I have mostly missed out on the whole local-area network scene for most of my life and are now in the process of catching up. I don't have a HUB at home, though, so what my cousin and I tried when playing Minecraft was span a UTP-cable from his laptop to mine. I then opened up a singleplayer world for lan, but got an IP-address that seemed impossible to me:
This setup had worked a few months earlier, but now we both get this kind of address whenever we try to open up a world. We both run the same versions of the game and I tried with a different cable at a different location (during a break at work), but got the same results. A few 0's.
Anybody got some advice?
Thank you kindly and my apologies for the delayed reply. I read a lot about issues with 1.4.4 and while I use a newer version, I'll still give this solution a shot.
