    Using windows 7
    Java 7
    Using recommended bukkit server, 1.1-R3.

    Tried changing the port from 25565 to 25564 didn't work.
    Did netstat in cmd to check if any programs were using the port. no programs were using those ports
    No old instances of the server is running, restarted the computer twice.
    Both 25565 and 25564 are open ports.
    No firewall or antivirus running.

    should note
    I did edited the server ip in server.prop so friends can join my dedicated server. I don't get the error if i leave the "server ip" blank but then neither my friends or i can join the server

    The ip i'm using is public not the 192.168 one

    No. When this happens, you need to go to your Task Manager (or equivalent) and kill java.exe. Also, make sure that you don't have your IP address inside the file. That needs to be left blank.
