Run a Minecraft Server on Your PC and Play with Friends over the Internet or a LAN
Nov 15, 2018PC GamingComments (461)
Setting up a Minecraft server on your home Windows computer is fairly easy. With basic knowledge of computers and networking, you can be playing with friends over a local area network (LAN) or the Internet in minutes.

Note: This guide is for the Java version of Minecraft, which is the original version for PC. Each player that wants to connect must have purchased Minecraft Java Edition for their PC from The console and mobile versions are not compatible with the Java version, and for those you'll need to use Minecraft Realms.

Computer Performance Requirements
Make sure your computer has at least a 2 GHz dual-core processor, 2 GB of memory (RAM), and a good Internet connection. I recommend a wired network to cut down on latency. Depending on how many players you'll have on your server, you may need more power than that. Stopping as many running and background programs as possible will also help.

If you plan to also play Minecraft on the same computer that the server is on, I recommend having 4 GB of RAM at a minimum and a fairly new processor and graphics card.

If your computer isn't up to the task, check out Amazon's top-rated gaming PCs.

Step 1: Get the Latest Version of Java

Go to and get the latest version of Java.

Step 2: Download the Minecraft Server

Download the latest version of the server from the official download page. It will be a server.jar file. Put that downloaded file in a folder where you'd like to run the Minecraft server.

Step 3: Run the Server

Open a Windows command prompt in the folder where you put the server jar file. To easily do this, hold down shift while you right-click in an empty space inside the folder:

Minecraft Server Command Prompt

Once in the command prompt, run this command to start the server:

java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar server.jar nogui
You can paste the command into the command prompt by right-clicking and choosing paste (ctrl+v does not work in command prompts).

Using PowerShell Instead of Command Prompt
If the command prompt didn't work or you would prefer to use PowerShell, you can and it works similarly. Just make sure you have PowerShell open in the directory where server.jar is. This may be accomplished differently on different Windows versions. Search online if you're unsure how. Once in the proper directory, run the same command from above. Note: To paste into PowerShell you only need to right-click inside the window.

Once ran, the Minecraft server will create some files in the folder it resides in and you should receive an error message about the EULA:

Minecraft Server Command Prompt

You will have to open the generated eula.txt file and set:

After doing that, run the command again. This time a new world should be generated and your server should be running:

Minecraft Server Command Prompt

Step 4: Server Commands

The server is controlled using server commands that you enter in the command prompt. View the basic server commands here and familiarize yourself with them. At the very least, know how to use stop, which safely closes down the server and saves the world.

Minecraft Server Command Prompt

Step 5: Connect to Your Server

Open the regular Minecraft game, click Multiplayer, then click Direct Connect. You'll be entering an IP address here based on where you are relative to the server computer.

On the same computer
If you're playing Minecraft on the same computer as the Minecraft server, enter

On another computer in the network
If you're on another computer in the local network (connected to the same router), enter the local IP address of the computer that's running the server. To find this, go to the computer that's running the server and type ipconfig into a command prompt. The IP address should look similar to, though the last two numbers could be different.

(The above is an example IP address only)

Over the Internet
To connect to the Minecraft server over the Internet, you'll need to know the external IP address of the computer the Minecraft server is on. You can find it by browsing to while on the Minecraft server PC. Just like the local IP address, it will be 4 sets of numbers separated by periods. It may look something like but each set of numbers will be different.

If the computer that the Minecraft server is on is connected via a router to the Internet modem, which it should be for security reasons, then you'll have to make sure the router is properly port forwarding Minecraft Internet traffic to the computer that has the Minecraft server on it (even if you only have the one computer).

Port forwarding is something your router does so that it sends the right type of traffic to the right computer. Minecraft uses port 25565, so the router needs to be setup to send any traffic on port 25565 to the computer that has the Minecraft server.

Go to, scroll down and select your router model. The model number is usually listed on the front or back of your router. If you are shown an advertisement for a port forwarding program, click "skip this advertisement" at the top.

Next, select the game you want to port forward for, which is "Minecraft Server" in this case. It may tell you that you need a static IP address. It's referring to the internal IP address. Every time a computer is connected to your router, or turned on, the router assigns it a local IP address. It usually stays the same but can sometimes change. So you may have to update the settings if you were to disconnect the computer from the router or shut it down. If you run Minecraft server a lot and shut down your computer often, you may want to look into giving your computers static local IP addresses.

Once you've forwarded port 25565 to the correct computer, you can test it at Be sure to check for port 25565 (80 is the default port for website traffic). For additional troubleshooting, see the Minecraft server install wiki.

