Hi guys,

so i set up a simple server using minecraft server.exe. I connect myself to my server by typing "localhost" into the IP field. But what´s the ip adress the other player has to enter in order to join my server. It doesn´t work with my IP.

When looking into the server.properties, the field behind "server-ip=" is blank.

What is the ip adress to my server?

Register or log in to remove.

I'm doing the same thing you are. tbh I have no idea. I'm just learning this stuff too.

Oh hey, did you read the first topic up on the board? I think that may be the right way to do it.
Plus, make sure you edit your server.properties file so you can customize your stuff.

I have the same problem, I don't seem to find the "external url" so others can join. The stickied post about this says that you should look for a text file named Externalur to get it but I can't find none like it.

My server ip was also was blank in the server properties txt, is this the problem or is it normal?

I have the newest server software by the way, so it should not be out-dated.

It most likely doesn't work with your IP because you have not port forwarded correctly.

first off have you port forwarded? if you have, enter your local computer ip for the server ip in the server.properties file for instance mine is 192.168.0.111 to find out yours open cmd and type in ipconfig it should show your local ip for your computer (the ip you'll put in the server properties file).  then while your still in cmd look for your external ip (the ip other people outside your house will type in)

The server ip is the host´s external ip, that´s what i could find out. The externalurl file contains the server url for the browser based MC, it´s not an actual server address.

i´ve forwarded port 25565 correctly. We are 2 guys playing MC here, when my buddy opens up a server, i can join his server, but he gets timeout when tying to join my server, the router forward rules apply for both pc, so i can´t understand why it works only one way.

Look for your router model on http://portforward.com/ and follow the steps :)

Have a look at this forum: http://www.minecraft...-with-pictures/ Comes with pictures and all, if you wanted to save the hassel and rent one for $8 a month which is very cheap and works very well. You should check out NitroHost
That sure is a nice forum you have there. It would be a shame if anything happened to it.
