    Same here. I would like to use portals to connect with different worlds.

    Please dear mojang team!

    I would love that as well!  I have one son who likes to play in survival mode and another who likes to be more creative and I don't want to have to run two computers to have two servers.  Thanks!

    Any response ? Java edition has 3 slots for worlds (plus mini) in a realm. Bedrock currently only has 1. Any feedback on whether / when our $7.99 / month will support the same number of worlds as Java?

    In Bedrock Edition you can make 2 different servers with different ports (example: one server with port 9000, another server with port 9002), this means that you can have about as many worlds as your computer can handle.

    Before official support, you could run multiple server instances. If you use Docker, this is much easier. You'd then end up maybe mapping different port numbers and connecting to them that way. Alternatively, you could create new IP addresses to use, but it would be more involved -- especially if you're not taking about a local area network.

    For example, I run a bedrock server using a Docker image I found off Docker Hub on my home server that sits in a rack in a closet. I could simply run multiple instances of that (with different names) and connect to the one I want...But itd be hard to share with my friends. I do have a VPN set up, so I could let them connect to that so they are then on the LAN. Otherwise, to NAT multiple IPs, I'd have to reserve more IP addresses from my internet provider which is costly. So then I guess host a server in the cloud, but again, comes with a cost that I'm avoiding by hosting at home.

    So you may want to use the Docker trick and map multiple ports. Then you just need to specify the host/domain/IP with a : ... Maybe annoying but could help save some money in the short term.

    @tnmphoenix.
    Correct you can have multiple servers using docker. However I find that the dedicated server only works on the default port. So each container needs to map out a different external port to the internal default port for it to work. Then you need your router to open a port and forward traffic to the containers external port. Then with a ddns service like DuckDNS or No-ip, you can get your friends to access your server through the ddns hostname and router open port.
    It would be great to have a lobby function in the bedrock dedicated server.
    Version 1.14 of the dedicated server works very well. We recently had8 people on ours to kill the Ender Dragon. Worked like a charm.

    You can, in fact, run two servers on the same computer, if it does not work, maybe you will need to set up a virtual machine to host the second server.

    I'm running multiple worlds on my Bedrock Dedicated Server, on Windows 10. No docker containers.
    There are two issues you have to deal with that may be causing your issues

    1 - if the first server you start uses a different port than 19132, it will grab the port you specify, and 19132, stopping additional worlds from using the 19132 port. Start the server using 19132 first to avoid this.
    2 - the server software is not very good at advertising the server so xBoxes and other devices that don't let you enter the server manually can connect. Sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't, and when it does work, it's usually only for the server using the 19132 port.

    Would be great to have a MineOS style web console and server management with pretty seemless multi-world instance management.

    I saw your comment about running multiple worlds on a Bedrock Server.  Can you point me to a guide or something that explains how to do that please?

     

    I have figured out how to setup a Bedrock server with a single world and 'imported' a creative world my kids had been playing on with me via LAN for awhile.  So now, I just start the server computer and that server starts and that world is available.  But now, I want to be able to have more worlds than just the 1.  It seems like I cannot have multiple worlds based on many comments I read, but I see my kids joining servers where they walk through a portal or push a button and go to a different world.  I'd also be fine with having more than 1 server running if that's the way to do it.

    I was able to get a separate server working on Ubuntu by making an entirely new server folder (i.e. unpacking the zip file of the server download) and then running the executable file for the new folder at the same time as the first. Not entirely sure if the same will work on Windows 10, but I hope it helps!

    I've set up two directories for two servers.  The one at the default ports are found ok as Friends Worlds on all phones on the LAN.  The other, next port-number pair higher, is not.  I have not tried adding them as Servers yet. Tomorrow morning maybe.  Also, what are the second port numbers, outbound sockets? --Barry (Arkaig1, ish it seems)
