No, you'll need to port forward if you are going to run a home server.  You can always rent a server though...

LAN server, but they'd need to be on the same network as you

No, it needs to go through your router.  There are other options, but they require software on both ends like Hamachi

Like Jefe said, that's unfortunately not possible.

Players need to first go through your router before they can go to your server, and without a port-forwarded server, that's not going to be possible. And also, to be able to post your server on minecraftservers.org, you're going to need a port-forwarded server.

If you're willing to spend a few bucks a month, there are a bunch of companies that offer server hosting. You can make a request in the Hosting Requests sub-sub-forum.

Best wishes,

11. download and run the client
12. login on the client
13. open the server map on your singleplayer and do open to lan

No guys, With any other tools. Even No-Ip. It actually still requires you to Portforward, VPS or even Rent a server.
There is no other way to make the Server Public without them.

What if you had multiple separate phone lines coming in to your location(each with a modem) and had people establish direct connections to the server over the telephone network.

Give out the phone numbers and enjoy non-portforwarded public minecraft in one of the most laggy environments conceivable to human kind!

While its not practical or desirable, its theoretically possible and does fit the bill.

* EDIT*lol i just realized, could do this with just a USB type DSL modem( no router) connected directly to the server machine- it might even be playable! (what is USB1.0 bandwidth anyway? 1.5mbps?)

This is pointless, you need to port-forward in order to make a public server and there is no way around it.

Couldn't you just unplug the router and plug your computer directly into the modem and then just have them connect to your ip?

No router = no ports to forward right?

Probably not the safest thing if you want it to be public though, if it could even work.

If you unplug the entire router, you'd have no Internet access.
Not sure if trolling, though.

a router is like a traffic officer, it just directs traffic. the MODEM is what gives internet access, the hint is in the name. Modulator/Demodulator.

Granted, you've likely grown up in an era where these two network components are most often combined into one single unit i.e. the modem router, but i can assure you that that is not true in all or even likely most cases.

On a straight road, there is no need to direct traffic. with a modem connected (through a non-network interface) directly to just one pc, there is also no need to direct traffic.

not sure if ignorant or just trolling Posted Image oh and BTW, i made the very same point that Rev did just 4 posts ago.

Dude, you need to cope with the fact that there is no way around it. Port-forward or rent. That is it.
