    I have created a BUKKIT server, me and my friends want to play on it together (on the same network.) I have made the server accessible from different computers, however I would like the server to be accessible when the minecraft server searches for servers on the local network. Is there any plugin or any other way to make this possible?

    No this is not possible I believe, you could just not portforward though and join through localhost

    Unfortunately that wouldn't work for the others on the network, on the host itself

    @AdamQpzm there is no way to lan a bukkit server

    @oceantheskatr That is correct - local IP address will work fine. The following is not possible, however:

    - Have everyone join with just 'localhost'
    - The OP's question: have Minecraft detect the server in "searching for local servers" feature, which only works for servers created with Minecraft's built-in "Open to LAN" (afaik there's no way to change this, without mods of course)

    you will definitely need the other computers on the network to connect via the local IP address. localhost will only work for the computer running bukkit.

    You can find that PC's Local IP address with the ipconfig command in windows.
