How to setup BungeeCord

Note: For this tutorial, we will be using 4 servers to serve as an example of setting up a BungeeCord server.
      BungeeCord - (Contains the BungeeCord jar file that directs players to correct server)
      Hub - (Contains the physical hub with portals to servers. Ex: Survival, Creative, etc.)
      Survival - (One server connected to the Hub)
      Creative - (One server connected to the Hub)

How to setup BungeeCord:
1. Stop all servers.

Remove all server files on your BungeeCord server.

3. Download the Official BungeeCord.jar here.

4. Upload the BungeeCord.jar file to your BungeeCord server. 

5. Click Open Jar Menu then select Custom>BungeeCord.

6. Click Save.

7. Start then Stop your server.

8. In your File Manager, open config.yml and change the host: config to the IP of your BungeeCord server. (Ex: "Host:")

9. Add/modify servers under the servers: config. It should look something like this.

10. Change the online-mode to false in the of every server linked to BungeeCord except the BungeeCord server itself.

11. Install IPWhitelist on every server linked to BungeeCord except the BungeeCord server itself. This allows connections to be made only through the BungeeCord server.

12. Start all servers.

How to setup IP Forwarding:
Purpose: IP Forwarding allows you to IP ban players when connected through a BungeeCord server. Be default, BungeeCord doesn't support IP bans because every player shares the same IP when connected. Follow these steps to set up IP Forwarding:
1. On the BungeeCord server, open the config.yml file and set ip_forward: to true. (Ex: "ip_forward:true")

2. On all servers besides the BungeeCord server, open the Spigot.yml config and set bungeecord to true. (Ex: "bungeecord:true")
