so I went to minecraft download then I saw that you can make a server so I ran the program and sent my computers ip to my servers ip then I went to minecraft and pasted the ip in but it will not work what did I do wrong
I need this soon
If you want to join your server, the ip is LOCALHOST.
The IP is actually 127.0.0.1. The name "localhost" is the name used to refer to your own computer from itself. While they can be interchanged in most situations, it is important to know the difference between them.
When trying to connect to yourslef, it is better to use the IP address rather then the name because the IP of 127.0.0.1 is literally programmed to ONLY refer to yourself, and nothing can change that. Where as Localhost is a name and technically can be tampered with to refer to a different IP address.
