    Ah, good to know.

    server-ip is blank, like you show. I also tried putting my server-ip in there just to see if that had any effect, but nada.

    I have since discovered that turning off the public firewall on my server box makes the bukkit server visible. Which is odd, because my users are all connecting internally on my home network. I mean, these computers can all access each other's hard drives etc.

    At least I have a starting point now, though still unsure whether this odd behavior is specifically bukkit related. As mentioned, vanilla minecraft server worked without changing anything on the firewall.

    That is strange.

    I would suggest trying to port-forward your minecraft port and seeing if that accomplishes the same thing as turning off the entire firewall - making your server accessible to your LAN players.

    I can understand why you would not want to port forward, because it creates a potential exploit, but I would recommend you try it for the sake of testing.

    If you discover that port-forwarding doesn't solve the problem, then, by all means, re-block the port.

    But, if it does solve the problem, you'll have a more pin-pointed problem area. At this point, you could go ahead and re-block the port.

    I just think it would be conducive to locating the problem if you port-forwarded to see if your problem is directly related to blocked ports.

    i figured out what the firewall problem is. My vanilla minecraft is configured to use javaw.exe, but bukkit is configured to use java.exe. Not sure why I did that - I probably copied those directly from their respective instructions, and one says javaw and the other java.

    The javaw file was permissioned on my firewall, but java wasn't.

    That doesn't answer the question about why the public network is being used and not the private one, but at least it is now consistent.

    I appreciate your responses, they helped get my brain working.

    A logical explanation, I love those!
    Glad I could help, BossCraft , in whatever way I did :3

    What's the question you're still not sure about - could you clarify/specify it a bit more (getting late, so I'm a bit scatter-brained)? I'm not sure I'm more qualified to help you with it, but Im sure we could manage to come up with a solution as to why it's happening. It might not be crucial to your server, but understanding your network and how it fuctions is always a handy convenience.

    Would I be able to run a bukkit server on 6 GB of ram with a low download/upload speed?

    I originally posted this on the Something's not working post, but thought better of it:

    Hi, I'm using the file craftbukkit-1.2.5-R3.0 to set up a server.
    I have a Windows 7 64-bit system with a 32-bit version of Java 7 (Update 4) and JavaFX.
    I deleted JavaFX in case this was messing things up, but that doesn't seem to have helped.
    Java resides on my machine at C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe.

    I'm still having the "unable to access craftbukkit.jar" error. Here are my files.
    ( )

    I've tried renaming craftbukkit-1.2.5-R3.0.jar to Craftbukkit (as above) and craftbukkit, and leaving it as-is, and changing the name in the bat file to match the long, versiony name of the craftbukkit filename.

    For the bat file, I've had it titled Run.bat (not with the .bat visible, but as in the screenshot in the Something's not Working post.) I've included several versions of the Java path, and
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar Craftbukkit.jar
    Seems to work best--it gets me to the "unable to access craftbukkit.jar" error.
    If I use
    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="64" "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1024M -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit.jar"
    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="86" java -Xincgc -Xmx1024M -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit-0.0.1-snapshot.jar"
    It gives me a similar message (after I moved the BUKKIT folder to my desktop):
    "unable to access jarfile C:\Users\User\Desktop|?Minecraft Server -- BUKKIT\craftbukkit.jar"

    By contrast, using
    @Echo OFF
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
    @Echo OFF
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
    @Echo OFF
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
    the batch file seems to fail due to a path problem--they generate this error in the terminal window:
    The system cannot find the path specified.

    I looked for the GUI system mentioned in the Something's not working thread by ZeroZX4, and get a 404 error.
    His run2 j7 32b file gives me the same "cannot find the path specified" error.

    One thing occured to me as I edited the file over and over. I put my BUKKIT folder into my
    Program Files (x86) folder, so as I edited and reedited the bat file, I needed to run notepad as admin,
    and click through lots of user access dialogs. So I tried moving the whole BUKKIT folder to the desktop,
    in case some access/permission problem was at the root of things, but no joy.

    Any help is much appreciated, thanks! I'm sure I'm missing something silly, but can't seem to find it.

    Low download/upload speed is not enough info.

