How do I connect to a Valheim server?

ImportantThe easiest way is to join directly in the game via IP in the serverlist.

  1. Copy the IP of your server at “Settings” “Status”.
  2. Open Valheim
  3. Click on JOIN, below the serverlist you will find a button titled “Join IP”
  4. Important: Please use the port with the 0 at the end (e.g. 28001 -> 28000)
  5. Now you will be directly connected to your server

Another method is to join the server with the IP by using the Steam “Favourites” list . For this option, you need the queryport, which has the 1 at the end (28000 -> 28001). Make sure that you refresh the steam list once before connecting. Here is a short explanatory video:
