Windows – Why can’t I access LAN servers in Windows 10

gaminglanminecraftwindows 10

I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10, and now I can't see LAN servers (Minecraft, COD, etc).

If I start a LAN server from my desktop I am not able to connect to this server from my laptop. (I tried direct connect too). The Minecraft tells me:

Failed to login: Invalid session

My laptop and desktop are on the same network. Before the upgrade it worked perfectly, but now I don't know why it doesn't work.

Even though this is an old question it remains unanswered and as i encountered the same problem, which took me some while to figure out, i'm sharing my solution here.

If whitelisting your application/ports in the firewall does not work, this might:

If you have several network interfaces, disable all interfaces you do not use/need for accessing the server in question. You can do this as follows:

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Open Network and Sharing Center
  3. Click on "Change Adapter Settings"
  4. For all adapters you don't need: right click -> deactivate
