A straightforward way I've discovered to let my mates hook up with my Minecraft server, which is operating by myself machine is to make use of a free software referred to as ngrok to expose my server to the web.



1) Obtain ngrok from http://www.ngrok.com. You may need to signup for a free account as well, and comply with their setup instructions.



2) Start your Minecraft server



3) To share your local Minecraft server, run the next in a terminal:



4) It will show some info, with a line like the next:



Write down the quantity that's where the XXXXX is above. SERVER TRACKER



5) Your server is now out there on the internet! But how do your pals connect with it?



6) Inform your friends to start Minecraft, then



- click "Multiplayer"- click on "Direct Connect"Fill in the following, replacing XXXXX the number you wrote down in step 4)



ngrok.com:XXXXX



7) They should now be linked to your Minecraft server!



TROUBLESHOOTING: Notice - if it does not work, then as a substitute of "Direct Connect", add it as a server by selecting "Add Server", then provide ngrok.com:XXXXX. Then just connect with the server that manner as an alternative!
