    posted a message on External IP not working for friends
    Quote from Tylerjd »
    Who is your service provider? Most residential providers have whats known as a dynamic IP, which means it changes from time to time. Google "External IP Address" and there are many websites that will tell you your IP. Also, make sure in your server.properties, that your IP address line doesn't have an IP configuration, or it could block people from accessing your server.

    Is your Minecraft Server behind a router? If so, make sure that A) the port is forwarded, and :cool.gif: that your computer didn't grab a new IP from the DHCP server on your router, if it did, I would suggest setting it to a static internal IP so it doesn't change.


    Yeah, I know the IP didn't change, that was the first thing i checked, but what do you mean my 'service provider''? do you mean wifi? Linksys or something... My IP address line doesn't have anything written, and its port-forwarded. I don't know how i would check if i had a new IP from the DHCP server...

    posted a message on External IP not working for friends
    I have recently had a lot of bugs where my server gets corrupted, but its usually the same one. I just recently fixed it, but now, my friends (who are far away) cannot connect using the external IP address. I can connect using the internal, but i don't know why they can't. They get "Connecting to server.." and they never make it. Just wondering if anyone knows whats happened. Thanks :biggrin.gif:

    posted a message on PLEASE HELP mod issues
    I am not sure if this is the right place to put a question about mods, but i couldn't find anywhere else, so I was wondering

    Is there any way to download Mods without winrar? Or any other application that is supposed to help? I have not found 1 tutorial without it or other applications, and I feel like i am just going to mess everything up if i try myself.

    If there is a way to download mods without winrar, could you give me a tutorial link?

    posted a message on How do I make a server public?
    I tried everything you said, and when i went to 'canyouseeme' it told me

    Error: I could not see your service on ------ on port (25565)
    Reason: Connection timed out

    I am not sure i did the portforwarding right, since mine is a little different

    It has 5 columns, one says 'External Port', 'Internal Port', Protocol, 'To IP address' and 'Enabled'

    Obviously i would check the 'enabled' part, but do i enter my IPv4 into 'To IP address' or to 'External Port'


    (((Also, it asks for application name, do i just write in Minecraft?)))

    posted a message on How do I make a server public?
    Well, when my friends try to log on, it says 'Connecting to server..' for a really long time until it says 'connection timed out' and I opened up certain IPs and they can log on now. (since they have Macs, its really hard and thats why im trying to make this server public) I don't think I port forwarded Minecraft right.

    in: 'Applications and Gaming' do you enter the minecraft application to 'single port forwarding' or 'port range forwarding' and do you enter 25565 into the 'internal port' or the 'external port'? Sorry..

    posted a message on How do I make a server public?
    So i have a server that i made on my PC, and my friends have macs and since mine is private i have to enter their IPs into that port forward thingy (I am not very good with words today), and the mac version is really hard. i am wondering how i can make it public. How can my friends on macs get to my server? Also, if it is public, what IP do i give them?

    Sorry to double post but..

    I have given my friends the right IP and it still won't work. So do they have to port forward? or is it something else?

    If you and your friend are on the same network (connected to the same router) he'd use your local (IPv4) address.. if he's on another network he'll use your external IP: http://www.whatismyip.com

    You'll also have to set up port forwarding on your router.. go to portforward.com and find your router model # under the "Router List" to get instructions on how to do that.

    Will my friend have to port forward too?

    In a private LAN "localhost" only works for you on your PC. You need to get your IP address and give that to the players to connect to your server on your local area network.
    On Windows hosted server Click Start button then "RUN" and type "CMD" . In box that opens type ipconfig to get your IP.
    If you are running server in VirtualBox etc. You will have to use the CMD prompt from the game server to get it. Don't use a bridged connection as it makes it more complicated when using a virtual server. The server IP should be withn a few numbers of your IP address. EX. 192.168.1.199 (you) 192.168.1.195(server) Numbers are just examples.


    I tried to give my friend the IPv4 adress but it didn't work. Do you need the IPv4 or the Default Gateway?

    Actually, the IPv4 worked for me, but now it takes forever to connect

    Surprisingly, you have to update your server. Redownload the .exe / .jar from minecraft.net and overwrite the old one with it.

    Can i keep my world though?

    My server used to work fine on my computer, i could type in 'localhost' and get in. But i could only get in on my computer. All other computers it said:

    Cannot connect to server

    connection refused: connect


    I want to know how to fix ^ that and also how to update my server. It says

    Disconnected from Server

    Outdated Server!

    How do i fix ^ that?
