Step 1: Download Required Server Materials And Create Server Folder

Picture of Download Required Server Materials And Create Server Folder
You will need one out of two things...Either a Bukkit server base or a Vanilla server base...Either one will work but I am going to show you how to set up A Bukkit server because you can do more things with it like use plugins or server mods...

Create a folder where you want to place your server like on your desktop or in your documents then download Bukkit here and place in your server folder. I recommend you download the recommended build and make sure that the Bukkit server is able to run the latest update to Minecraft.

Step 2: Open the Command Prompt and Type "ipconfig"

If you have Windows Vista, 7, or 8 in the search bar type "cmd" and then press enter.
If you have any earlier version of windows the command prompt should be located in your Accessories Folder. 

Once opened type: "ipconfig" and press enter
You will get a bunch of information but all you need to worry about is the current IPv4 address and the default gateway located near the top. If you cannot find what i'm talking about look at the picture.

Step 3: Get Into Router Settings

Open an internet browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome(which I am using) and in the address type your default gateway (as mentioned in the previous step).

Your browser will then ask you for a password, most of the time the password is "password" however there are a few exceptions...if your router password is not "password" look here for your default password.
