Hi,
Can you add an option to connect to server directly by providing IP? This would simplify playing over VPN since many of them do not allow UDP broadcast which makes finding games impossible.
Thanks

To play via LAN, all computers must be connected to the same LAN. A player who wishes to join your game will need to know the game's name like here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWZvO1yTGOk

I remember that blankname did Direct IP connection but it don't work for me (i can't see the connection type). Maybe we add IP connection to Awake Reboot.

This is the thing I am talking about — Diablo tries to find games using UDP broadcast which is not forwarded by default in many VPN implementations. If you add connecting directly by IP, gamers will be able to play with each other using any layer 3 VPN (e.g. Windows RRAS) or even without it (with public IP and/or port forwarding).
