    posted a message on Windows 10 server not showing up

    Maybe someday, but right now there are differences that would make it not feasible. How would it handle when a Java player has items the Win10 version doesn't know about? Issues like that.

    posted a message on i get this when i start my server any suggestions

    His server-ip is blank, as evidenced by the *:25565. It's something else using 25565. Kill whatever process is using it, or reboot.

    And final note ignore pretty much everyone who's posted so far, they don't know what they're talking about.

    lol that's a pretty arrogant statement. Considering I've been an IT professional (i.e. getting a paycheck for it from business) for nearly a decade longer than you've been alive, I feel pretty confident I know what I'm talking about.

    And why won't the hardware work? I don't know what you're talking about.


    Did you even look at what he picked? If you don't see the problem, you really shouldn't be trying to give IT advice.
    Quote from FL4W»

    Oh and I forgot to mention you will also want to host the server on linux for three reasons:


    1. Experience

    2. To maximize the power on your hardware (Keep in mind if you use Windows you need anywhere between 2GB-4GB just for windows itself. Linux only uses 200-500 MB)

    3. Saves electricity


    I won't argue #1, gaining experience in any platform is a good idea but the electricity difference is negligible and 2-4GB for Windows? lol only if you don't know what you are doing when you build the server. This is from the Server 2012 that runs the Minecraft server my kid uses (obviously not while MC is running; sitting idle in Windows):

    Why are you using VMware? You're just giving yourself more overhead to deal with.

    posted a message on Problems with port forwarding.

    You don't need UDP unless you are running query. You didn't answer my other question; are there any devices upstream of that tplink router?

    posted a message on Problems with port forwarding.

    I doubt it's the issue, but is your local IP static? If not, perhaps it changed. You also said you tried both wifi and wired. Did you update your server.properties when you changed devices? They would have different IPs after all. Best to just leave server-ip blank in server.properties anyway, it's not necessary unless you are having binding problems.


    PS - are there any network devices upstream from the tplink router you shown in the screenshot?

    Don't disable your firewall, just add a rule to allow 25565 through. Disabling the firewall doesn't have the effect you think it would.

    posted a message on Need Help With New Server

    Not getting a reply within five hours isn't that unusual, you need to be patient. It may help if you were more thorough in describing what you need help with. You didn't say what type of server software you were using, what plugins you have and which you need help with, etc.

    posted a message on My Minecraft is broken?

    Well, I'm not sure what is up with that but I'd just switch to MultiMC. It's a way better launcher anyway.

    posted a message on Play on LAN. No internet connection AT ALL. Offline from the world

    Well, you could try downloading and running the server dedicated (minecraft_server.jar or Spigot or the like) and set online mode to false. I know that works fine, I've had LAN sessions with friends when there was no internet doing it that way and we had no issues.

    You are better off just renting a server. The bandwidth will be superior, you could optionally get DDoS mitigation, a paid host would have power and network redundancy you do not have, and you don't have the hassle and expense of running a machine 24x7.

    posted a message on Problems to launch my server

    Incorrect. His port is not in use, he is using an invalid IP. OP, do not use your public IP in the server-ip field of server.properties unless it is bound to a local interface (it's not, hence the error). Leave server-ip blank. You only need to fill that in if you are having binding problems.

    posted a message on Why can't I connect to my server?

    You shouldn't have to run it in offline mode normally. Offline mode is not secure, you shouldn't leave it like that. It's not surprising you couldn't connect with your external IP; most home routers do not support NAT reflection (i.e. using external services from within the NAT'd network). You'd use the local IP on the computer with the server (the one likely starting with 192.168 or 10. etc)

    Quote from Carponius»


    ipv4 is not your external ip it’s just an ip that’s assigned to your computer I believe,


    IPv4 is just a format of IP. It has nothing to do with where it is assigned or whether it is internal or external.
