Part 1: Setup Server


Obtain the minecraft server jar file.


Create a listing referred to as ‘server’ and drag the jar file in there.


Make a command file


To make it straightforward to start your server, we're going to create a ‘start.command’ file. Double clicking this file will launch your server.


Open TextEdit (/Purposes/TextEdit).


Set the format to plain text.


Copy in the next textual content.

Make this command executable by opening a terminal (/Purposes/Terminal) and typing


chmod a+x


with a space after it. Drag and drop the beginning.command file into the terminal window and then press enter.


Double click the start server to begin the server.


If all works a brand new server window will open and you will note several errors about missing files and directories - don’t fear this is ok.


Congrats! You’ve setup the server. Next we are going to configure Time Capsule so your server runs for everyone on your community.

Troubleshooting server setup


Unable to access jarfile error


If you bought ‘Unable to access jarfile’ when double clicking the beginning.command file,

and changing the filename to be correct (be sure you get the numbers, in my case, 1.7.4 included in the file name).


Rich-text-format error


If your textual content file keeps desirous to rename itself start.rtf, it’s because you haven’t made the text file ‘plain textual content format’. Go over the directions again above, and make this file plain text format.

You may have your mom or dad for this step (because it would require Time Capsule password).


Open System Preferences > Community


Click the advanced button in the decrease proper hand nook. After which the ‘TCP/IP’ tab.

Change the IP address to 10.0.1.x, the place x might be any quantity from 1 to 100.


Word the address you kind right here: 10.0.1.x. You're going to need it later after we setup the Airport Utility


Hit Okay and return to ‘System Preferences.

Now go to the ‘Sharing’ section of System Preferences and make sure that Internet Sharing is on.


Do that by first clicking on ‘USB Ethernet’


After which double clicking ‘Internet Sharing’ on the left hand side. When it asks you if you actually want to enable Web Sharing say ‘OK’.


Now, open up AirPort Utility and edit your Time Capsule settings.


Click the Time Capsule picture after which the ‘Edit’ button within the decrease proper.


Go under Community and make sure the option Router Mode is set to DHCP and NAT. Now, click on the + button below the Port Settings.


Kind in the following:

- Non-public IP Handle: The handle you chose for the 4th step.


Change all the things with the phrase port in it to 25565.


It ought to look one thing like this now.


Now hit ‘Update’ and replace the Time Capsule.


Okay. At Best minecraft servers need to be good.
You have got a server.
You've gotten a router that knows about your server and won’t strive to vary your IP address.
Subsequent we are going to setup the native consumer.
After which after that the internet shopper.
