    Maptools uses TCP/IP to connect over the net, in a LAN, or on the same computer. I was using my LAN IP address of 192.168.x.x. Which meant I had to at least be connected to a router for it to work. At the FLGS loosing internet meant being disconnected from the router loosing the LAN connection. What I found works was changing the address to the computers internal IP address of

    I imagine the same solution might work for Fantasy Grounds.

    I just started with the VTT so I am not tied down with a big time investment to any particular program... yet. I have been playing around with Fantasy Grounds and will look into some of the other recommendations to see what work with me and my group.

    I'm thinking that a VTT probably won't do what you want it to do here.
    This is nonsense, at least as far as Fantasy Grounds goes, since I just tested it. I disconnected from the internet and got two instances of FG to connect on a LAN. I am pretty sure I managed something similar with Maptools years ago.

    Now I do not think your problem has anything to do with the internet but the LAN on the FLGS. Are you connecting using WIFI? I suspect you are and you have a crappy connection. If so your best bet is to create a LAN between the 2 PCs using an ethernet cable