    What's your CPU(Almost certainly good enough if you have 6gb ram) And what exactly is your d/u speed?
  11. Offline


    I looked here and found this--I can imagine Bukkit could me more resource intensive:
    Players RAM Upload Speed Download Speed
    2 500 MB or more 512 kbps 1 Mbps or more
    3 500 MB or more 1 Mbps 2 Mbps or more
    4 500 MB 2 Mbps 3 Mbps or more
    6 1 GB 2 Mbps 3 Mbps or more
    8 1 GB 3 Mbps 10 Mbps
    9 2 GB 3 Mbps 10 Mbps
    12 2 GB 4 Mbps 10 Mbps
    15 2 GB 5 Mbps or more 10 Mbps
    20 3 GB 10 Mbps 10 Mbps
    30 4 GB 10 Mbps

    People used to be able to join my server but can't now. I can though. People say it's something wrong with my configuration. What do?
  13. Offline


    My server has been running fine for a while, but I downloaded the new build (1.2.5 R.3) and now it says End Of stream whenever anyone (even me) tries to join. please help!

    EDIT: Also now I can't join any other servers...

    I think I solved this one--I think that notepad added a .txt to the file by default. (grins sheepishly)

    @M1sT3rM4n Is pairing server admins with other potential staff included in community building? If you could play matchmaker for myself and some reputable members of the bukkit community that would be great. Otherwise, I'll just keep waiting for mr/mrs right to stumble on my server.

    Yep. But like a merger & acquisition IRL, you have to think about the benefits and costs of bringing said individuals into the community. The last time I attempted a M&A with another community it resulted in much sadness.
  22. Offline


    A merger/acquisition is probably a last resort. I don't want to cause any sadness. The last thing my server needs is drama. I am mostly looking for people to fill some moderator positions and perhaps an admin position down the road for one of those mods.

    If you get lucky and find a community which is dying due to a lack of funding and is willing to be absorbed, then I could live with absorbing some qualified staff as moderators. I want to have a way of getting to know how the potential mod handles situations so they would need to have been active members of some forum, preferably bukkit or

    I need resourceful moderators. Some who have even run servers in the past, but do not want the stress of being an admin. Those who know how to find information, which to my surprise people find harder than I think it is.

    I, by chance, ran into an outstanding and very talented girl who has stuck with me for about a year and a half now. You just have to be patient with talent searches. But given the target age group for MC it's very easy to see through the cloud of smoke that makes up the majority of the immature community :)

    Indeed. My biggest concern is how a person handles situations while communicating with others. I don't want someone who gives people unnecessary information about the internal workings of the server, or does not consider how the words they say will affect the users and whether or not they decide to leave the server. If they are resourceful they can learn how to use the plugins needed for catching baddies, and helping others. However; mr/mrs right would already know how to use a few plguins.

    I'll be patient in my search. I have designed my server to be fairly low maintenance and the users on my server are good at moderating each other.

    Sorry to reply so late, but I like to follow up. That ended up being a problem with our computer. We took it in after it was getting slower and slower and they cleaned up the HD, now it runs fine with no errors.

    So I am running a simple 5-slot server with Hamachi.

    I use a Mac, and I have EssentialsCORE, Towny (all four .jarfiles), iConomy, Randman, and WorldBorder. It's all nice and pretty, everything is updated, but I have a few questions.

    One: What other plugins should I install to make this a better server? I want this thing to be ready by the time it goes commercial.

    Two: The only thing I can figure out how to do with iConomy is /iConomy which shows my balance.
    (Btw I have no towny problems.)

    Third: My friends that aren't staff can't seem to build or destroy in the wildernes. I have my spawn radius set to 16, is that chunks? Because its definitely not blocks.

    The iConomy problem and the spawn problem were researched, and I figured out it was something with permissions.

    I looked up permissions, (btw my YouTube is restricted, I'm 11) and I found NOTHING. NOTHING AT ALL.

    I need to know:

    What permissions are, what they do, and what they look like.

    How to use them, what I can use them for.

    Will permissions solve some of my problems?

    Thanks, please reply, I DO NOT WANT LINKS. Please tell me in a new thread of just reply. I don't want links because the Internet is where I can't find info. And please, only staff reply. Last thing: If you suggest a plugin to me I need a download link and a description of what it is and does.

    I know that was EXTREMELY long, but I really need the help. Thanks! Please reply.
