I cannot connect to my own server, even by setting my IP to localhost.
I have no error reports.
My server starts up nice, and fast.
I am not using any Mods, but since the forum rules stated I could not post Bukkit Server issues in the standard Server Support forums, I will post here.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit.
I have a Dell Dimension E510 Desktop Computer with a Pentium 4 Procressor @3.6GHz.
My graphics card is an OverClocked NvidiaGeforce 9600GT.
I have 4GB of RAM.
My Minecraft is version 1.4.7
My Java is Version 7 Update 17.
When I open up MineCraft, I see this:
I have Port Forwarded my router with port 25565 on both UDP, and TCP.
I have also restarted my router, and my computer after I added these settings to my router.
My server boots up just fine, and I have no error messages:
I have tried both the Bukkit Server, and the Minecraft.net Server files. Both give me the same issue.
I have looked up many different tutorials on Youtube about this, and none of them have solved my problem. I have requested help from a few of these people who created the tutorials as well. I still have no solution.
I have opened up my server.properties file, and set my servers IP to "localhost" and this did not work. I have left this field blank as well. This did not change anything either. As you can see above, I have also set it to my IPv4 address. This does not seem to produce any positive results either.
I have added both UDP, and TCP port 25565 exceptions for Outgoing, and Incoming in my firewall.
I have added programme exceptions in my firewall for every Java file in my computers database, such as: Java.exe; Javaw.exe; Javacpl.exe; Javaws.exe; and every other Java related file.
I have searched on Google many variations of: Cannot connect to bukkit server; Cant connect to my own minecraft server; bukkit server not connecting.
I have used the canyouseeme.org tool to check if the 25565 port is open, and it gives me this error:
So somehow, even though I have taken all of these steps, the port is still not open.
I have tried asking two of my friends who own their own Minecraft servers.
Neither of them were able to help me with this.
My server.properties file is set to all the standard defaults, exept for the view distance. I set this to 6, because it would help improve the performance.
Here are the server.properties:
Basically, what my question is:
How can I open the port 25565?
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me something that I missed that could rectify this issue.
If no one does know a solution to this, then does anyone possibly have an idea that might lead to a solution? Or were/who might I ask to get this problem solved?
Again, I have added exceptions to my firewall. I have Port Forwarded. I have a Static IP address set at 126.96.36.199
I have been told once that I need to have a number 1, where the number 0 is in my static IP. Such as: 188.8.131.52
I tried that, and my internet stopped working. I had to revert back to 184.108.40.206
If anyone could please tell me what to do, I would be very happy. I have spent near 3 days looking for an answer to this. =(
