    Adding Support to Connect to External Servers Via IP Address - Minecraft


    I've been playing Minecraft for upwards of 8 years now, and I've played on Pocket edition, PC, and Xbox. The one gripe I've had with it, however, has to do with the Xbox version (NOT Xbox edition, just Minecraft on the Xbox) not having support for connecting to external servers via IP address. I host a small server for just my friends and I (max of around 40-50 people), and we would exceed the player limit when playing on a regular world or realm, so switching to this is not an option. The BDS server that I host works fine for everyone playing on PC and mobile, but people who own the game on Xbox can't play with us. I have seen online that having this feature could pose a security issue for the consoles, so maybe this could be a feature that is disabled by default and can be enabled "at the users own risk" or something along those lines. I feel like it is just as much of a security threat to have people installing or trying to use third-party applications to attempt to connect to servers. This, however, is just my opinion, and if there is anything important as to why this cant work or why it isn't in place, I would like to know, as I couldn't find too many good reasons online.



    Thanks,

    -Jake

    Adding Support to Connect to External Servers Via IP Address - Minecraft

    i run a minecraft server and for my kids to access it via xbox one they require the ip, thats it, even their friends join, basically only people i trust. but yes you can use an ip only. on minecraft for xbox, phone, switch, playstation and pc.

    i use the bedrock server software.

    Friends cant join my server but I can through LAN

    you will need your external ip address and input that into the server and then give that ip to your friends. i have a minecraft server running 247 for my kids and their friends.

    My Friends On Xbox Cannont Join My Minecraft Windows 10 Dedicated Server

    they need to enter the server details on the xbox minecraft and they will need your external facing IP address to do this. remember only give people that you know or you will get a headache later for it.

    I host my own minecraft server for my kids and their friends.

    Help needed with IP addresses

    That is great news! :)

    The IP address that shows up on your console's network settings (169.bla.bla.bla) is a link-local address or Auto-IP. It will do so when requesting an IP address via DHCP server fails. I can think of a numerous of things that could have triggered this problem.
    But since this was resolved by simply turning off your console for an hour it would point to fact that the external network adapter was in need for a coffee break or something :)

    Can't Connect to Your DHCP Server

    So I moved the router back in the line of connection and the Xbox connected right away. The switch I have is not capable of operating as a DHCP server.

    I believe the computer worked when the Xbox didn't because the one IP address was assigned to the router which then assigned the computer a dynamic IP address via the wireless connection. When I went to use the computer via the wired connection it worked
    because it hard already had an IP address assigned.

    I wonder if I had hooked the Xbox up via the wireless connection and then went back to the wired connection if it would have worked... Either way, I think the way it is set up now is the best solution because IPs will need to be assigned and reassigned and
    I am guessing that would probably start to cause issues with conflicting addressed down the way.

    Thanks for all the input!
