My server's hard drive crashed and I replaced it, so I have a fresh install and since 1.0 is coming up at 'some point' I tried to setup the unrecommended build (keep reading!), however when my friend tries to connect now, they get stuck at "downloading terrain" and then eventually "connection Lost, timed out". Figuring it was bukkit not being a RB, I swapped out the .jar to vanilla minecraft server for 1.0. My friend is still having the same exact issue as well. I'm able to connect over LAN but not over the internet either. I checked the port with (canyouseeme) as well as disabling the firewall completely temporarily. In both cases nothing changed from the player or server log perspective. I've tried re-generating the world with the vanilla install, as well as deleting the player files, but nothing has seemed to work so far. This is a fresh map (twice now) so it shouldn't be any kind of protection issue etc. I've also tried using Java 7 x64 and Java 6 x86 (I used direct path to Java to make sure I launched the different flavors) Bat command: Code: "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui Server Log: Code: 2011-11-22 10:38:37 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.0.0 2011-11-22 10:38:37 [INFO] Loading properties 2011-11-22 10:38:37 [INFO] Starting Minecraft server on *:25565 2011-11-22 10:38:37 [WARNING] **** SERVER IS RUNNING IN OFFLINE/INSECURE MODE! 2011-11-22 10:38:37 [WARNING] The server will make no attempt to authenticate usernames.
