[WARNING] **** FAILED TO BIND TO PORT!
[WARNING] The exception was: java.net.BindException: Address already in use: JVM_Bind
[WARNING] Perhaps a server is already running on that port?
Any idea what could be the problem? As far as I know I don't have anything running on that port.

not all routers allow you to use the external ip to route back, try getting a friend to connect with the external ip

What Router do you have
I would not prefer ADSL Routers

Is the port TCP/UDP and 25565 in starting port and ending port?
Are you sure you did EVERYTHING right?
I'm sorry for the bombardment of questions, but I'm just making sure. This seems like a portforwarding problem.

And yeah, thats fine. I just want to figure out what's wrong.

"verify-names=true" underneath motd in the server.properties and then attempt to connect. When I first set up my server that was my original problem. I think somethin' has happened recently with Minecraft servers though because I am havin' issues of my own settin' up my server again. I can get on no issues but my friends can't.
