Makes hosted Bedrock/MCPE servers show up as LAN servers, specifically for Xbox.
You can now play on remote servers (not Realms!) on your Xbox with friends.
Download and run it. It's that easy.
Open up a command prompt or terminal to the location where you downloaded it.
Usage: ./proxy <server-ip> Options: -bind string Bind address and port (default "0.0.0.0:19132")
Connect to a server at IP
$ ./proxy 220.127.116.11:19132
Same as above but bind to a specific local IP:
$ ./proxy -bind 10.0.0.5:19132 18.104.22.168:19132
Makefile builds for Windows, macOS, and Linux, including x86 and ARM.
How does this work?
On Minecraft platforms that support LAN servers, the game will broadcast a server ping packet to every device on the same network and display any valid replies as connectable servers. This tool runs on your computer - desktop, laptop, Raspberry Pi, etc. - and pretends to be a LAN server, acting as a proxy, passing all traffic from your game through your computer and to the server (and back), so that Minecraft thinks you're connected to a LAN server, but you're really playing on a remote server. As soon as you start it up, you should see the fake server listed under LAN and, upon selecting it, connect to the real Bedrock/MCPE server hosted elsewhere.
For an optimal experience, run this on a device that is connected via ethernet and not over WiFi, since a wireless connection could introduce some lag. Your game device can be connected to WiFi. Your remote server can be running on a computer, a VM, or even with a Minecraft hosting service.
- This tool should work on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
- ARM builds are available for Raspberry Pi and similar SOCs.
- Only Minecraft for Windows 10, iOS/Android, and Xbox are currently supported.
- PS4 and Nintendo Switch do not support this functionality.
Note that you almost definitely need to create a firewall rule for this to work. On macOS, you'll be prompted automatically. On Windows, you may need to go into your Windows Firewall settings and open up port 19132 (UDP).
