  1. Can't connect to friend's Minecraft server


    Hello,


    I've been having a hard time connecting to my friend's server on Minecraft Windows 10 Edition. I was able to join the world at one point, but now whenever I try, I just get stuck on "Locating server...". Other people are able to join the world. I tried joining a different world hosted by the same person, and was able to join that. When the world file was transferred to a different host, whose other worlds I was able to join, I still wasn't able to get in. I have tried joining the world both on PC and Xbox, both to no avail. I've restarted the game, restarted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, all of that stuff. I'm really running out of ideas here. Can anyone help me out here?


    Thanks.

    :)

    Homegroup For Minecraft Servers Or What?

    It looks as if the existing minecraft server will use the new system without modification - It needs to be able to access the computers on the network in a two way link, which is the standard for Workgroup and Homegroup

    There is a complete step by step available, if you have any issues ...

    It's not something I have any direct experience with but a quick read suggests to me that you will not need to do Much if any reconfiguration of the existing server

  3. I can't connect to any external servers on Minecraft

    Hey there, Wlinthic

    Is this a public server your trying to join?

    Is it a friend your trying to join?

    I am running a Beta version of Minecraft Windows 10 edition (which is now Minecraft), and I can only see featured servers (Non of my friends play Minecraft), and I can't seem to see a list of other servers unless I use other sites and see if they are open.

    If your entering the information in, such as server IP. Then you will need to ensure that the server address and information has been entered correctly. Otherwise it will not connect.

    Can you post a screen shot of your start screen in Minecraft, please?

    Regards,
