    posted a message on The port 25565 for some reason remains closed no matter what i do...

    Btw, the “-d64” flag is only to be used on the Solaris operating system.


    I updated the Minecraft Gamepedia site to specify the d64 flag is used only for Solaris. I wasn't exactly sure how to reference you and this thread so I just linked it (instead of doing some sort of superscript thing lol). Nice to know some people still read it before coming here.

    You have an interesting use case for DNS resolution. Most people care about getting traffic to their server, rather than where they came from. It's a bit difficult to do this though, imo.

    The only way I can think of is having your own DNS server log queries to your domain and check it every so often.


    In nerd speak, you'll have to set up an authoritative DNS server for your domain and change your DNS registrar to point to that IP. That way during DNS resolution, your registrar will return the IP of the authoritative server i.e. 1.1.1.1. Then, whatever DNS server is configured for the system the Minecraft client is running on will ask 1.1.1.1 what's the IP of say, pmc.myserver.com. The authoritative server will finally respond with the IP address that's running Minecraft.

    Then, you log that request query and then figure out the best way to pull and view the data.


    Hopefully that makes sense.

    posted a message on [ERROR]: java.io.IOException: The handle is invalid
    It's not surprising that no one has answered this question. It sort of pertains to the system's API and I'm going to guess many people don't use this particular part of it (and of course not everyone is a programmer as well - and in this case, a Windows programmer). I'm also guessing that this question isn't properly answered on the Bukkit or Spiggot forums?

    Anyway, I was able to reproduce the problem on this thread, as well as offer a fix for it:

    If it works for you too, I might consider adding it to the FAQ on the Minecraft wiki.

    I think I'm misunderstanding something. You're suggesting to buy a host, but then not use them?

    You'd think a setting would survive a few hours. Perhaps a faulty router?

    posted a message on 1.7.10 server .jar file downloads as a .ZIP. Am I missing something?
    Wow, I can't believe IE doesn't recognize it's a jar file.......But you're totally right, I was able to reproduce the problem on my computer as well. I'm going to guess that the reason IE thinks it's a zip file is because a jar file and a zip file have the same magic numbers.

    Anyway, there are a couple easy fixes after that.

    One way is you can just rename the file. Be careful that you don't end up calling it minecraftserver.jar.zip (another user on the forum had this problem a few days ago because they didn't have file extensions on by default).

    The safest way is to open up a command prompt, change directory to the folder that's holding the Minecraft server file and doing a
    rename minecraft_server.1.7.10.zip minecraft_server.1.7.10.jar
    However, that's using the command prompt.

    In my opinion, I think the easiest way to fix this is to enable file extensions and then rename the zip file. You can't just right click and select rename/properties to rename it, it'll just be renamed to minecraft_server.1.7.10.jar.zip.

    Also, make sure your firewall is configured to allow TCP traffic through port 25565.

    posted a message on Help me please, I am desperate.
    Could be a firewall problem. Check your firewall settings. There's a chance that your ISP is also blocking the port (I've read a view threads about people complaining about it).

    First things first though, firewall settings.

    posted a message on EULA Revisited: an Updated Q&A From Mojang
    Quote from Durphead

    The problems with the new enforcement is very simple. Mojang is taking a more lenient EULA and enforcing it in a way that is deleterious to all servers, and everybody loses. Server owners will be directly affected by a loss of money caused by the inability to open up shop. They will be forced to attempt to make enough money with aesthetic items alone (a tricky endeavor,) take donations out of the kindness of our hearts, (also not likely,) or to make the players pay just to join the servers. Now we, the players, are the ones who are going to have to pay this fee for playing on our favorite servers, so we'll lose there. And not everybody wants to pay to play Minecraft multiplayer, so the community will likely shrink. Minecraft will lose a lot of popularity, and thus Mojang loses as well.

    In short, Mojang does have the right to do this, in the same way that you have the right to walk around with a large metallic pole during a thunderstorm in a crowded area: you can, but you'll hurt yourself and others. It's not that Mojang is doing something morally wrong; it's just not a good decision.

    I agree with you. That note that was written to Notch from Sterling outline for me that it'll be much harder for software devs to ... do anything, really. My opinion on selling items though, hasn't changed. Everyone loosing is a bit much, but I get what you mean.
    I do agree though, that it'll be that much harder to keep a server(s) from being shutdown. That's why I think they should have nipped this in the bud before it spun out of control. Of course, since it happened it's easy to judge this situation, particularly when I've never stepped foot into their office, much less attend a staff meeting. Yeah, it's a huge mess.
