For the last few weeks I have read no end of different forums for help to get my Minecraft server working.
I have port forwarded, applied a port trigger, made a firewall exception and turned the router on and off. When I go on a website to test the connection for port 25565 on http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ it tells me that the port is closed.
Also my router is a Superhub Netgear.
Is there anything that I have missed here? I have included a few screenshots below:
That is a Java error meaning it thinks another instance of java is running
Go start | All Programs | Accessories | Right click Command Prompt | Run As Administrator | Press Yes when asked for elevation
Now type: taskkill /f /im java.exe
This assumes you are on a PC Server. On Linux run killall -9 java
After pressing enter it will kill all running instances of Java. Then try running the server again. If a server crashes but is still 'bound' to 25565, you won't be able to replace it with another server. Also if this doesn't work simply reboot your server and try again
What the representative said about DMZ is true BUT you'll have to set up DHCP Reservation in the Router first to avoid reconfiguring DMZ at every equipment reboot. Good luck setting up DHCP Reservation. I can't seem to get it working in R36 (but could about a month ago in R30 ).
