    Can't connect to LAN campaign

    All,
    I have followed all of the instructions to port forward and create rules in my firewall to allow connection via LAN. I want to be able to play an LAN campaign in my house with the kiddos. I don't know what else to do. Any advice would be helpful.
    Thank you!

    Is everyone on the same internal LAN, in other words, is everyone at your house?

    If so, then port forwarding is not necessary. Make sure when the players connect, that they use the Internal IP address, not the external one.

    The IPv4 address should be sufficient to connect if everyone is inside your network (as opposed to coming across the internet from a different location).

    Yeah, we are all on the same network. I even tried to start a cloud campaign to see if the issue was that the LAN was the issue and I couldn't find it in the lobby.

    LAN games will not show in the lobby. The players will have to know the internal IP address and type that in.

    I run Cloud games and connect from machines in the same LAN all the time for testing.
