    Hello people,
    I have my own Minecraft Server but my friend can't join...
    My ports are open and we both have the legal version of Minecraft. If my friend tries to join, Minecraft give a error: You couldn't connect with the server.
    The server says that the connection is lost with my friend.
    I have online mode=true...
    Can someone help me :)

    Grtz,

    Your firewall is probably blocking java.exe.
    Is your friend connecting to the correct Ip?
    Did you port forward 25565 correctly?

    yes port 25565 is open, but is this the ip: 123.456.78:25565 or must he connect to 123.456.78?

    123.456.78 Is not an ip? Am I right?
    Go to htp://www.Whatsmyip.org/
    EDIT: Yes, I'm 100% positive that's not a correct IP.

    It was as example :) I try that site now

    I see my ip, and if I check port 25565, it says it is open, does he online need to put in my ip? or :25565 behind my ip?

    Grtz,

    25565 is the default port, meaning he just needs to enter the Ip, but it doesn't matter. Have you checked your firewall? This is most likely your problem.
