Connecting with your friends' networks

O Minecraft provides a multiplayer mode through connection via local network. This means that your friend needs to be connected to the same network as you (in other words, the same internet).
Luckily for us, there are programs called “VPNs”That simulate local networks, so even if your friend is several kilometers away, you can still play with him.

🔴 Have you ever dreamed of developing games?

So I have some excellent news for you!
In just one course you learn how to:

➡ Create more than 25 complete games (2D and 3D).
➡ Master 4 different engines (Unity, Unreal, Godot and Game Maker).
➡ Create your own game engine.
➡ Learn to program from absolute zero.
➡ Publish your game in the biggest stores (if you want).

And much more!

In addition, you have the incredible benefits of studying with Danki. Including a 30-day armored warranty: O

1. Installing and configuring the VPN

For this tutorial, we will make use of a VPN called Radmin VPN. Download and install the VPN on your machine.

Select the language:

Selecting the language in the radmin vpn installer to play minecraft online with your friends
Select the installation language (Portuguese).

Accept the terms of use and click "install":

Installer screen where the terms of the contract will be accepted and radmin installed.
You must access the terms of the contract in the installer to be able to install.

After installing, open the program. Note that Radmin has a VPN “on / off” button. To start configuring and using, it is necessary to click this button to turn it on:

Radmin home screen off.
Click the red button to turn on the radmin.

After clicking on the red button, Radmin will turn on and the button will turn green.

We now have two options: we can create a network for your friends to connect to, or we can connect to an existing network.

2. Creating a local network using the VPN and opening a Server in Minecraft

To create a network just click on “Network” and click on “Create new network”:

Enter a name and password for the created network and click on “create”:

Creating the vpnmarriedgames network for the network.

There, now you've created a local network simulator that can be shared with your friends.

Now let's create a server on Minecraft for your friends to access. Open Minecraft and choose the world you want to play with your friends, and enter singleplayer mode (alone):

Minecraft home screen
It is necessary to access singleplayer mode to create a server to play minecraft multiplayer.

Right after the map is loaded, open the Options Menu by pressing the "ESC" key and click "Open to LAN". This is where we open a Local Area Network - LAN, that is, the local network to play with our friends:

To create the server, we click on open to lan. (lan: local area network).

We select settings for other players, such as the game mode (survival, creative, etc.), and we can also choose whether to allow other players to use Cheats. To finish, click on “Start LAN World”:

Settings to open the lan to play minecraft online

The game port will be shown on the game's Chat screen (if the screen disappears, just press the “T” key). This information is very important, as it is with it that your friends will connect to your server.

The game chat shows the port being used for the lan connection.

Your friends should connect using the IP that is on your Radmin and the minecraft port separated by colons. Following the example of the tutorial, the path to the server would be: “26.160.131.11:65505”. Below we will explain how to connect to the server that was created.

3. Connecting to a local network using VPN and logging on to a Server in Minecraft

First, we need to connect to the created VPN. Let's access Radmin VPN and click on “Network” and then on “Join existing network”:

Radmin screen showing the way to join an existing network
You can directly click on “join the network” if you have never accessed one.

Then enter the network information, the password and click "enter":

Connecting to a local network on radmin
Logging into vpnmarriedgames' local network.

Now that you are connected to your friend's local network. Note that he has an IP address next to his name. It is this set of numbers that we will use to connect to the Minecraft server, as well as the door that it opened in the game.

Radmin connected to the vpn and showing the user and friend's ip.
Your friend's ip appears next to the nickname on radmin. You can right click to copy the ip

Now open Minecraft and click on “Multiplayer”:

Minecraft main screen
You need to click on “multiplayer” to enter a server.

Then click on “add server” to add the server created for your friend:

The image shows the list of connected servers and the buttons to enter the server, enter the server, add to the server, edit the server, delete the server, refresh the screen and return to the previous menu.
On this screen you add the servers. You can also add a new server or connect directly.

Here we will enter a name for the server and the IP and the port to access the server (IP: Port). In the example below, we use the friend's IP in Admin and a port that was created by the friend to access the server:

Image showing editing information from a server to access a server.
To separate the ip from the port, use: (colon)

If you entered the information correctly, the server will now appear in the list of multiplayer servers. Now just click on the server and click on “Join Server”:

The image shows the list of connected servers and the buttons to enter the server, enter the server, add to the server, edit the server, delete the server, refresh the screen and return to the previous menu.
Note that the server is connected because there is a green bar that shows how strong the connection is.

It may happen that the firewall blocks the creation of a LAN network. If this happens, just disable the firewall and enable it as soon as you finish playing.

Ready! Now you can enjoy with your friends online, create great buildings, venture into survival modes, add mods, texture packs and maps to play together, like maps of Among Us, Sky Block, among many other maps that exist and are available to play.

More about Minecraft

Minecraft is an electronic game sandbox of survival created by Swedish developer Markus “Notch” Persson and later developed and published by Mojang Studios, whose intellectual property was obtained by Microsoft in 2014. Initially launched in May 2009 as a project under development, its full launch took place in November 2011 for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Linux, and subsequently re-released for a wide variety of platforms. It is the best-selling game of all time, selling more than 200 million copies on all platforms as of May 2020, with more than 126 million monthly active players.

Em Minecraft, players intentionally explore a three-dimensional open world in blocks, pixelated and procedurally generated, being able to discover and extract raw materials, handcrafted tools, build structures or earthworks and, depending on the game mode, can combat computer controlled enemies, as well as cooperate or compete against other players in the same world. These modes include a survival mode, in which the player needs to acquire resources to build the world and stay alive, and a creative mode, where players have unlimited resources. In Java Edition, players can modify the game with mods to create new game mechanics, items, textures, and more.

Minecraft is critically acclaimed, winning several awards and being considered as one of the best and most influential games of all time. MineCon's social networks, parodies, adaptations, merchandise and annual conventions played a key role in popularizing the game. It has also been used in educational environments, especially in the field of computer systems, since virtual computers and hardware were built on it. Multiple titles spin off have also been developed, such as Minecraft: Story Mode (2015) Minecraft Earth (2019) and Minecraft Dungeons (2020).
