Can anyone help me port forward for a server on minecraft
what type of router do you have? [MENTION=334]Yomankeenan[/MENTION]
Me to. I have a Dlink Dir-625. I know how to do it, but for some reason it never works.
usually there are two ports you must open, i don't know the exact numbers off hand but you can google them pretty easy. Then you also must open TCP/UCP ones, not just one but both. When you try, what happens? I had trouble sometimes but minecraft is one of those games that doesn't always work and sometimes Himachi is better.
[MENTION=317]Vballs[/MENTION] Its a crappy router I got from bell a 2Wire 2701HG-G
Try this guide and see if it works, lemme know if it does or doesn't
^ that is a tool to check if the port forward worked. You may need to restart your router/modem or computer for it to fully work
i now the ports. there both 25565. And i know how to get my ipv4 and everything. It just doesnt work....
[MENTION=554]PurpleWarPanda[/MENTION] are you sure you did it correctly?
thats a link i found for your router. Usually this website works but I have never actually used your router.
If this doesn't work, himachi is a good way to connect to people but it limits you to 5 people I think. Sometimes you have to adjust the minecraft server stuff properties also.
[MENTION=317]Vballs[/MENTION] Yeah im using hamachi right now but it sucks cuz its just 5 people thanks bro
Didnt work. I really dont whats wrong.
Before my dad finally agreed to give me access to the family router, I used a popular torrent downloader called "uTorrent".
You can run/keep 1 port forwarded at a time with this program. Simply download it, Go to options>Preferences>Connection
Then change the listening port to whatever you want to have forwarded for a server
Please keep note, doing this can slow down your torrent downloading speed if you pirate games all the time like me.
I'll give this a try. Hopefully it works!
I downloaded it and everything. But whats the ip i use to connect to the server? if its your external ip then i did something wrong..
In order to get a custom server ip adress to connect to, I used a service called no-ip DUC
Create a host here: http://www.no-ip.com/ With whatever settings
download no-ip DUC and make sure you adress is enabled, and then run the server on the same computer.
This combined with the port being listened to by uTorrent can host a full internet minecraft server, or servers for most other games.
