Hi guys

im trying to make a Minecraft server but when i try to connect to it by the external ip im getting " unknown host " ip " "

ive got 2 routers.. a zyxel router connectet to a WRT302n, wich is connected to my computer..

and ive got a port testing software and it seems like port 25565 is open.. but i cant connect to my server.. only if i connect by using my local IP - whats wrong?

Ok this will sound crazy, but type the IP into the box. Don't copy and paste it.
