I setup a minecraft server running under Ubuntu 10.10 this weekend. Grandson & I played together on LAN, him on server using 127.0.0.1, me on another Ubuntu client. Ran fine.

Opened port forwarding on router and had a friend try it out from his Ubuntu client. All good.

Today my grandson is trying from his home Windows 7 PC. Connection timed out.

From a Windows PC, I did a CrossLoop connection to his Windows 7 client. From the list of Best Minecraft Private servers, I was able to connect to some, but not all.

I don't know where to start. I don't see how client OS makes any difference. If one person can connect, shouldn't all?

Register or log in to remove.

Maybe that Crossloop  reference just confused things. Here's the jist of the problem.

Ubuntu 10.10 server
Local Ubuntu client connects fine
Remote Ubuntu client connects fine through forwarded port

Remote Windows 7 client cannot connect
Same Windows 7 client connects to some other private servers, but not all

Where do I start in troubleshooting a client that can't connect to SOME servers, including mine?

What IP are you using?
Does your server log show his login attempt?

Can you PM me your server IP so I can test it with my win7 box?

No, server log shows nothing. The log does show the one remote Ubuntu client connection.

Server IP:   71.225.120.218:25565

There's a whitelist, "westmn" added. Can anyone else with a Windows client even get to the whitelist error message? My grandson's client won't even connect, let alone get to the whitelist.

Ah yes, it always pays to validate the conditions that existed yesterday. Seems my router rebooted overnight and the port forward wasn't saved. Duh.

Thanks for the help.
