows) or ifconfig (Linux/macOS). You'll get a list of different network interfaces and their IP addresses. One of these addresses should be in the form of 192.168.1.xyz where xyz is a 1-3 digit number. That would be the new IP address you should try to connect to in Terraria.
