Hello everyone. The name is Cory. I am trying to make a minecraft server. I have made them in the past, except the last time I did was during beta, so a long time ago.
I have downloaded the server, port forwarded, turned off my firewall, both windows and router. I set my computer to DMZ, which makes the router think my pc is another router, so it unrestricts everything.
I have checked my port forwarding with multiple online websites and all say my port is open. I have started the server, the world loads perfectly fine.
I can connect using local host, but when I put my public IP into the address, I cannot join, both on the computer running the server and also on my laptop connected to my phone hotspot (completely separate LAN).
I am at a loss to what I can try. I have redownloaded the server twice.
The only errors I get are "Exception handling console input", which goes away when I make a batch file and allocate more ram.
The ONLY thing I can possibly think of that points at the problem is that ONE of the 2 "check if my server is up" websites can't find it. The other does and detects if I change the motd to other things.
The minecraft client only says "cant connect to server"
Here is the log without allocating ram
