Wow the whole computer?! I sure hope its your router friend, hope its all worth it in the end.
If I may ask, is your server just for personal use to play with your friends or something else?

I never did find out what was preventing my friends from connecting to my 1.7.10 server but my 1.8 server works just fine after normal setup. Hope everyone else found the same luck. I come on here every once in a blue moon but if there are more people who need help should reply! ^^
Sep 6, 2014potatopuppy posted a message on java.net.connectexception connection timed out no further informationDid you try everything I listed above?Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Jul 18, 2014potatopuppy posted a message on Connection timed out - Port is open finally, but why is it still not working?Okay so i shut down the server and then both ports were open so thats fixed. But it still says I can't connect using my public IP.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
EDIT: I can't connect at all even after using localhost.
Jul 18, 2014potatopuppy posted a message on Connection timed out - Port is open finally, but why is it still not working?Changed the port to 2556 and it gave me something a little different... its not completely bad but its something different.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
When I changed the port to 25566 it gave me a port binding error so I just made it a smaller number. Also forgot to change my TCP and UDP rules in my firewall before testing my ports so maybe adding rules isn't the solution. Even when I did fix them to the right port it still gave me the same result. The server still doesn't work when trying to join with the public IP

Jul 17, 2014Even if I do revert back it wouldn't change the fact that the port is closed. I need solutions relating to ports.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Jul 17, 2014I set up a static IP a while ago (same time as TCP and UDP setup). It worked when I made a 1.7.9 server but it just doesn't seem to like 1.7.10.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Jul 17, 2014I'm getting really frustrated with my friends not being able to join my server even though I set it up correctly. I tried checking to see if the port was closed and surprisingly it is though I'm not sure why. I set up TCP and UDP rules in my firewall to port 25565 and allowed java through the firewall long before this issue started so I just don't get it.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
I really need some help on this. Anything will do.
Jul 17, 2014I havent replied here in a while lol. But I'm having the exact same problem AGAIN except for my 1.7.10 server.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
To all of you trying to run and play please make sure you've done everything on this list.
1. Port forwarding. Go to this website to get specific instructions on how to do that for your router.
2. Leave the "server-ip=" option in your server properties file blank, make sure the "server-port=25565" is the same unless you're using a different port.
3. Make sure your friends have your current IP address which you can find here
4. Check to see if port 25565 (or whatever port youre using) is open here
5. Make sure you allow app through the windows firewall (Java in this case) make sure it is checked and is marked both private and public.
6. Add TCP and UDP rules to your firewall (go back a page to see steps or look up a video)
I'm trying to figure out why my port isn't open at the moment but just take time to look at those things. Its good to know how to do some of this in case you ask for help elsewhere
Jun 7, 2014WhatPosted in: Server Support and AdministrationQuote from Seriak6
Fixed it! after 3 hours of work,
Step 1: Go to control panel (i use vista so try and follow along)
Step 2: Go to windows firewall
Step 3: Click allow programs through firewall
Step 4: Add port TCP 25565
Step 4: Add port UDP 25565 (Names don't matter)
i hope this helps for everyone, if not i also found this thread here that fixed alot of peoples errors:
More specifics on this. You need to go to advanced settings on your firewall to make TCP and UDP rules.
1. Open control panel
2. Windows firewall -> Advanced settings
3. Click inbound rules
4. In the left collumn should be the new rule option
5. Make a port rule and create both a TCP and UDP rule, both on local port 25565 (or whatever port you use)
6. In the action section, click "allow the connection"
7. Keep everything checked for where the rule applies
8. Name it something you will remember and specify which is the TCP and UDP rule.
Adding TCP and UDP rules like this just fixed my server for 1.7.9 which I was having issues with yesterday. Hope this helps.
Jun 7, 2014So I have been an avid troubleshooter for most minecraft server fixes and this one I just cannot figure out.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
I tried to set up a 1.8 server, files from direct sources and so on. I set it up like I always do but it pings for a while and says cannot connect. More specifically, gives the error java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information.
I know this was a common error when things changed for 1.7.2 servers but I have tried everything. Different ports, pinging directly to my IP, checking firewall app permissions, creating exceptions, turning off the firewall all together, restarting my laptop, update java, etc.
Does anyone have any new ideas how to fix? I know that 1.8 isn't supported yet but when I tried running a server on 1.7.9, it gave me the same error and I tried the same fixes.
