Introduction: How to Make a Minecraft PE Server

Picture of How to Make a Minecraft PE Server

Before this one, I made an instructable on how to make a server on the computer, and it got more views than I expected, so I decided to make an instructable on how to make a server on Minecraft PE. Unfortunately, as far as I know, this will only work with idevices. So my apologies for you androiders. Anyway, all you will need is your router and your idevice. You will also need to know the username and password, which is usually found on the router.

Step 1: Wi-Fi Network

First, find the Wi-Fi network you are on currently and click the blue arrow beside it. Also, you'll probably want to make this on your own Wi-Fi network, not like some McDonalds network, because, again, you'll need to know your routers information, and McDonalds probably won't hand that out. After you press that blue button, memorize your IP address and router address. You'll need these for the next step.

Step 2: Safari

Next, go on safari, and in the address bar, and type in your routers' address. You'll see a page asking you to login. Type in the username and password of your router in those blanks. Follow the video instructions. Then, find out your IP address.

Step 3: Starting the Server

Next go into any MCPE world, and type in your IP address. Give it out to some friends and all they have to do is type in your IP and they can join you. Unlike MCPC servers, if you are not playing on your server, then no one else can join. So to have people join, you will also need to be playing.

Step 4: Conclusion

So now you now how to make a MCPE server. If you have any questions or comments, leave them below. If you want to know how to make a server on MCPC edition, just look at my other instructable, by clicking on my profile. Remember to like and subscribe and hope this helped.

I have 3 easy steps for anyone to do it.

1) Install Bluestacks on a computer with a followup to Minecraft: Pocket Edition.

2) Enable port forwarding* to the device with firewall settings configured properly.

3) Give your I.P. address to the people you wish to join your server.

*Be aware, port forwarding is an advanced user step. If you have any questions or comments as to how to do this, you may message me at and I will give you a detailed analysis on how this is done. I will be posting a video in the near future on how to do this as well.

Does anyone else have the problem that it says that my new server, with nobody in it is full? I also realised afterwards step one and two are very risky, opening up chances for potential attackers.

Please reply if you can relate, have a comment or a solution.

how do you find out your router password and username? Please reply if you know how. Thanks in advance!

You have to install wifi analyser to find that out.

RileyL15 (author)PonytaGaming.2017-12-22

no you don't it's in the settings (but you probably have to on your device)

Can you make a website so we can create a server website about our server and get ranks and vote for w/e?

Aggiefrance (author)2017-01-31

I could set it up, but is it secure?

animalgamer87 (author)2017-01-29

I have a question. Do you make your own router address or do you need a certain one because it's a little confusing to me.

IT_IS_DOGGY (author)2017-01-20

U need to make a different website for this."something easier"

mmiljan901 (author)2017-01-16

What do you mean by ,,Next, go on Safari''?

if your on an android device then you won't understand but on an apple device it's basically the same as chrome ?

EpicBrosYt (author)2016-10-23

how do you get your username and password

Absolute0 (author)EpicBrosYt2016-11-19

To find your user and password, type in the search bar: "portforward router passwords" and hit enter. Go to the one labeled Router and scroll down until you see your router company. Click it and scroll down and your default router username and password should be next to your router model.
