Possible issues

  1. If have a virtual machine installed on your computer, the IP address that you see on the top left of the app may be overridden by your virtual machine. Therefore, if you can't receive data from the game, make sure to check your real IP address with the commands ifconfig (macOS) or ipconfig (Windows). One easy solution is to set the Broadcast Mode 'On' in the game which would allow any IP address to receive the data.
