My mom, I admit is so uninformed about LAN game servers, and is not tech-savvy. She thinks that a LAN server is a public server where people outside on the internet can access my LAN server.
She is misinformed, and I can't dumb it down, since she automattically thinks "A server is for everyone to access. This puts my computer at risk of getting comprimised"
I don't know how to talk to her in a way that she can understand that a local IP is not a public IP and that a server hosted on a LAN network cannot be accessed without port forwarding..
I tried to explain, but she thinks that hosting a LAN server allowes people on the internet to access it without portforwarding the router. I also tried to say that someone has to be connected to our network to access the server - she thinks the server can be accessed on the internet. I have no ideas on how to dumb it down that LAN servers cannot be accessed from outside of the network.
Can someone help me on how to dumb it down so she can understand?
