Sun Oct 12 12:38:03 2014, original submission:

The feature where local servers try to advertise their existence on the local network and local clients scan for this doesn't work reliably on all platforms and network configurations.

This ticket collects all reports together, since fixing one configuration without breaking another probably requires all of them to be considered simultaneously.

How it's supposed to work (from bug #21004):

> 1. Start server
> 2. Start client
> 3. "Connect to Network Game"
> 4. Wait a couple of seconds for server to appear in "Local Area Network" -tab (open by default)

(While we're in here, we may also want to sort out registering multicast group(s) with IANA or whatever, if we're currently using unassigned number space.)
