I run a server for me and a few friends, and we've had it for about a week now. When I went to connect to it today, Minecraft gave me the "Can't Reach Server" error. Not only is it not working for me, but it's not working for my friend's either. I've double checked the port-forwarding, and the ip address, but I just can't figure out what's wrong with it. Please help!
I'm having the same problem. I've given my friend my external IP address, checked the port forwarding, I use my IPv4 that I found in ipconfig. My friend is not able to connect to my server at all. I moved to another location using a different internet connection and can't connect myself. Please help someone.
I am having a similar issue. I am able to connect to a friend's server, but another friend is getting the "can't reach server" message. He has entered exactly what I enter and still gets the same message.
