Issues with LAN Play
Anyone else able to make LAN play work? Everything appears to start fine, but no one can see anyone elses games, regardless of who hosts them. Is there some trick to this that I am missing?

My wife and I are trying to play via lan. Nothing.

Same, can't see games on local LAN.
I have no idea, however, many users on the official runic games forums report that it does indeed work. good luck.
Same, cannot see hosted game.

Are you playing from behind a router? Might need to forward a port or two depending on your network's configuration and hardware. Exactly which ports I do not know. Not having any issues setting up LAN play on my local network but we are both wired to the same router.

The wife and our I are on the same switch, there is nothing between us. this is not a VLAN setup, we are actually trying to get a LAN game going. I am hoping that this is not a failure on the applications part to properly handle launching a network listener in Windows7

Same boat sort of. I can see a game hosted by my gf, but she cannot see mine. Also, two friends of mine cannot see each other when they're playing through w/l ap, but if they connect physically they can see each other's games. None of us can see any of our games through Hamachi and there's no Steam integration so we can't rightclick>join game.
So the four of us cannot play together which was the sole reason I bought the 4-pack. :(

LAN works perfectly for my wife and I.
We are both running Windows 7.

Make sure of the following:
1) Your firewall allows incoming and outgoing connections on LAN
2) You are all using the same version (Steam and PWE copies do not work together as they are different versions)
3) You are actually on a LAN and not a VLAN (like hamachi/ tuungle etc)

Also works fine for me, was playing for hours with my brother last night. I have Windows 7 he has Vista, didn't have to do anything to the router settings, it just worked. ^.^

You could try using static ip's and make sure your firewall is open for torchlight. I use Eset NOD32 and it's firewall blocks LAN games unless you set it up or ofc temp disable it.

LAN has been working fine for my brothers myself and my girlfriend... all on the same switch. We did have some funky disconnects but only for like a minute then it was fine.

I have actually made some progress with this. If I go in and shutdown the windows firewalls, which were not logging any blocks fwiw, I was able to get the game to show in the list. So anyone using the default windows firewall settings in Win7 may be having this problem.

Actually I was able to play with two other peeps over Tunngle without any issues or router/firewall configuration. Hamachi didn't work at all, however.
