    Love the comprehensive OP. I'm a L3 technical engineer for kicks, and would absolutely love it if our first level guys would send us tickets with this much detail.

    posted a message on Remove creepers without bukkit.
    So you don't like bukkit because you feel pressured by your users to give into their demands. Going out on a limb here, but that doesn't sound like bukkit's fault.

    I use bukkit on my server. But I market it as vanilla, giving the users only one feature that is not vanilla, and that's nerfing creepers. Everything else is for protection, server management and logging. Users ask me to install this and that, but I repeatedly say, "this server is vanilla, if you don't like it, go elsewhere". I'd suggest installing bukkit and sticking to your word. You're the administrator and providing a server, as well as a service to the MC community, if users want more, they can go elsewhere.

    posted a message on Ever made a Freudian Slip?
    Ever said something when you were supposed to say something else. A common example is calling your partner by your ex's name.

    If you're wondering exactly what a Freudian Slip is, here's your answer:

    A Freudian slip is a verbal or memory mistake that is believed to be linked to the unconscious mind. Common examples include an individual calling his or her spouse by an ex's name, saying the wrong word or even misinterpreting a written or spoken word.

    Any how, I have two.

    First, happened today. I thought I did, but didn't actually happen thankfully. I was forwarding an email to my boss about a project update from our customer and Microsoft. But I seriously thought for a moment I'd typed Minecraft instead of Microsoft. It freaked me out. I actually feel like triple checking now.

    The other was when I asked my dad for a playstation. But instead I was thinking Gameboy so I mixed the two up. I'll let you guess what I asked my dad.

    Falling majorly off topic, I honestly tried taking this thread seriously but my brain just wanted to change every P to the letter S with the topic in hand :biggrin.gif:

    The OP's first post happens to be the funniest (to me)

    Try setting server-ip= to server-ip=. It should be left blank unless you're running multiple servers on one computer.

    Then restart the server and see how you go.

    posted a message on Letting minecraft server run with firewall on
    OK cool.

    So you go to Control Panel. In control panel, you'll see System and Security. Under that heading should be Check Firewall Status. Click that which will bring you to the Windows Firewall window.

    In here, click on Advanced Settings. Now in here right click on Inbound Rules on the left hand side, and select New Rule.

    For Rule Type, select Port and click next.
    Leave the selection as TCP and for Specific local ports, type in 25565, click Next.
    Leave the option as Allow the connection
    For profile, select all options and click Next.
    Call it something appropriate and click Finish.

    That should do it.

    Quote from Arck

    Again... I think too much is being read into what I'm saying. I never said it was complicated. Never said it was hard. Never said it wouldn't work.

    I'm 33 years old. I've had a computer since I was 11. I've worked in the computer industry since I was 17. I remember when static IPs were a part of every day life. This hasn't been the case in many, many years. I can't remember the last time I've seen a problem where the answer is setting a static IP on a home router and a Windows platform. Maybe on 95. Not likely on 98. Probably not on XP. Definitely need not Vista or 7.

    It's quite possible that a static IP is a possible fix here. My point was, and is, that this isn't the only possible solution and that this is likely to cause issues in the future. Router dead and can't figure out why you can't connect to it? Network issues and tech support has you mucking around in network settings unaware that you've disabled dynamic IP assignment? Things of that nature.

    So if you change it and it works, that's fantastic. But put a sticky notes on your router or something so you don't forget. That's all.

    Avoiding the d*** measuring contest :wink.gif: , let's take a look at the error again - "Your computer's internal IP is not the same as what you have port-forwarded. Your network gave your computer and your port-forward is to the That is your issue"

    Going on a hunch, the OP configured port-forwarding previously to and it worked. Now for some reason, their computer has the IP My gut would say that their previous DHCP lease has expired, and DHCP has issued them with a new lease, but this lease is for the IP

    Now the quick fix, without adjusting the port-forwarding settings would be to make sure their computer hosting Minecraft, uses They can do this by either one of three ways I can think of;

    1 - In Windows, and in the network properties for their wireless or wired NIC, set their IP to (I wouldn't recommend this personally if the computer is a laptop as mentioned earlier) which would disable the use of DHCP.

    2. - From the router, and using the computer's MAC address (IPCONFIG /ALL) set it so the computer uses the static IP Then the OP can continue to use DHCP, and a simple IPCONFIG /RENEW will apply the new IP.

    3. The OP can turn off all devices in their household, wait until all DHCP leases have expired, and then run IPCONFIG /release and then IPCONFIG /renew until their assigned IP is :laugh.gif:

    They could obviously just change the port-forwarding settings to but it's quite possible that without a static IP, that this problem could eventuate again. The exact same thing happens when people tell others their external IP, and then it changes with a new connection, ISP renewal etc.

    For regular home computing, DHCP is fine. But hosting any service be it Minecraft, a printer etc, it's in your best interest to set a static IP.
