We walk-through how to build your own Minecraft server & run it for under €10 a month. This video was inspired by one of our kids that required a Minecraft server to play on with friends.

We have hosted the following open Minecraft server should you want to test before building. https://hendcraft.com/hcaws/

Note: The aim is to show you how to build a minecraft server. What we don’t cover in this setup is how to secure the server. Highly recommend that you always follow industry security & hardening standards.

Blocking https sites with IPFire

Got a request from “dedu mihail” & “Amandeep Singh” on how to block https sites. In this quick walk-through we show how to use the proxy with manual settings which is needed to block https urls / sites. It does not work via transparent mode. (We could not find a simple way to make it work via transparent mode).

1. Configure the end user machine to use the proxy.

2. Configure the proxy on IPFire to use the url filter capability.

3. Configure the url filter to block the https url 4. Configure the url filter to allow restriction bypass for listed IP’s.
