I’m new here and have a problem with connections from the web. The server is running on a second pc, I can join the server from my main system, no probs. But I don’t understand HOW my friend can join the server.
Do I have to find out my IP-adress and give it to him so he can log in or how do I do it?
I’m from Germany, the provider is unitymedia and I have a netgear wndrmacv2.
You have, as you yourself state, to find your own external IP-adress; https://www.whatismyip.com/
This however is not enough. You also have to tell your gateway (usually your [wirelsess[ router) to send external requests to the right computer on the internal network. It goes under a set of settings called “port forwarding”: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netgear/WNDRMACv2/Xbox_Live_360.htm.
The default minecraftport is 25565
thanks for your quick reply.
I’ve already done that, but without a Static IP. I’ll try this and come again.
I gave the server a static ip and wrote my IP in the server.properties in webUI. The server won’t even stay up for half a minute. Also the portforwarding doesn’t work either.
Don’t do this–this will make your server not work.
so back to 0.0.0.0, Server is stable now and I can connect via 192.168… and via external IP from my second Pc. Now I’ll test it friends and hope it works.
EDIT: Giving the server-pc a Stativ IP did the trick . Thank you very much!
