I’ve been setting up an FTB Infinity server with MineOS.
I’ve installed MineOS on an older laptop that’s connected to my LAN.
Last night my problem was that others could not connect to my server, but I could connect using the internal network IP. I know it worked because I played for a couple hours. Now this morning the server wouldn’t even stay up. It would go down after about 5 seconds. I followed this: Install FTB Infinity 1.7 server for noobs and got it “working” again. Working as in the server does not go down right away. INSTEAD, what it does is give me this error: “java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: no further information:” and does not allow me to connect, even from within the LAN.
EDIT: And sometimes it says “Server still starting”
One point that might be relevant, I have it set to broadcast on LAN and I’ve also got a server entry in the minecraft client. Last night I could see the server pop up on both. It would get broadcast to me and it would be listed in the server browser where I added it. Now it only shows up in the lan broadcast section and where I’ve added it specifically it says “Can’t connect to server”.
So it’s a problem in two parts. First, is figure out how to get LAN clients back on the server. Second, fix the original problem which was allowing outside connections.
As for the outside connections, I have port forwarded port 25565 to the internal IP of the server. Didn’t work last night, doesn’t work now.