Keep in mind that both your external and local IP addresses may change when you shut down your computer or reset your modem. Each time you start your server, be sure to double-check your internal and external IP address, and update settings accordingly.

Now that your Minecraft server is properly setup, you can send your external IP address to your friends and have them connect to your Minecraft server over the Internet:

If your PowerShell and command prompt doesn't work, you can use visual studio code. just open the server file with visual studio code and use the terminal for anything you need.

Careful. If not setup properly, port forwarding and open ports can create an attack surface that are commonly used by hackers to gain access to systems. Keep your ports closed and don't port forward! You can give users access to your locally hosted Minecraft server, with no open ports and no port forwarding by using And here's the instructions on how to do it:

Also one thing that can be stopping all of you. If any of you are using MC LEAKS it will not work. MCLEAKS is basically a hacked account, and all MCLEAKS accounts have been reported, and if they are not recoverable, Minecraft bans it from joining any server. You can ofcourse play singleplayer.

Hey, y'all. I just went through hell only to find something that no one on line anywhere mentioned. I went to my routers IP Address on my browser, and went to firewall settings. After hours of trying different addresses and different port forwarding settings, I finally became curious about a setting group called "ip passthrough" I set the type to be "dynamic dchp" and then I assigned the device as the computer that I'm HOSTING the server on. This immediately showed my 25565 port as "open" on port checkers and I was able to join my server using my external IP address. I really hope this helps.

If you are getting the 'java' is not recognized it may mean that you do not have Java installed on your computer. So first you must install java then perform the steps illustrated here on this page. That worked for me :))

@tyler, you need a VPN for this. even a 25 dollar raspberry pi could play VPN host. then use dynamic dns service on.. VPN mis like running s lsan cable over the internet you can think of it like a pipe within a pipe or a wire within a wire where the outer wire of the internet can't to your pipe or wire every computer connected to your private lawyer over the internet thinks they're in the same room. Alternatively if you have neighbors on both sides just run an actual Lan cable and it's a lot easier

Hey all! As far as I know, I got everything set up. I have the external IP ready to share with my friend, and the port forwarding is set up to the internal IP of my computer, which is where the server is running from. However, when I check to see if the port is open, I'm being told it's closed. Any way to fix this?
Nick   Mar 26, 2020
juan_geuzendam, the ip you give your friend isnt either of those, look up whatsmyip in google, get the ipv4 and give your friend that one.
Ian   Mar 26, 2020
Juan: The ipconfig command gives you the internal ip address your router assigned your computer. You need to go into your router's settings to figure out what the public ip address is for the router, which is what your friend needs to connect to. You will also need to tell your router to forward port 25565 TCP and UDP traffic to the internal ip address that is running your server.

In order to get mods to work on your server, you have to download the forge server file from the internet instead of the official Minecraft one. To download this, download the forge installer for the version of Minecraft you want and press "install server" when you open it. after going through all the steps in the tutorial, move all mods to the newly created "mods" folder. Then, when you run it, those mods will be active.

To locate ur .minecraft file -> open ur file browser -> type in %appdata% -> locate the .minecraft file. If the server file ain't there, then u gotta check where u chose to install ur server file. Like I just did, I run my server from my external HDD plugged in to my iMac. Just created a folder named "minecraft server, installed the server files into the folder on my external HDD. For mods, do the exact same thing, just make sure to install the mods / mod launcher INSIDE the minecraft server folder.

if anyone is confused about port forwarding: Check your internet router, on it it should have a website or a series of numbers to put into the search tab in whatever browser. That will take you to a page asking you to input a username and password, both of these things should be written on the router as well. If the default one written on the router isn't working, it's probably been changed. Ask either your parents or whoever set up that router. Once in, find the section on the page called "port forwarding" or "port-range forwarding". You'll either have a section called "Start" and "End" where you can type in some numbers (where you put in 25565) - or two acronyms UCP and T something, type in the same number in these areas.
Noah   Mar 08, 2019

(SOME_ID) is collecting every 5 minutes, but i dont know, if game should follow some .htaccess redirects. or is there some kind of minecraft server config file which should inform client about "new" location of server?

Nick_McStampy   Jun 29, 2018
Ok, thanks. Yeah, it's not there I guess it was deleted. BTW is there a way to change the name or seed?
Nick   Jun 28, 2018
The server world is created in the same folder as the server.jar file (it is a folder named "world"). It's generally a good idea to create a backup copy of this folder often. If it was deleted, the next time the server runs it will generate a new world (with the folder name "world").

