How to enable Online/Offline Mode on your server

Running your server in offline mode allows players to connect without authenticating with the Minecraft session servers. Authenticating with the Minecraft session servers ensures that a player is connecting with a registered and paid Minecraft account. Running your server in offline mode can be useful when there are the Minecraft session servers have problems and prevent players from connecting. However, it introduces security risks, as it allows anyone to use any username to join your server. For example, one would be able to login as any white listed player, or as an op and run all administrator commands.

Due to the security risks of running a server in offline mode, we only recommend it if you trust all players on your server and know exactly what you're doing. If you decide to enable it temporarily, be sure to re-enable it and/or stop your server when you're not using it.
