Hey Guys- MInecraft server question
So, I haven't been on in a a while, but because I'm taking another programming class I decided to come back on, at least for a little bit

Anyway, while I'm on, I've been trying to do something with a minecraft server for a while, but haven't been able to. So, I live in a rural area, and it’s so rural that there is no broadband cable whatsover that reaches my house. So, for a while, we used dial-up, but then we switched to mobile broadband from Sprint. Using that, it is miles faster, but we have a limited allotment of download/uploads per month, so we have to limit ourselves in no youtube videos, minecraft servers, etc.

However, one thing that our internet does have going for it is that it is mobile, and therefore it takes the form of a black box that we can take anywhere. Also, it has a little slot in it that you insert an SD card into, and therefore can store files in it that any comuputer connected to the wifi it emits can access. This use of it does not take up any of our usage per month, which means we can print things using a wireless printer from any computer in our house, and access certain files from any computer in our house.

Anyway, the point of this post is this: Would I be able to set up Minecraft server using this “local” connection that any computer that is hooked up the the wifi could use? And how, as I have never set up a Minecraft server before.

Minecraft Server Setup

Check that out and see if helps you.

I've never heard of minecraft before; what does it do?

or, you may follow, my handly little guide I created. It's a bit outdated when it comes to version but the main point is still given and still works:


and also, to whatever person just asked what minecraft is: [url][/url]

I already have an over-internet server set up, I need to know how to transfer it to the local connection of my mobile broadband box.

Or you can just create a computer-computer VPN.
