Establish Multiplayer Game on Local Network (LAN)

Apparently I am confused concerning the " appropriate " method of setting-up a multiplayer game on my local network (LAN). I just installed version 2.5.6 and I am using Ubuntu 16.04. When I boot freeciv (in the graphic mode), I receive the message: Starting local server... Welcome to the F...
