Some servers have a "whitelist" that you need to be on to get into the server. These are also called private servers. To get onto a whitelist, you need to contact the people in charge of the server and ask them to add your minecraft name to the whitelist. If they do, you can now connect to the server by using the IP.

How do you kick someone from a Minecraft LAN world?

If you are the OP of the server, then you have commands such as "/kick", "/ban", "/ban-ip", or "/whitelist". /kick simply kicks the player off of the server, it doesn't keep them off the server simply because its only a kick. the syntax for the command is "/kick <username> [reason]". /ban adds the player to the blacklist, kicks them off the server, and keeps them off. The syntax for this command is "/ban <username> [reason]", keep in mind this is permanent until you remove the ban with "/pardon". If you want to do temporary bans then that requires server plugins. These commands are for regular vanilla minecraft. This command only bans the specific username. /ban-ip adds the player's IP to the blacklist, which means when you use this command, he won't be able to log on with any other minecraft accounts that he may have. So this command is kinda like another step up from "/ban". Each server can also have a whitelist to make the server public or private. When the whitelist is disabled the server becomes public, if you enable the whitelist then the server becomes private. Enable Whitelist: "/whitelist on" Disable Whitelist: "/whitelist off" (Disabled by default) Add someone to the whitelist (allows them to enter the server) "/whitelist add <username>" Remove someone from the whitelist "/whitelist remove <username>" List people on the whitelist: "/whitelist list" Reload the Whitelist: "/whitelist reload"
