To let other people play, Tell your friends the name and ip address of your server. The server app has to be open.

Whenever I change the IP address it can't connect, is that a problem?

Go on launchpad, click on "Other", then click on the app "TextEdit". Alternatively, press Command-Space which opens a search bar that you can search the app.
