Odalaunch can send broadcasts across a LAN as of the latest revisions

A smarter idea would be to have the launcher and server join a multicast group on a very different but static port number: each server would send a message to the group and the launcher would know of its ip address and port number (192.168.17.5:10666, 10.0.10.40:10667, 172.13.5.2:12051 whatever etc..) in the message
