I'm on it!

The idea is a simple UDP broadcast on a dedicated port. A thread on the client will receive the packet which contains some valuable information, and will identify the sender. The information will be added in a list, and display them in the same way as information from the index server.

ok so for IPv6 no idea... it's a good idea to think about it., but not really use today...

for IPX/SPX, heu... i think no one use it now ;)

Maybe just have a look at some FPS server code.

we can quite easily do a broadcast if all IP are C class; but how to with IPv6 ?

Under your words we need to create a volatile index server where look at LAN Games.

If I remember well, lan's game use IPX/SPX ? but i thought it's a proprietary one (NetWare) ?

Waiting for devs respond.

It'll be great if LAN server are show in the "Connect to" page. Maybe split in two, up for public battles (Internet with index server), and down for LAN battles.

At this time, we should use manual connection for join a LAN game.

I don't know how it's possible (a dirt one, is to check the lan for port 3826 open (but if port is change...) or use broadcast maybe)
