Minecraft Java Edition LAN Game Pi4 to Windows 10

Sat May 23, 2020 2:44 pm

Hi everyone,

To start, I searched many LAN related threads and found similar but different issues, so please pardon me in advance if this has been covered already.


I have a Pi4 with full Minecraft 1.12.2 running on it and I am attempting to do a LAN game with a Window10 PC also with Java edition on it. It doesn't seem to work for me.


Raspberry Pi 4
Buster Desktop OS installed
Followed this tutorial and had no issues with the initial setup: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=243946
Windows 10 PC
Minecraft Java edition on it

What I tried and result:

Made a new profile for each and ensure both are running version 1.12.2

*Started Singleplayer game on the Pi
*Enabled LAN game in options
*On Windows game, the server does not show in the servers list when I go to Multiplayer

*Started Singleplayer game on the Windows PC
*Enabled LAN game in options
*On Pi, server shows up in Multiplayer browser, one attempt to join crashed (window just went away and I didn't see any error)
*Second attempt it just timed out

Should this theoretically be possible or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks for reading.
