I upgraded to Minecraft 1.4.4, and whenever I try and connect to a LAN game it says "Connection Refused". Also, the IP address appears as "0.0.0.0:49245".
Use Direct Connect on each client machine and connect to the host game using the host's local IP address and the port number the game is being hosted on.
- Host's local IP address: 192.168.0.14
- Port number for LAN game: 49245
- Direct Connect -> 192.168.0.14:49245
Step 1 - Get the host machine's local IP address
- Open a new command window
- Type the following command: ipconfig
- Notice the line marked IPv4 Address. This is your host's local IP address.
- Open a new terminal window (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) (thanks MellyVG257!)
- Type the following command: ifconfig |grep inet
- Notice the line that starts with inet but is not 127.0.0.1. This is your host's local IP address.

- Try the instructions for the Mac (above) using ifconfig. (thanks
- Click on the Network Connection icon
- Click Connection Information
- Notice the item marked IPv4 IP Address. This is yoiur host's local IP address.
Step 2 - Get the port number the host is using to run the game
- On the host machine, notice the IP address it says the game is being hosted at.
- The number after the colon ( : ) is the port number.
- Example: If the host reports the game being run on 0.0.0.0:49245, then 49245 is the port number
- On each client machine, in Minecraft go to Multiplayer -> Direct Connect
- Enter the address as [HOST_IP_ADDRESS]:[HOST_PORT_NUMBER]
- Example: If the host's IP address is 192.168.0.14 and the port number is reported as 49245, then you will enter 192.168.0.14:49245 for the address.
