So I'm doing some testing of MC servers in preparation for when I hope to host a little server for my friends and family. I've already posted a thread about this, but I'm making a new one for some new issues and I'll add any additional problems I encounter them.
Problem #1: My .bat file with minecraft.net's provided command doesn't seem to be giving the server any more RAM, it still says something like "204 mb (38% free)" implying I'm getting only ~500 mb for my server. In my .bat file I have the following command "java -Xmx1024M -Xms2048M -jar server.jar nogui". Task manager shows the sever as taking all 2048 MB, but the server's little graph in the top left, says otherwise.
Problem #2: I'm not sure how critical this is, but if I try to open the server via that same .bat file (which I'm told should work) it opens for a slit-second and then disappears...
Problem #3: I can't change my IP to be static without my internet access mysteriously disappearing.
