Running on LAN

I tried to run Korax Arena on LAN but failed. Joining game simply cannot find vavoom server. (I hope KA uses same networking mechanism as common Vavoom) Can you explain, please, what I need to configure then to run the game successfully? Also what exactly should be written into "join game at" field? NOTE: we succesfully play Counter-Strike on this LAN.

Start a network game on one of the computers (this will be the server), on other go to "Join Game" and then to "Search for games...". It should appear in the list, select it and press enter to join. If it can't find, you can use "join game at". [quote="Crimson Wizard":3mx0xt8v]Also what exactly should be written into "join game at" field? Hostname or IP address of the server you want to connect to.

If it can't find, you can use "join game at". Well, that is obvious. But don't we need to specify some network config parameters like -ip or -port and such? (Unfortunately cannot test again right now)

If you want to use a different port, use console command "port". Use -ip option if Vavoom can't properly detect your IP address (only server needs this).
