    Hi, since there are a lot of questions about setting up a multiplayer server I wanted to make a tutorial. It´s really easy and all you don´t need other programs.

    I´m using Win7 64bit, it should work this way on every Windows system.

    1. Download the newest minecraft_server.exe and save it in a new folder.
    https://minecraft.net/download

    2. execute it!
    server_exe_executed.png
    It should look this way.

    stop.png
    Now type: "stop" and enter. The window should close.

    If you open your folder now you will see those files:
    server_exe.png
    I will get to them later...

    3. Download the map of your choice!
    For example Herobrine´s Mansion
    Then Unzip it! Win7 does this automatically, maybe other Versions, too. If not use 7zip (free) or winrar
    You get a folder:
    stop.png
    In it you will find this:
    folder.png
    4. Replace the files in the world folder with those of your downloaded map

    now you delete everything in the "world"-folder, which you created when running minecraft_ server.exe. Now copy in everything that was in the folder of your downloaded map.

    Make sure the files in the image above are now exactly that was in the world folder and not in a folder in this folder.

    5. Edit the server.properties
    Now we are done, but we have to check the settings before starting.
    go to your server-folder:
    server_exe.png
    Now open server.properties with the editor and change whatever you want.
    often the map-makers recommend certain changes. For example our adventure map:

    hypixel: herobrine´s mansion:
    For more information about the server.properties check http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Server.properties out

    6. Start the minecraft_server.exe and have fun!
    if you start the minecraft_server.exe now it will create the server with the right map and the right rules.

    7. Connect to your server
    Now you have to get on it. If the server is hostet on you computer go in minecraft, multiplayer and choose as server-adress "localhost":
    localhost.png

    If you want to play with others in your LAN you have to give them the ip the server is hosted on:
    go to the commandline and type in: "ipconfig/all" - enter.
    ipconfig.png

    you should find the ip to give the other players in the lan in the form of:
    ipv4: ***.***.***.** for me it is often: 192.168.***.42
    If you want to play online or via hamchi google it, there are enough tutorials out there.


    ____________
    I hope you like it. Please link questions to this in the future in this thread,
    If you have questions or suggestions or found a mistake, feel free to ask.

    Yours, ugster

    You can also use the following command (copy+past it; to paste into the console rightclick inside it and select "Paste"). It will give you a few IPs. Normaly you are looking for an IP not to end with 0 or 1.
    Code:
    ipconfig /all > out.tmp & findstr "IPv4" out.tmp & del out.tmp
    In my case my IP is 192.168.178.23
    Here is what it looks like:
    Code:
    C:\Users\UserName>ipconfig /all > out.tmp & findstr "IPv4" out.tmp & del out.tmp
      IPv4-Adresse  . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.178.23(Bevorzugt)
      IPv4-Adresse  . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.56.1(Bevorzugt)

    So your LAN-IP is 192.168.1.76 I think (the other one looks like an Hamachi IP to me)

    It´s "IPv4" for "IP version 4"
    put your address where?
    Whats in the serverlog ("server.log" file in your server folder)?

    If you want to play over LAN they have to use your local IP. See this post to get it if you are on Windows.
    But if you want to play with friends not at your home you have to use
    a)port forwarding (you have to have access to your router)
    b)hamachi (a program all your friends have to install)

    to a) Just google "How to port forward <nameOfYourRouter>"
    for minecraft you need port 25565 TCP
    They then have to use your public IP (that one normaly changes once a day).
    Get it here: http://www.whatsmyip.org/

    to b) Search on youtube for "Minecraft Hamachi Tutorial" and you´ll find a lot of tutorials

    PS: You can edit your posts
