    Hi guys! So a few weeks ago i had an awesome minecraft server me and my friends were working on. It was up for about a year before that with no issues. Then, a few weeks ago I went on vacation. When I got back and now try to get onto the server, it just pings out. The server still starts up and I can join via Localhost, but my IP is no longer working for the server. Is there any resolution to this issue?

    it has not; that was my first thought too but the ip address is still constant.

    hmmm any other ideas out there?

    Go to and toss your ip & port in there and see if it can see you. If not, then you should try re-port forwarding as your IPv4 address might have changed, even if your external IP hasn't.

    Two IPs to worry about in your situation - the LAN IP address which may have changed and would make port-forwarding send packets off to nowhere, or the external WAN IP address. So "it didn't change" doesn't suggest you've checked both scenarios.
