I've never tried running the game server on the same machine as the one
from which I'm running the client. I can't think of any reason inherent
to the game server code that would prevent it from working, but the game
server code is a buggy mess, so there might be some reason it fails of
which I'm unaware.

If you friend can connect, then obviously you're not having a problem
with port 5050 accepting incoming connections, so at least you can
rule that out.
