Some ISP's gives you a changing IP so check out http://www.dyndns.com/ - there are a lot of free webpage links to a changing ip there. Not 40.10.12.13 , 3 days later 40.15.12.16 but always myserver.kicks-ass.net.

Though, if the server is on the same network as your PC, you need to connect to it with the internal ip.

People who do not know how to get their own IP addresses should not be allowed to make servers, d'uh. Same for local vs outside IP. This is getting ridiculous.

I know how harsh that sounds, but reading over this forum makes me CRY.

I know what you mean, but we can't just say 'You're to dumb to manage a server, join an existing one please', now can we?

Err yes. I you dont have the resources (Decent machine, decent connection (more than DSL)) or the basic know how on managing the server (software, routers,  firewalls, preventing 'hackers'. Afterall you are giving out your IP address and known open ports. ( you would be surprised how many people simply DMZ and run an open VNC :))

I totally understand its 'unfair' but I'm sure players dont want laggy servers, and the hosts don't want to get hacked.

See, 90% of the servers created won't last long anyway (bad connection->people leave-> host is alone). But even if most of the servers whose hosts need help won't last long, they have the right to try to host a succesful server. And if they need help, then that's what forums are for.
As for the hacking: It may sound harsh, but it is not my job to teach them the basic rules of the internet. ;)

Edit: We're getting completely offtopic here.  :(

It's just a small server for me and my friends to play on...

no need to get rude (or something like that) here. I'm fully aware of that i can't run a big server.

Sorry, might have been a bit... arrogant, but seeing that there are so many threads with people having no idea on how to set up a server, even with a sticky which explains it can be very frustrating.
Anyway, hope you enjoy playing SMP with your friends. :P

Eh I look at it as helping to educate the next generation of potential IT folks.  Back in my day, it was kids setting up BBS' now it's minecraft servers.  ;)

Same goes for me, most of my posts looks pretty provocant and arrogant, pardon if it appeared that way, but it has all been written down, people just have to read for 5 minutes and have everything answered instead of the solution spread over different threads ("How do I set up a server?", "How do I find my IP?", "People can't connect", "How do I forward my ports?", ...).

Sure, but I take that these people were willing to read up on stuff unknown to them. We have all these informations, they are not hard to find and written in a way that everyone could understand. Yet every day we get the same posts.

You have a point.  
Methinks Notch needs to hire a tech writer to write up a manual for him so we can just say RTFM and be done with it.
>_>

(I say hire, because in my experience most developers/programmers tend to write for their own level which means the rest of the world is left scratching their heads.)

Or we can write a manual, sticky it, and say RTFS (R T F stickies).

Perhaps we should just start slapping people with that link but then we might loose our reputation of being all warm and cuddly.  Decisions decisions.

Same.
Also, the people who ask these questions most likely don't know how to open their port, then they make another thread saying "How do I open my port". Then they say "What do I with the thingy I downloaded".
They might as well join an existing one.
