Okay. I am having an issue with connecting to my own server. I have no error reports. My server starts up nice, and fast. I am not using any Mods, or plugins of any kind. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit. I have a Dell Dimension E510 Desktop Computer with a Pentium 4 Procressor @3.6GHz. My graphics card is an OverClocked NvidiaGeforce 9600GT. I have 4GB of RAM. My Minecraft is version 1.4.7 My Java is Version 7 Update 17. Every time I start it up, and open my Minecraft Client, I see this: I have Port Forwarded my router with port 25565 on both UDP, and TCP. I have also restarted my router, and my computer after I added these settings to my router. --- --- My server boots up just fine, and I have no error messages: Code: 210 recipes 27 achievements 13:49:00 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.4.7 13:49:00 [INFO] Loading properties 13:49:00 [INFO] Default game type: SURVIVAL 13:49:00 [INFO] Generating keypair 13:49:01 [INFO] Starting Minecraft server on 192.168.0.44:25565 13:49:01 [INFO] This server is running CraftBukkit version git-Bukkit-1.4.7-R1.0 -b2624jnks (MC: 1.4.7) (Implementing API version 1.4.7-R1.0) 13:49:02 [INFO] Preparing level "world" 13:49:02 [INFO] Preparing start region for level 0 (Seed: -6847349592826619902) 13:49:03 [INFO] Preparing spawn area: 24% 13:49:04 [INFO] Preparing start region for level 1 (Seed: -6847349592826619902) 13:49:04 [INFO] Preparing spawn area: 0% 13:49:05 [INFO] Preparing spawn area: 93% 13:49:05 [INFO] Preparing start region for level 2 (Seed: -6847349592826619902) 13:49:06 [INFO] Server permissions file permissions.yml is empty, ignoring it 13:49:06 [INFO] Done (4.686s)! For help, type "help" or "?" > I have tried both the Bukkit Server, and the Minecraft.net Server files. Both give me the same issue. I have looked up many different tutorials on Youtube about this, and none of them have solved my problem. I have requested help from a few of these people who created the tutorials as well. I still have no solution. I have opened up my server.properties file, and set my servers IP to "localhost" and this did not work. I have left this field blank as well. This did not change anything either. As you can see above, I have also set it to my IPv4 address. This does not seem to produce any positive results either. I have added both UDP, and TCP port exceptions for Outgoing, and Incoming in my firewall. I have added programme exceptions in my firewall for every Java file in my computers database, such as: Java.exe; Javaw.exe; Javacpl.exe; Javaws.exe; and every other Java related file. I have searched on Google many variations of: Cannot connect to bukkit server; Cant connect to my own minecraft server; bukkit server not connecting. I have used the canyouseeme.org tool to check if the 25565 port is open, and it gives me this error: So somehow, even though I have taken all of these steps, the port is still not open. I have tried asking two of my friends who own their own Minecraft servers. Neither of them were able to help me with this. Basically, what my question is: How can I open the port 25565? I would greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me something that I missed that could rectify this issue. If no one does know a solution to this, then does anyone possibly have an idea that might lead to a solution? Or were/who might I ask to get this problem solved?
