I have recently bought the newest Minecraft. That would be Minecraft Windows 10 Edition.
Like it and have been attempting to setup a Server.
These are the steps I took in an stab to get this up and in good working order.
Went out to the Minecraft here.
Following that buried down to the downloads and got minecraft_server 1.11.2.jar
Unpacked this in a folder I made called "Minecraft" on my Windows 10 Pro desktop.
Updated the ELUA reran the java file and generated all the other needed folders.
At this point I can see that the server is up and running.
stop the server updated the IP in the Servers document that I am opening with Text editor to match my machine IP.
Then pulled up my router added the needed port of 25565 and computer IP for both internal and external connections in the port forwarding.
Turned back on the server at this point and tested that I am broadcasting with http://www.canyouseeme.org/ Everything checked out.
Lastly went out to my Windows Firewall and turned on the function to have Java TM Platform SE Binary is allowed on both Public and Private.
When I attempt to connect to the server in game it never detects.
Where is the issue at or do I have the wrong version and how do I get the new server install to make my own so I do not have to pay to play?
