I would like to make some sort of game that directly connects to a local game if there is any or else creates one without having to type some IP-adress or anything. What is this kind of networking called? Are there any (easy) tutorials on it? I have never programmed any network stuff before. Thanks!

Hi,

you should either store the server IP address in some config file, or use a multicast socket (see the javadoc for java.net.MulticastSocket, there''s a nice code snippet there).

have a nice day...
