There are a lot of complications to this problem. The solution we're going with is to drop that dialog, because it's meaningless and we can't make in meaningful.

Beleive it or not, I actually hadn't tried multiplayer with 1.1.14 yet.  The last time I had tried multiplayer was with 1.1.13.  It seems to work fine despite what the GUI says--probably due to the fact that it seems you hardcoded "127.0.0.1" into the GUI and the GUI never actually tells the game what interface to use.  So, right now, I'm going to say that this is more of a feature request than a bug.

Dispite the multiplayer working, it would still be nice to be able to select an interface -- or at least to be able to type in manually what IP address to bind to -- in the GUI.  At the very least, it'd be nice for the GUI to show what address the game is really going to use.

I'm afraid I'm not a C programmer, so I can't really help out here.  I can usually follow the logic in the code, but that's about it.  I'm restricted to PHP and a bit of Java, for the time being.

However, Airsnort seems to have an interface drop-down that you could probably work from:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/airsnort
fillDeviceList in callbacks.c is probably about what you're looking for.

So, in summation, the part of this bug about clients not being able to connect seems to be invalid.  If you would like me to move the bit about the interfaces into a feature request, I can.  It's your choice.

Do you have any code suggestions? The problem is that I don't have multiple interfaces to test against, and am not exactly sure how it's handled.

The GUI incorrectly detects my public IP address in the Server tab.  It binds to 127.0.0.1 (localhost) instead of my public LAN IP.  This causes Clients to fail connecting to me because Crack Attack is not listening on the correct interface.

The most intuitive solution would be to provide a drop-down menu in the Server tab with a list of the available network interfaces (and IPs) on the machine.
