The port field should automatically default to 26900. You will not need to change the port unless you've set a different port number then the default of 26900 on your server.
Click the "Connect" button when you are finished entering the IP address.
Server Loading Screen will Appear
You will join the server, and you will see a loading screen, similar to the screenshot below. The client will begin downloading a copy of the world information.
The world download process generally takes longer the first time you join a server, and becomes quicker when rejoining a server.
