When you make a server, go into server propites and put ture next to whitelist. Then goto the whilist TXT and type in the people you wand to be alowed on the server (incuding you). Or if you and your friend(s) are conneted to the same router, you can make a LAN server bu going to the menu, pressing "open to LAN" and then press "start LAN"
