How do I set up a LAN game?

Question

My brothers and I are trying to start a LAN game together but we don't know how.

If there's a way I'm supposed to set it up, I'd like to know. I searched for LAN but couldn't got no results. When I try to start a LAN game, the Client show's that I'm connected to a Loopback IP address (127.0.0.1). We were able to play online, but my brother would like to be able to play on LAN because he doesn't have internet at his home.

the first one of you who starts up cncnet in LAN mode will become the server and connect to the server running on his pc via 127.0.0.1.

The next one will search for a server and find yours and connect to it automatically, you don't need to change any setting, it should just work.

 

Make sure you allow cncnet + LAN server in your firewall so the client on your brothers pc can find your server.

You can also try to close the server on your pc, then let your brother be the first one to start up cncnet so he becomes the server, then you try to launch cncnet and see if you can connect to him.

 

Make sure your pcs are actually connected properly. What are your private ips? compare them and make sure they match (except the last number)

updates on this? got the same issue.
can see my friend in the LAN lobby but no matter what or whoever makes a game it never shows up in the left side.

note, firewall is turned off on both machines as we are not connected to an outside internet connection at the time of playing. (we are on holiday in a tent in a field with electric hookup. camping lan party haha.)

anyway to directly connect to an IP address?

What game are you playing? Are you using CnCNet for LAN games or the original in-game interface?

      This is a solution to become a CnCNet host server in linux servers that have systemd for service control (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS...):
      Do it as a root or add 'sudo' before every command:
       
      useradd -m cncnet wget -c https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server-core.tgz -O - | tar xz -C /home/cncnet chown cncnet:cncnet /home/cncnet/cncnet-server-core wget -O /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service https://files.catbox.moe/dz1q2i.service # Change 'my new name server' to your own server name sed -i 's/My cool server/my new name server/g' /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service systemctl daemon-reload systemctl enable cncnet.service systemctl start cncnet.service Make a service is better than crontab for auto start solution!

      Hello everybody.
      I haven't been active in the Command & Conquer community for some time, it's nice to see that it is still thriving and that there is plenty of online activity, with that being said, a friend of mine has brought something to my attention that I wanted to query with the current staff. 
      In the Tiberian Sun Client there appear to be some maps that are being used that were maps that I had initially made exclusively for Twisted Insurrection. Some of these maps started off as remakes of maps from other games like Red Alert 2 such as the ones titled Rocky Road, Twinside and Redemption. I am not particularly bothered about these for the reasons stated earlier, despite the fact that they were remade from the ground up, but they are still shamelessly pulled from Twisted Insurrection with minor edits to make them compatible with Tiberian Sun, they even use the same alternative name that I gave them as opposed to the names of the maps they were based on which shows they were directly taken from the mod. 
      My main gripe is that there is also the map Vinifera Valley which has been a Twisted Insurrection exclusive map that I created quite some time ago. It appears that it is in circulation at the moment as part of an official update to the Tiberian Sun Client , yet, no credit is given to myself or to Twisted Insurrection itself for use of the map anywhere as far as I can tell. I have checked with the active members of the Twisted Insurrection team as of the moment and, as far as we know, nobody asked permission to use these maps and no credit has been given. May I ask why this is and what has happened here?

      Thanks.

      Hi guys. I am playing with my friends and some of them don’t see the little map top right. Is it related with maps that I made on Final Alert? Can you help me

      I've just installed Yuri's Revenge from origins and then CNC to play online. Everytime I join a match, whenever the host starts the game my computer will act like it's doing something and then bring me right back to the match screen and say I "returned from the game". Anyone have a fix for this?
