I am not very computer savvy but i really enjoy minecraft. I have a Mac so i need some help from some1 who knows how to work one and pretty much help me step by step because i am just really bad at this stuff haha. I currently have a server i think but my frnds cant login unless they are right next to me on my routers internet. im assuming that it has to do with my ip address thing but hey i have no idea. IF some1 could help me hook this up to online play i would really really appreciate it.
Yep I've got the same issue. I forwarded the port, but it is only a local server. I think it may have something to do with my IP. It was just a default IP.
Go to a website that tells you your IP and tell your friends to connect to that IP. Also if you have a dynamic subnet IP then you would have to portforward when ever you restart your computer so google how to make a static local IP if you have a dynamic subnet IP
