Ive been looking around Planet Minecraft for 1.3 servers lately (Who hasn't :P) and Ive noticed some people are saying they are hosting LAN servers. I dont think people are understanding what LAN means. LAN means
Local Area Network! Meaning, only people connected to your internet can join!
LAN Can: Let people from your internet connection join in on your Single Player world.
LAN Cant: Let people from other areas, such as your neighbors house, join.
So, Do not say you are hosting a LAN Server, because other people CANT JOIN PUBLICLY!
Just thought I would say that so we can stop with the "Hey Im Hosting A LAN Server" stuff.

When you have your world Open To LAN, when he presses the Multiplayer button, it should say at the bottom of the list: Single Player LAN World. If he clicks that, he should connect.

LAN Servers do not support Plugins. So protecting things is not an option :(

People connected to your HOME INTERNET can connect. Lets say your home internet was called Linksys-Edward Anyone connected to Edward could connect to the LAN, anyone who isnt, couldnt.
