Yes I know Hamachi can cause problems with Bukkit... but it's the only way I can run my server. I do believe it is possible though isn't it? I just wanted to see if anyone on here might have a solution. Each time I try to join I get a "string length received is less than zero" error. Or "Bad packet id" but usually the first one. My system specs will follow. Thank you for your time. OS: Windows Vista SP1 64-bit (x86) RAM: 6GB 30-37% used by Vista on startup....
