    Hello,

    This message keeps appearing whenever I try to go into a group server I'm on and all the fixes for this problem have only been available for PC not Xbox. Any help is wanted at this point

    Thanks

    Minecraft: "You need to authenticate to Microsoft services"

    Hi!

    --------------------

    Update: I tried login when iPAD was connected to another network (used my cellphone 4G) and it worked to sign in.

    So there is something that is blocking connection (on WiFI) to Microsoft Account over iPAD from inside Minecraft.

    As described in #4 below I have tried to open up all ports I can find from readi
    ng but no luck.Please advice; What are the ports used by Microsoft account in Minecraft on iPAD?

    --------------------

    I have recently purchased Minecraft on iPad but I am unable to play online due to problems connecting to Microsoft Account in game.


    I am trying to setup so that me, my daughter and some of her friends can play together online.

    Problem Description

    I am unable to play on online servers or connect to any minecraft realms.
    I am able to log into my Microsoft account in the game, or at least my GamerTag shows, but when trying to connect to a server I get the error message:

    "You need to authenticate to Microsoft services".

    Minecraft Realms are no able to load either with the error message:

    "We could not connect to Realms right now. We will try again soon"

    So I am able to play offline and on LAN but not online due to the errors above.

    Microsoft account that I use runs without any restrictions (no children block of online play)

    What I have tried

    #1 I have confirmed that I can login to the Microsoft account with the Xbox app on the iPad so the credentials are valid.

    #2 I have tried switching to a secondary Microsoft account but with the same erroneous result.

    #3 I can login to the online servers from my Windows machine that runs on same home network and my network connection is otherwise stable.

    #4 UPnP is enabled on router and I anyway opened xbox live port on router specifically (even though it should not be needed as I can login over the xbox live app), but same error.

    •Port 88 (UDP)

    •Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)

    •Port 500 (UDP)

    •Port 3544 (UDP)

    •Port 4500 (UDP)

    Updated: I also updated port forward to include:

    UDP: 53, 1863, 3075, 16000

    TCP: 53, 80, 1863, 3075, 16000


    #5 Started hosting an online server with exact version as the IPadOS bedrock version, but same error.

    System Info

    Minecraft version: 1.14.30 (updated to latest)

    iPad 10.2 7thGen

    iPadOS 13.4

    I would really appreciate some support in order to get this working.

    I am happy to provide additional information on request.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Forjo!

    The problem I am experiencing is not related to the bedrock server.

    As the problem description states, this problem is about connecting to Microsoft account and is not related to the bedrock_server I am running locally. Problem is the same when trying to login to Microsoft account in general when using the IPAD on the WIFI.

    Thanks

    The Bedrock server executable must be run with administrator permissions.

    Right-click bedrock_server.exe

    Click Properties

    Click Compatibility

    Click Change settings for all users

    Click to select "Run this program as an administrator"

    Click OK twice.
