Connection refused: connect error?
Posted 27 March 2011 - 02:32 PM
I rechecked my IP, had the right one, I rechecked port forwarding, the port is open according the port forwarding check website, and I even see the website's IP on my server.log file, but I don't see myself or anyone else trying to connect.
Totally puzzled.... any suggestions?

What's changed in the 24 hours? Did you restart the computer?
Have you checked the firewalls on the router/tower?
Did the internal IP of the tower change?
Did you add anything to the server or is it vanilla?

Haven't changed anything in the last 24 hours.
I don't think the internal IP changed, as port forwarding still works correctly.
It's the vanilla MC server.

Try connecting with the local IP..
Again, have you checked that there aren't any firewalls or antivirus software running on the server computer?
If you aren't seeing any attempted connections from players in the server log then either port forwarding isn't properly working or something is blocking certain incoming connections, either on the server computer itself, the router or your modem.

I disabled the ubuntu firewall and had the same problem. I don't have any antivirus installed on the tower.
I still have no clue what's going on....

1. Restart the computer and router (it's a cheap, but often magical way of getting problems solved)
2. Check the internal IP, even if it shouldnt have changed, there's no guarantee it didnt anyway.
3. make sure that the IP field in server.properties is blank
4. The port forwarding, kinda goes hand in hand with the internal IP. make sure it's correct. or even redo it. Delete the old rule, and do it again. routers can bug too.
5. Security software. remember that if you're on windows, and shut down your firewall (unless you only have the windows firewall), the windows firewall tends to kick in. so you might need to shut that one down aswell after you deactivated the other firewall (if any) while testing.
Can't come up with much else to try right now.

So I guess the lesson here, is if your MC server doesn't work, wait for a thunderstorm to knock your power out and you'll be good.....
Thanks for all the advice!
