Info from another conversation:

In most Linux distros to get your gateway (most likely your router in a simple home setup), use "route -n" and read the info that is displayed.

Code: Select all
user@somelinux:~$ route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface         UG    100    0        0 eth1   U     0      0        0 eth1   U     0      0        0 eth4

In the example above the gateway for eth1 is

To find the IP for your adapter (eth1), use "ifconfig eth1"

Code: Select all
ifconfig eth1
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 10:20:fb:26:42:f4
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: ef30::290:faff:fb06:21f3/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:331344 errors:0 dropped:14 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:176388 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:210806852 (210.8 MB)  TX bytes:22221983 (22.2 MB)

From the above I know that I need to log into my router ( and create a port forward from there to my server ( and include the port that I defined in my Minetest configuration file (ex: 30000).

You'll need to figure out how to log into your router and set the port forwarding (and that usually can be done by Googling "<model of router> port forward".

Hy guys, I wannah know how can I make a Minetest server in easy way more detalied! I saw a tutorial but I can't understand where to put portforward and where I can config the server. I've got a Minecraft server and in server folder write "pvp=true players=20 " where I can put my IP and more stuff about it!! :D This is the tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZFysVkTxAc! :)

JUST GO TO minetesthosting.com sign up for the free plan or any paid plans "free plan does not require credit card info." then go to my worlds tab then create a world. make name, default privs, its self explanatory really. then BAMMMM!!!!! YOU HAVE A SERVER!!!!!!!!!!! ALL YOU NEED IS EMAIL AND CREATE A PASSWORD DONE. AND NO NEED TO KEEP YOUR COMPUTER RUNNING THE SERVER IS RAN BY THE SITE. LOG IN ANYWHERE ANYTIME TO CHECK ON YOUR SERVER. DO COMMANDS, BAN, KICK AND ALL THE GOOD STUFF. ALSO PLAY IT FROM ANY MINETEST CLIENT. ITS LIKE A SERVER CREATION FOR DUMMIES:D i tried it out and it works good. but i do perfer getting at least the $5 plan if your going to use their site. otherwise you just have basic mods on it. and their wont be any mods to use to protect things like your spawn town buildings.....so.....$5 plan recommended. but you can always just use the free one. GOOD LUCK.
