Basically I got a new laptop today, and I want to run my server on it, but when I go to ipchicken, or whatsmyip, etc, etc; it will show something like 81.159.94.344 and I cannot connect to my homehub. I go to cmd ipconfig then I get something like 192.168.1.254 and that connects, but when I put it for my server ip it doesn't work (failed binding something like that), but 192.168.1.70 works I can connect but none of my friends can I'm really confused please help!


Thanks in advance.

okay so the 192 etc is your local network which you and other people in your house would use to connect. the 81 etc is your external network where other people connect to it. Also you need to port forward

192.168.1.70 won't work for your friends because its the internal ip of your laptop (on your local network)

Your server has to bind to 192.168.1.70  or whatever the address is locally.
You have to connect to that address as well.

Anyone not in your house has to use the address provided by ipchicken  AND your router / gateway has to port forward the MC port to your server IP.

Ok i have put
server-ip=192.168.1.70
On my homehub i have added Minecraft server to my pc with tcp 25565 an udp 25565 and then i give them the ip from ipshicken and it dont work

Can you connect to your server from a second PC in your house?
Does your server have a firewall on perhaps?
