First introduced

Java Edition 1.3.1 (12w24a)

Opens singleplayer world to the local network.

Syntax[edit]

publish [<port>]

Arguments[edit]

<port>

The port to host on, between 0 and 65535. If not specified, a random port above 1024 is chosen.

Result[edit]

This command appears in the singleplayer cheats. Cannot be used on a multiplayer server.

Fails if the world is already published to LAN, or if the port could not be bound (e.g. a reserved port, or already in use by another application).

On success, opens your singleplayer game for LAN friends to join.
