How to set up a local mumble server (for LAN use)

Hey, guys. I assumed this is just what everyone did for LANs, but apparently it's not. It's incredibly easy, and it's the first thing I do every lan I actually play on.

  1. Download the latest version of mumble: https://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Main_Page
  2. Install mumble (if you already have it, select "Change").

  3. Where it gives you the install options, click the icon next to "Murmur" and select "Will be installed on local hard drive"

  4. Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mumble" (or wherever your mumble is installed) and open "murmur.exe". Be sure to enable everything to connect to it if you're prompted by firewall/etc. Once launched, an icon should appear in your tray.
  5. Open command prompt (Windows Key+R, type "cmd"). Type "ipconfig" and press enter. Find your "IPv4" address. This is the IP you give to everyone else on the network. You will use "127.0.0.1" on your computer. Default port.

  6. OPTIONAL: If you want it password-protected, go back to your mumble folder and right-click "murmur.ini", click edit, and find "serverpassword", and type whatever you want after the equal sign.


Ta da! Private, local mumble server. If I ever see any of you using discord on LAN again, I'm going to cry for you. You deserve better.
