Hey, I've got my own private server, which I'm currently hosting on my own pc. This server, only used by my friends, has never caused any problems, until today. I always use "localhost" to connect to my server, so I didn't notice there was a problem at first, until my friend told me he couldn't enter my server anymore. The minecraft launcher told him te folowing: "Failed to connect to the server. Connection refused: Connect" While this happens often, I checked if everything was running properly, if the ports were still forwarded as they should be, and if I maybe deleted something important from the craftbukkit folder. Nothing helped. After searching the internet for a solution, I tried to reboot my router, Re-instal the whole server, change the maps, change the settings, but nothing worked. I am too not able to connect to the server using my IP, I can only connect using "localhost". Please help me out here! Ruben Pc info: Running windows 7, 32 bit system. Java: Build 1.6.0_26-B03 No wrappers Craftbukkit version: "Implementation-Version: git-Bukkit-0.0.0-966-g158a1e4-b1043jnks" Minecraft version 1.7.3 Still need help ^^ EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
