1. Forward the port you're using. Google "port forwarding".
2. To make it appear in the server list, check the "public" checkbox.

Set public_serverlist in minetest.conf to true.

yes, but it doesn't read it from there. it didn't even exist there in the first place. all that was there was the world.

~minetest/minetest.conf.example => copy minetest.conf.example to minetest.conf => edit minetest.conf => start your server

For appear in public_server_list, copy the lines at the bottom of this page : http://www.minetest.net/servers

And, don't forgot to forward the port...
