Mar 17, 2013funfunfunsleep posted a message on [Resolved] Cannot open port 25565 [MineCraft 1.4.7 - Bukkit]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 in: Server Support and Administration
Jun 21, 2012So 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.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
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.
Feb 14, 2012Ever said something when you were supposed to say something else. A common example is calling your partner by your ex's name.Posted in: General Off Topic
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.

The OP's first post happens to be the funniest (to me)
Feb 12, 2012OK cool.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
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.

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 192.168.0.12 and your port-forward is to the 192.168.0.4. That is your issue"
Going on a hunch, the OP configured port-forwarding previously to 192.168.0.4 and it worked. Now for some reason, their computer has the IP 192.168.0.12. 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 192.168.0.12
Now the quick fix, without adjusting the port-forwarding settings would be to make sure their computer hosting Minecraft, uses 192.168.0.4. 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 192.168.0.4 (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 192.168.0.4. 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 192.168.0.4 :laugh.gif:
They could obviously just change the port-forwarding settings to 192.168.0.12 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.

Oh do you know if mobs walk around over 24 blocks away from the player and if they do is that in height as well as long the X/Z axis?
PS Nice to meet you, next time you should introduce yourself like that straight off.
People figure it out, soon enough.

Yes it is great it allows you to meet arrogant SOBs that cannot see the person has read the info and would like clarification!
You said you think that the wiki says 64, which it does not say. Is that supposed to indicate to me that you have read it, or that you haven't? Thoroughly? Recently?
So thanks for the clarification you may go back to placing your head back where the sun does not shine until you come to talk down to someone else who is stuck and asks a question.
Hi, I don't think we've met. My name's IronMagus, and I'm kind of a jerk. I'm sure we'll get along just fine.

Noticed on one of your other posts that you were having a bit of trouble looking for a server, "A bunch of 13yo abusive tossers" if I read correctly.. lol
Hope you find a better home here with us mate, I'm a 31yo full-time worker so when you do see me ill be too busy having fun with what little time ill have to spend with you guys building / surviving and talking ****

Hmm, is 42, has kids, previously worked for Federal Government and the Wilderness Society, plays as many video games as she can find time for between taking care of family...
Do I qualify as having a life?
Brand Loyalty is a scary thing sometimes. I prefer to think of Minecraft as the leader of the exploring/crafting game pack.
Because they can, no better reason really. Age and maturity vary with the individual.
Feb 13, 2012This is a post that's all about how I perceive the fourth dimension, and our universe. I state things factually for the sake of fluidity, but I know there are different ways of seeing things.Posted in: General Off Topic
The skeleton of my theory
Think of a circle. A line that connects to itself. You live on the edge of that circle.
Now think of yourself as a one-dimensional being, who knows only two directions: forward and backward. You might not understand how one side of your world could connect to the other when they're going off in opposite directions; one is forward, one is backward. A two-dimensional being however, would be able to see how the lines connect. He can see the third direction in which the line is curved, making a circle.
The same can apply to a sphere. If I'm a two-dimensional being who lives on the surface of a sphere, I wouldn't understand how it could curve back around onto itself. I would assume that it went infinitely in the X and Y directions, or that it eventually came to an end. However, the real me, being a three-dimensional being, can see how it curves around because I am aware of the Z axis.
I apply the same logic to myself. I am a three-dimensional being living on the edge of a four-dimensional sphere. I think that if I kept traveling in one direction, I'd eventually come back to the same spot. I'd have no idea how, but I think it would happen. If I ever met a four-dimensional being, he'd probably know.
"The Big Bang"
The Big Bang (as it's commonly known as "the beginning of time") could be interpreted as the center of the four-dimensional sphere. It would occur at Time=0, and therefore, at 4D=0, since the fourth dimension is often called Time.
If we reduce the 4D value (and therefore reduce time), we exist on the surface of a smaller sphere, closer to when the Big Bang happened in the past. If we increase 4D (which is what we're always doing, since time seems to always move forward), just like how increasing the radius of a circle also increases the circumference, the sphere is larger, which stretches our 3D world.
So is the universe expanding infinitely, or does it connect back onto itself?
I say both. We can't travel fast enough to overcome the rate at which our world is expanding, so from our perspective, the world is infinitely expanding. However, if we could travel fast enough to exceed the rate at which 4D is increasing, we would eventually loop back to where we began.
When a worm eats a tunnel through the meat of an apple, he leaves two holes in the skin. As you already know, our perceivable world is that skin.
In the above diagram, if a person traveled through the wormhole from point A to point D, they will have teleported. If a person travels from point A to point B, they will have traveled "back in time". If a person travels from point C to D, they will have traveled "forward in time".
Regardless of the circumstance, all we see is something disappearing at one point and appearing somewhere else.
And that's about it. That's how I see things. I tried to explain it as best I could. I hope it makes sense (in terms of language, I mean) to everyone.
Anyone see it the same way? Different ways?
I posted this in Off-Topic rather than the Politics and Science section because I'm not basing it on anything scientific. This is just stuff I've come up with by thinking about it, and talking about it with others.
Feb 10, 2012Alright let me give a bit of a better definition.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Dedicated Server:It's a physical server with all of it's resources dedicated to you. It can be hosted anywhere, but they're normally hosted in datacenters if you're buying them from any reputable company
Virtual Dedicated Server/Virtual Private Server/VDS/VPS: I've seen a lot of hosts calling these dedicated servers. These are not dedicated servers. They are an virtualized isolated environment inside of a dedicated server. Depending on which host you go with there are other VPS' on the dedicated server and you only get access to the resources you pay for unless they're being oversold.
Shared Minecraft Hosting:I see this being called dedicated hosting a lot lately too when in fact this is nowhere near remotely true. This is when you're all thrown into one dedicated server with no isolation at all. Normally you get a user on the server and your server process runs as that user. Freedom is usually limited since you don't have superadmin/root access. This is like having a bunch of users on Windows and you're just one of those users.
To the point: What you're looking for is either a Minecraft VPS/VDS or Shared Minecraft Hosting. Both have their advantages and I believe the VPS/VDS route to be the best since you can run any mods/plugins/server software you want on it and normally you'll see much better performance as other users (If setup correctly) can't hog them.

used to be called 'ServerToServer'; is now called 'Transporter'Quote from beeprintsWould be great if this functionality ever eventuates as you could then link servers together.
