    Ok so I finally installed and got a Bukkit server running..YAY....but, after giving other players my external IP for the server...they cannot connect with it. I am running on a 64-bit windows 7 computer with java 6, update 26. My server's port forwarding is done through my verizon modem where I have set these settings..

    Minecraft:
    TCP Any--> 25565
    UDP Any--> 25565

    My server IP address is 192.168.1.2:25565
    Then the external IP address is 173.74.166.180:25565

    I use the following Plug-Ins...

    World Edit
    World Guard
    GroupManager
    FakePermissions
    Anti-Grief

    If necessary to know...I check to see if my server is open using PFPortChecker.....at portchecker.com

    And my server properties...

    #Minecraft server properties
    #Wed Jul 06 18:47:51 CDT 2011
    level-name=RogsMultiplayer
    allow-nether=true
    view-distance=10
    spawn-monsters=false
    online-mode=true
    spawn-animals=false
    max-players=20
    server-ip=192.168.1.2
    pvp=false
    level-seed=
    server-port=25565
    allow-flight=true
    white-list=false

    Any more information that you might need to know PLEASE ask me...I would love to know the answer to this problem...THANKS!

    Do not write anything in the server-ip. Leave it blank.

    Ok, I erased my server IP in the server.properties and ran the server...now when trying to connect it just says "Connecting to Server" then says that the "Connection has Timed Out"

    Okay, It made some progress, I typed in localhost in the server IP=.......And when I went to check to see if my port was open, while running the server, it said that is was OPEN...but then I tried connecting using the external IP and I got the same error....would it be possible for me to connect using the external IP...because If not then you just helped me solve the problem XD...I know since I am the host, I can connect using the localhost. But can I connect using the external?

    Not too sure. But as long as you can connect using localhost and your players can connect using your external ip its all good right?

    well yes, I just dont have anyone online right now to ask to connect to my server to see if the external IP works...lol I will in about an hour though....so If they can connect I will be thanking you like CRAZY, but if it doesnt I will also be posting their error message...LOL hahaha..:)

    Ok, so the localhost thing worked...but other players cant connect to the server using the external IP. It does however say "Logging In" but it never does...then it just says "Failed to Connect" "Connection Refusal"

    Yea, it would be a public server, but I mean I went through a lot of hard work just to get the server installed with bukkit and using all the right plugins, etc...I really wish someone could be able to fix this ):

    mmm so you forwarded the ports to your local ip address
    is licalhost still in your server ip in your bukkit config, if so remove it nothing should be sfter the =

    after you do this restart your server and try connecting to your external ip addrerss from your client then to 127.0.0.1 let us know the results (himochi is bad, always bad, noone ever learned anything about networking from having the work done for them in such a way. its a bad solution)

    How do I receive my external IP, err I mean what is a different way? Because I use PFPortchecker to tell me if my server is online...meaning if it is available for others to connect to, and to check my external IP. While running the server, with the server IP= blank, I try to check the port, and the application says that some other application is blocking the port "25565", and then Im not sure what the external IP is...

    EDIT
    I also tried whatismyip.com
    and it gave me the same external IP

    I have the same problem but I think you cant check the port while the server is running because the program tries to use the port to check if it is opened so try it with the server off

    I wish i could use that program but I have 64bit

    It says that the port is OPEN with the server not running, and gives me the external IP....but whenver I launch my server, then others try to connect with that number, it doesnt connect it just says "connecting to server"

    EDIT
    Wait what do you mean you cant use the program? My computer is running 64-bit

    It just says "Connecting to server" then it times out and says "Could not connect" "Connection Timed out:Connect"

    Do your server use wireless or wire?
    does you have several router connected till it reaches the server?

    Try it without any plugins first. Back them up somewhere, then try again.
