    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 ...

    Tutorials/Setting up a server – Official Minecraft Wiki

    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,

    Minecraft for Windows 10 won't let me connect to any external servers

    Windows 10 won't let me connect to any game servers.

    Hi Phoebe,

    There are several possible reasons as to why you can't connect to the server in Minecraft on Windows 10. This could be due to a corrupted game file on your computer that affects you to connect to the server. Let's try to isolate the issue by performing the
    following methods below:

    Method 1: Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter from this link
    to fix update errors.   

    Method 2: Make sure that your Firewall or anti-virus is not blocking the app. To check your firewall settings, you can refer to this
    link. 

    Method 3: Reset Windows Store to clear store cache.

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard.   
    • Click on Command prompt (Admin).   
    • Type wsreset.exe, and then hit Enter.

    Method 4: Restart your computer and reinstall the game.

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested methods above.
