An easy approach I've found to let my mates hook up with my Minecraft server, which is operating by myself machine is to make use of a free device referred to as ngrok to expose my server to the internet.
1) Download ngrok from http://www.ngrok.com. You'll need to signup for a free account as well, and comply with their setup directions.
2) Begin your Minecraft server
3) To share your native Minecraft server, run the next in a terminal:
4) This may display some info, with a line like the next:
Write down the number that is where the XXXXX is above.
5) Your server is now out there on the internet! However how do your folks connect to it?
6) Tell your folks to begin Minecraft, then
- click "Multiplayer"
- click on "Direct Join"
Fill in the next, changing XXXXX the number you wrote down in step 4)
7) They need to now be linked to your Minecraft server!
TROUBLESHOOTING: Observe - if it doesn't work, then as a substitute of "Direct Join", add it as a server by selecting "Add Server", then provide ngrok.com:XXXXX. minecraft Then simply connect with the server that manner as an alternative!
