  4. ...your server only works when people are around you? What?
     
  5. He's just trolling you.

    Make sure, the client and server versions are compatible.
    If other players are still unable to connect, you should check if your firewall accepts connections to the public IP and port of your server.

    Do you know how to allow a bukkit server through windows firewall? Please show me ]: I've tried port forwarding many times and it doesn't really help, but then I tried turning off my firewall and it worked. I think it's too risky turning off the firewall everytime though, so I'm trying to find a way to allow my bukkit server through firewall. Sadly luck lately for the pass 5 - 6 months.

    well, like the people at my house. Such as my brother. But it doesn't work anymore
     
  9. Simply turning off the firewall is indeed a stupid idea. Please read the help files of the firewall.

    Press the Start button and enter "WF.msc", press Enter.
    Press F1 and the help shows up.
