Does anyone actually have one and running? I want to discuss mods and/or upgrades. I'm a little disheartened that no one responded to another post I made so I'm going to believe I'm working on a piece of hardware no one uses or cares about.

I want a better video card. I've heard there are 1GB nvidia GT 120 cards that work, but I would like something better.

If not, I am fine using it to run my Windows Server 2019 DC as a VM on it, and a minecraft server. But I was hoping to get more out of it.

Very very very very very very (is that enough);)...few consumer users (average home or business user...the primary user group here on Mac-Forums) would have ever owned one of these...and may not even know what one would look like...let alone have one...and have suggestions what to do with it.

But...an XServe 3,1 is basically very similar to a 2009 8-core Mac Pro...so maybe the more main stream question would be...what to do with a 2009 8-Core Mac Pro?:)

So it's spring break where I am and I wanted to build a minecraft server for the kids.

(I have done sys admin for years but i have never used this app before.)

So I created a Ubuntu 20.04 server loaded, Bedrock server on to it.

I can now log in and play with my kids but now they want to open the server to the outside world so they can play with their cousins and friends.

is there any guides out there on how to securely setup the server? I don't want people to join that are not people we know, as well as me being the i think the term is OP so people can't change gamemodes on my kids.

Any help with this would greatly be appreciated!!!

As stated, not many folks around here have experience this machine, we have experience with the consumer level devices. So you might want to look into other user groups that are catering to the older Macs.
