When I start my server and try to join, I get:( java.net.connectionexeption Connection timed out: no further information: ) I know this could mean a lot of things, but I cannot seem to pinpoint my problem.
I have tried disabling my firewalls, resetting my router, restarting my laptop several times and also restarting Minecraft and the server itself several times. All of the above at the same time if that makes a difference.
Sort of shooting in the dark since I am not a tech-ish sort of person (Setting up the server in the first place took me all of one day) and feeling a little hopeless.
Hope someone out there who speaks the computer-not-so-savvy lingo while also knowing what to do. If there is no easy-for-noob explanation I am ready to dive into the computer-tech world as long as I can come up for air sometimes.
I used to be able to play with him all of the time, I port-forwarded, set a static ip, and had everything working fine, but now it has stopped working. trying to find out what could have stopped it. I know the version of Minecraft server is right (1.7.4) because I can connect using localhost as the ip. I have got something wrong somewhere and I can't figure out what it is.
