I recently switched routers (linksys to belkin) and I have portforwarded my router to allow my server to run. However, I ran into the most annoying issues of all: getting it to connect. After an hour's worth of getting it to work I wanted to try out to see whether I succeeded or not. On the contrary, I received a "Connection: Refused" error. Now, the funny part is this: I can't go on my server, BUT my players can. I've gotten three people playing fine at the moment, yet I can't even enter my server. I've portforwarded before (owned a server for a year now) but this is the first time it's happened. It's very weird too. I tried this on a different computer in my house and I still get the same error! Does anyone know what the cause of this is? Thanks to anyone that can help. EDIT: Using my internal IP address made it work, but I still would like to know why I can't use my static IP.
