LAN-only config? Search-fu is weak...

Hey all, Trying to setup a LAN-only for a weekend LAN party. Is that even possible? I seem to recall a sv_lan setting, but that doesn't seem to fit anywhere or do anything in the SteamCMD world and ns2. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    There is no extra setting needed. Just be aware that NS2 does run a steam auth before connecting to a server so you really need to be connected to the steam auth server to play it. Even the steam offline mode won't work.

    Just set a password so only people from the LAN can join. I case the server does not show up for people in the server browser let them use "connect <ip> <password>" in the console.
