L4D2 LAN mode offline

Hello,

a friend of mine and me want to play Left 4 Dead 2 over our LAN. We cannot access to the internet.
So how we host a game in LAN to connect both to? Game mode survival with bots.

And don't talk nonsense. At that location where we play is no internet connection...

A local area network uses the internet? Why should it?

I get a conclusion.
starting dedicated server, connecting to it via console.

strange, on xbox it was possible to play lan game with 2 xboxs with no internet. i would think it would be the same thing for pc. make sure you both have same updates though, that could be a problem.(yeah i know no internet)

from what i remember one of you has to host a local server then the other joins the game.

let me know me and my friend were thinking about doing lan again but with pc this time.

Follow this steps.

1) check your LAN ( local area network ) IP adress. Looks like 127.0.0.10 or 192.168.0.1. If you can't find it, post os version.

2) Give that LAN IP to your friend.

3) Create Friends only lobby in LAN mode and just start the game.

4 After the game started your friend open console and type connect 127.0.0.10 - he has to type IP that you have.

Make sure both firewall's accept each others IP and port acces.

No, LAN doesn't use internet. We use to play LAN at home without internet. LAN just connects the computers locally either wireless or with cable. Cable is the best choice since it's faster.