Hi, thanks so much for this guide, but I'm still having some difficulty. I followed all port-forwarding instructions, got a static IP address. I can access the server through "localhost," but I'm unable to get friends on non-local servers to connect. Port-checker websites do say that port 25565 is closed on my IP; is this a Firewall issue? I can't access my Firewall info; when I go to "allow an app to run through firewall," Java is not listed as an option. I can't find the Firewall services on my router's settings page ANYWHERE (I'm using a Netgear Nighthawk X6 R8000). I'm also running Norton, is this a problem? (The error code friend received when he tried to connect is "$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection refused: no further information:" Thanks!

Thank you. Could you do a tutorial on making a Minecraft server that listens to a different port and the internet connection setup thing? (P.S. didn't know what to call it so don't judge my terminology, please.)
Nick   Apr 06, 2018
I'm not sure if you can do a second setup on the same computer. It would depend on if you can run a separate instance of the Minecraft server that listens to a different port, I think. I haven't researched into it but that may be a place to start. If you're in different cities you'll have to connect over the Internet. The setup is a little more difficulty but not too bad. You could also just give in and use Minecraft Realms, which costs money but will be much simpler.
Nick_McStampy   Apr 06, 2018
Two main questions: Q1) Is it possible to do a second setup of this on one computer? Q2) How can I and my cousin connect when he is in New York and I'm in Fayetteville? One side question: Q3) when will I get any answers?

Adam   Dec 12, 2017
I'm having significant problems playing this game with my friend via the internet. Why's it got to be so bloody complicated? The first time we opened my ports and I did the static IP address stuff, it eventually worked, the whole nightmare only taking half an hour. However we spent two hours on it yesterday and she just could not connect to me no matter what.

That's a version 6 IP address. Should work the same, though I have no experience using it with Minecraft.
Edwins Bazile   Aug 28, 2016
it says my ip is 2601:18d:4201:5c3:f177:5e22:b9c2:f2f1
Nick Vogt   Jul 06, 2016
"localhost" refers to the computer you're currently on. If you're connecting to a server that is running on the same computer, then you can use "localhost" or, they are interchangeable here.
Yesenia Alamo   Jul 05, 2016
Ok I went to a different video and I downloaded it and it told me to put the ip as localhost I did it but what's the ip? I'm so confused is someone knows pls reply

You may have to search Google for help on your specific router. Find out the exact model and search for port forwarding.
Steven Sandoval   Nov 12, 2015
Nick Vogt does not have my router. What do I do now?
Nick Vogt   Nov 11, 2015
If he's connecting over the Internet, he'll have to put in your IP address (and your local network needs to be setup to properly port forward Minecraft connections).
Steven Sandoval   Nov 11, 2015
If I am going to have my computer host the server while playing on it, what does my friend put into the direct connect to connect to my server?
Logan Kern   Oct 19, 2015
How can i change what the world is like.
Chiwaii Farms   Sep 16, 2015
Windows ten edition, phone versions and ios versions r compoaatible due to the latest update. I have tried it without the cross platform (normal one) and i still had the same problem ;-:
Nick Vogt   Sep 14, 2015
Your router is set up to use 10.0.0.x for DHCP, which shouldn't be an issue (you'll just be using that instead of 192.168.1.x). I am not sure why it isn't working for you, but I have no experience with cross platform Minecraft. I'm not sure that they are compatible.
Chiwaii Farms   Sep 14, 2015
I have followed everything correctly, but the only difference between urs and mine is that my ip for my pc is 10.0.0.( ) i wont tell the last two numbers. Its the same as my default gateway cept for the last part. I want to run the server on my pc and play it on my kindle ( i hve a cross platform server if that helps) and whenever i trt to connect it says cannot load world etc
Nick Vogt   Aug 31, 2015
If your computer is powerful enough, you definitely can. You can run a Minecraft client as well as the server, or anything else your computer if up for.

One friend can connect to my server, while another friend cannot. However the friend that cannot connect to my server can connect to other servers. So..... help? Anyone?
dokstein   Aug 20, 2012
This is great info and worked beautifully for me to set up a minecraft server for my son to play with his friends. The only things that are missing in these instructions are: (1) That I had to open up my Windows (XP, fyi) firewall on the machine I was running minecraft on. The symptom of this was that when we tried to do a direct connect to the server, the connection timed out. The solution was to bring up Control Panel / Security Center, click Windows Firewall under "Manage security settings for:", select the Exceptions tab, click "Add Port...", and then enter a name (anything - I picked "Minecraft") and 25565 for the port number. The instructions for this would be similar, though different, for other Windows versions, commercial firewall products, etc. Also (2), I believe only users with premium Minecraft accounts will be able to connect to a remote server.
