Tutorials/Hide Multiplayer Server IP

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Are you worried about people seeing your SMP server IP while you are recording/streaming? Watch the video below, it will teach you how to hide your server IP's without any mods: In this tutorial you edit your hosts file to add a hostname to an ipaddress. This allows you to record a video with no ipaddress showing and no one is able to look it up unless they have your hosts file.

In windows the hosts file is located

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\ect\hosts

Add an ipaddress like this

127.0.0.2<TAB>coolserver

be sure to actually use the tab character, do not simply type <TAB>

Replace 127.0.0.2 with the numeric ipaddress of your server.

Replace coolserver with any name you want; no spaces

Additionally since the 1.3.2 update the F1 key will toggle showing server addresses in the server list.
