How to Find My 'Minecraft' Server's IP Address
Log on to the server's host computer and press 'Windows-X' to launch the power user menu. If you're using a different computer to host the server than you will be to play, you need to perform these steps on the host computer. The IP address of the computer you'll be playing on won't be useful for this process.
Select 'Command Prompt' from the power user menu and enter the 'ipconfig' command when it loads. It may take a moment for your computer to load all the IP information, including the address you need.
Make a note of the 'IPv4 Address,' which is your computer's local IP address. This is the number you'll need to give out to the other players, as well as the IP address you'll need to connect to if you're going to play on a computer other than the host computer.
Start up your 'Minecraft' server software and bring the server online. Once the server is up and running, you need to get in contact with the other players and give them the IP address so that the game can begin.
