I wanna make a server for me and my brother. We both live in the same house, use the same internet. Is it possible to make a minecraft server without port forwarding or using Hamachi.

Anyone else still struggling with this problem: You can just use Lan now.
Enter your minecraft game. Click "Open to LAN" Get friend to go on Multiplayer. Get friend to click LAN world. Success! You are now exploring the tastefully cubic world of the craftmine!

This looks like:
I would ask: What do I need to do to step by step to cook a cake?
And you would say:
You need to cook cake.
It's seems little stupid......

I know it sounds stupid, but did you install the server software and are running it? If so then all you need is Localhost right? thats what I did when my friends came round once.

You do NOT need to port forward. Benedict and LloydToS already explained the proper method. If that doesn't work, chances are that a) you're not connecting properly, b) the server is not set up properly, or c) your router is broken.
However, if your computers can't see each other for any other network related stuff, it's also possible that you have network isolation turned on in your router settings, which prevents computers on the same network from seeing or connecting to each other. You can change that by visiting 192.168.1.1 in your browser (or whatever your router's instructions say; they are usually on the bottom of the router), typing in your username and password to access the router (if they haven't been changed, try "admin" for both fields, or "admin" for the username and nothing for the password, otherwise you will need to get the password from whoever set it up, or reset it to factory settings, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing), and finding the area where you can disable network isolation.

I tried that already and it says "Failed to connect to the server" something like that. I think i need to port forward, but how
How to port forward, I'm new to this. When i get access to the laptop, i will see if i need to port forward.
All you need to do is go to windows start on the pc with the server, type cmd in that search bar, run command prompt, type 'ipconfig' without the ' and find the what your IP is as shown in the screenshot from neobenedict a few posts up. Now tell the person that is using the other pc to type in that IP address in the game and it should work. If it doesn't, i think you'd have to type the address like 192.*.*.*:25565 replacing stars with the proper ip address found in the command prompt. Also, the person hosting the server can just type in localhost instead of an IP address in the game.
