I’ve got the minecraft server up and running and can connect to it locally. I’ve also got WinSCP set up so can edit server files if required.
Two things I’ve yet to get worked out though:
How to set the game mode to Creative. I used WinSCP to update the ‘gamemode’ setting in server.properties to ‘creative’ and rebooted the device but it’s still in survival mode.
Is there any way to make a publicly available server more secure? A little background required here. My intention is to set up a server for my daughter’s birthday and have her cousins be able to login from their house. I have the server running publicly but is there any way to ensure that only the people I want can access it? Last thing I need is 3 kids getting griefed on a birthday minecraft party
