Want to make your Minecraft server available to your friends, but want to make sure you do so without exposing your home network to the Internet? remote.it is an Enterprise service that enables secure remote access, without needing to use port forwarding or complex configuration. Even better, it’s free for personal use.
NOTE: The remote.it desktop application has been updated since this video was made. The overall process is the same, but the buttons in the app have moved around a bit. Updated instructions can be found here: https://docs.remote.it/applications/hosting-a-minecraft-server
