So I made a server yesterday and It works perfectly fine except for the fact I HAVE to have my start.bat file open and running. How do I fix this so that any of my friends can join without me having to be online as well? When I don't have it open it's like the server doesn't exist and I don't think I have to have it open 24/7 seeing as other servers are open all day and night without having to do that. Suggestions?
The error message btw is
io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectionException: Connection timed out:no further information:
