    What error do you get exactly?

    you only need to join with localhost or your internal ip

    Refering to what aa1202 said, just type "localhost" in the direct connect.
    If that doesn't work, please send your server log on startup.

    Get rid of local host in your server-ip= in your server.properties file

    i've already tried:
    server-ip= (real LAN IP)

    Nothing worked. Always same in Serverlog:

    13:45:59 [INFO] / lost connection
    13:46:22 [INFO] mwarlich [/] lost connection

    The local host IP can ONLY be used if you are connecting on the same machine the server is running. If you are connecting from a friend's computer located on a different network than your own (aka their house not yours). You will need to setup the appropriate firewall port forwarding rules on your router and your firewall rules on the machine you are using for the server. Only then will you be able to connect remotely.

    Thanks for you answer, but the Server i've tried to launch is on my own PC. I only made this:
    Perhaps i have to do more than this?
    I already have another server but i don't know which one because a friend gave it to me. Now I wanted to try something different.
    Would be nice if anyone could find the problem.

    Thanks :)

    to some people this is probably a stupid question, but do you have online-mode set to true, and trying to get in using a FREE hacked client

    delete it and make a new free account

    jacklin213 sry ima noob at this whats internal and extrenal. I have a duel band router so it sends out two "internetts" at once

    open cmd and type in "ipconfig" look for the LocalAreaNetwork adapter (LAN) and look at the IPv4 address there (Thats the Internal) Also look at the default gateway (How you log onto your modem). You portforward with internal and you your self log on with internal
    External is the ip you get off http://whatsmyip.org. Give others this ip
