    no, ether portals don't work in multiplayer. You can change the setting in the server settings but it is hugely bugged.

    Basic newbie guide time!

    First thing's first if you spawn and its night time, get yourself in some shelter. You can do this by digging a hole and blocking the entrance or "borrowing" someone else's hole , the spawn point is very close to ZeroHour's tower so that's a good place to start.

    You will need wood first, so find a tree (plenty of burning tree's near spawn...) and hold down the left mouse button to hack away, you should get 1 item of wood, keep doing that until you get ~12 bits of wood.

    Now you can make some basic tool's, Open your inventory screen (I) and place the wood on the crafting grid like this:
    Wood = x
    [ ][ ]
    [ ][x] = [y]

    This should give you wooden planks (y) you can convert all of your wood into planks.

    next you need a crafting table, back on the inventory screen place wooden planks in the craft box like so:

    To pick up half a stack, right click it. once a stack is picked up you can place 1 unit by right clicking, or the whole stack with a left click.

    [x][x]
    [x][x] = [y]

    This will give you a craft table, place this in your quickbar (the bottom slots in the inventory screen) and exit the inventory. You can now place the crafting table on the ground by selecting it and right clicking where you want to place it. Once you do that you can right click on the craft table to bring up a bigger crafting grid.

    So lets make some sticks. This can be done on the craft table or in your inventory and looks like this:
    x= Wooden planks
    [ ] [x]
    [ ] [x] = [y]

    you will want to convert roughly half of your planks into sticks.

    Now to make a wooden pickaxe, use the craft table and make this:
    x=Wooden planks
    z= Sticks

    [x][x][x]
    [ ][z][ ]
    [ ][z][ ] = [y]

    This will give you a wooden pickaxe that you can use to mine coal and stone.

    Now you need to go hunting for coal, coal looks like this:

    It is quite easily spotted if you have enough light and if mined with a pick will drop lumps of coal, you can make torches to light your homes with coal + sticks like this:
    c=coal
    z=sticks
    [ ][c]
    [ ][z]

    Now you can dig a shelter, light it, and do whatever you want to do

    So I spent ages last night digging a hole (seemingly just because I could) put a furnace in, made a door and some lights. I built a moat around it made it look nice, then died and now I cant find the bugger! D'oh!!

    I had this problem so I built a big tower with a torch on top. Can see it for miles now.

    As an added point you can also tell your direction from the position of the sun. I believe the dock is to the south, you can often get your bearings from there.

    I hopefully will get the map in a map editor tonight and see if I can get a top down pic.

    The pictures I provided of my server were done in cartograph, its a standalone app where you can just download the world folder from the server and output various pictures from it, might be easier then a screenshot from a map editor. Cartograph - map your Alpha - Minecraft Forums

    I am new to the multiplayer part of the game.

    Is it possible to change resurrection point to another place?

    I think spawn points are fixed? We need to work on protecting ours a bit more.
