How to Quickly Join Your Terraria Server
Start Terraria on Steam
Start the game on Steam, and wait for the title screen to appear.
Click "Multiplayer" on the title screen for Terraria
Click "Join via IP"
Select your Player Character
On the following screen, create a new character or select one of your existing characters.
As soon as you select a character, it will go to the next screen.
Enter IP address of your Server
Enter the IP address for your server where the blinking cursor bar appears. The IP for your server will be shown on the
Overview tab of the Nodecraft control panel, below all the graphs displaying CPU and RAM usage.
If you have previously entered an IP address on this screen, it will be shown directly below the blinking cursor bar, in gray text. You can click on any of those links to go straight to that server (as long as that server is actually running).
Confirm Port Number
On the next screen, it will ask you to confirm the port number. The default port used is
7777, and if you have not changed it to something else, simply click
The screen will show "Connecting to," followed by the IP address, and you be connected to the server!
You'll appear in the game, and now it's time to run from the slimes!
