--connect=x:y                   Auto connect to host server at IP or hostname x using port y

Shortcut version of using --connecthost and --use-ports.

*NOTE: to automatically connect to the first LAN

host you may use: --connect=auto-connect

Where x is an optional comma delimited command

list of one or more of the following:

exit - which quits the application after a game

has no more connected players.
