I have installed the latest bukkit jar and start it with java.exe -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit-0.0.1-snapshot.jar Which gets me the following (which looks like a normal start): 2011-02-25 17:29:18 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version Beta 1.3 2011-02-25 17:29:18 [INFO] Loading properties 2011-02-25 17:29:18 [INFO] Starting Minecraft server on 127.0.0.1:25566 2011-02-25 17:29:19 [INFO] This server is running Craftbukkit version git-Bukkit -0.0.0-459-g33fb4d6-b443jnks (MC: 1.3) 2011-02-25 17:29:19 [INFO] Preparing level "world" 2011-02-25 17:29:19 [INFO] Preparing start region 2011-02-25 17:29:20 [INFO] Done (991190760ns)! For help, type "help" or "?" Unfortunately I cannot connect. It just times out. If I start mcadmin with a regular minecraft jar I can connect fine, which tells me it's not a firewall issue. At a loss here. Anyone? Thanks.
