Hum... Well, the only things I can think off would be that your friend doesn't have a premium account.
Either that or that you're running LAN mode... I don't know.

NOT using LAN mode, making sure that you're using the right IP address for portforwarding...

Possibly turning 'online_mode' off would help.

Also, make sure 'server_ip' is blank in 'server.properties'

well I did everything, my friend has premium, I'm not running on LAN mode and I re-portforwarded it. It was working before and I also checked that the IP hadn't changed. It just seems that the server is just being a scumbag

hey ok you are using you Lan ip(192.168.1.1 or something) you need to use your internet ip.Go to www.whatsmyip.org and use the ip.

My router is a Thomson TG782T but I think that that was because I tried putting in an IP in my server.properties file

Make sure the port that you are using is open by entering it in this site http://www.yougetsig...ols/open-ports/

Go to www.whatsmyip.org to find your external ip. This is the IP that people who are not on you LAN can use to connect to the server.

The format is (as you know) : IP:PORT
Leave the minecraft_server.exe application running, and people should be able to connect to the server.

I have just given you the obvious, just double check this, sorry if this is not helpful.

You're gonna have to tell me how to open my port because it's just not working right now. My router model is up on one of my posts. I hope you can help.
