Okay Im running (or was running) a MineOS server using a FreeNAS server. It worked great locally but it would not let me port forward. I did the following:
Logged into my router and set up a static IP for my mineos (10.0.0.xx4)
Port forwarded TCP/UDP port 25565
Turned off the firewall (to troubleshoot)
I could not enter the server through a plethora of “check my server” sites. It would not work. I tried to check the firewall settings in the shell through Putty but every time I tried to connect I got a “remote side unexpectedly closed network connection”
Then I got desperate and deleted my working server because I thought that because the server was using the same IP as MineOS (mineos would be 10.0.0xx4:8xxx and the server was set to 10.0.0.xx4:25565) i thought that putty was having a difficult time connecting or that there was an issue with my router determining what was what… I dont know. But I started a new server and gave it a new IP (10.0.0.xx2) and I kept getting crashed with “FAILED TO BIND PORT!” UNLESS I changed the IP back to the old one (10.0.0.xx4) Then the server will start.
I’ve been googling this for literally 7 hours. I’m about to give up entirely. Please someone help.
