    Hi, i have been trying to make a minecraft server all day but every time i try to connect to my server it says "Failed to connect to the server, Connection Refused: connect.

    Ive had a look on the forums but can't see a solution (sorry if i missed it)
    i bought my friend a copy so we could play together but can't make a server.

    i have already forwarded the ports needed 25565 TCP/UDP

    Ive tried to connect using my Ipv4 address with and without the port on the end and also localhost with/without. Ive also tried Hamachi and the normal minecraft server way. Ive tried turning off my Anti-virus software and the firewall off but still no change once in a blue moon it hangs then goes to a black screen and crashes. Ive tried on a fresh install of minecraft a few times.

    here's my

    #Minecraft server properties
    #Thu Jul 28 21:33:01 BST 2011

    and my .bat:

    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar

    and also my Bukkit Directory


    i really hope someone can help me to get this too work i'm going insane lol

    If your connecting from the same computer that your hosting it on don't connect through your IP instead connect via "localhost".

    You also may not have the correct IP. I suggest WhatIsMyIP.

    Does your server window list: "Done! (0.085s)" or something of the like, or throw any errors?

    Expand the cmd window and take a screenshot if you can.

    i have tried localhost and it says the same thing. i thought the person that is hosting it has to use the IPv4/Internal IP? Anyways Ive tried my Internal and external IP but when i try my external i get "Failed to connect to the server, connection timed out: connect"
    ive also tried to use the one the website recommended for new users "ImminentFate's CraftBukkit Installer" but still get the same connection refused craft lol. the log is a bit different though:

    The servers are running, you should absolutely be able to connect to the server running on your machine with localhost or
    The external IP for your router should never work.

    The only possible thing would be windows firewall. Check that, this is really odd.

    Hi again i have fixed the problem it was definitely something on my computer that was stopping it not my connection. i tried to login to other games and it would just kick me off saying error this error that so i did a fresh install of windows 7 Ultimate and now it works without any problems. thank you guys for posting replies to this thread =D

    OK, Off the topic of helping him, How is "The external IP for your router should never work." true in ANY way?
    Thats how I've hosted my server for months, you don't know what your talking about.
    I think you just don't know how to port forward.

    Knowlege pwns noobs.

    ISP's deciding what traffic is normal for you, that's when.
    Some router/firewalls block attempts from the internal to the external.

    You're right, it should have been "don't do that unless you're testing". Read more help forum there are people who have others connecting, but they themselves cannot connect to their own external IP.

    You don't have all the knowledge, clearly. Otherwise you wouldn't be playing on your internal network by going out to the internet.

    The ISP doesn't control traffic from inside to your own outside interface. Only after it goes from your outside interface to their gateway do they get any control.
    Generally cheaper "home" routers don't apply the NAT/port forward rules on the inside interface, only on the outside interface. Routers with better firmware and real router/firewall can apply the rule to both inside and outside interface allowing you to use your external IP address internally and access the same services on the same ports just as an external client would.

    Well, all 3 of the ISPs in my area have a huge traffic decision about our community, so I guess we're just lucky.
