For those of you still wondering what Minecraft is check out the following video below.

Play Minecraft through TOR

This little how-to is more of a way to pass socks proxy parameters to a java app, however my focus here is on doing this with the Java game Minecraft over the TOR Network.

Why you ask? Because I wanted to know if it was possible and if I could do it.

Items Needed:

  1. Minecraft Account
  2. Java Installed (Latest Version)
  3. Minecraft installed and up to the current date.
  4. Windows OS – I’m using Windows 8 at this time

Open notepad and add the following values into it:
cd C:Program Files (x86)Javajre7bin
java -DsocksProxyHost= -DsocksProxyPort=9050 –Xmx1024m -jar Minecraft.exe

The above will work with any SOCKS proxy and not limited to TOR. I am using the above as these are the defaults to TOR

Save the file at TOR-Minecraft.bat and run it. If all work as planned you will see the console open followed by the Minecraft UI. You can now connect to any remote server and you should be passing all your data through the TOR network.

Minecraft @ jermsmit.com

I recently been introduced to the world of minecraft. It seems that my two nephews and daughter are very interested in playing this game. So why not build a server and host it so they can have hours of enjoyment. Best of all its a place where they can bend the rules to work for them, also a way for me as the administrator and keep things under control.

This server is open to everyone; and closed to those who cross my lines of wrong & right.

So feel free to connect to jermsmit.com via minecraft and enjoy.

*note this is a vanilla server
