Issues with Port forwarding a Minecraft Server

Hello, I’m trying to setup a Minecraft server for some friends to join.

I’m running into issues with setting it up. I was successful in setting up port forwarding (I think) my friend was able to join but I had some issues as you’ll see soon enough.

Let’s start


Background information.

I have a dual PC setup, Main PC and Second PC, Second PC will be running the server.

Second PC IPv4 (248)

VM Hub > Advanced Setting > Security > Port forwarding (see image below)


So here it looks like I have successfully port forwarded.


Okay, now moving onto the MC Server, I have installed all the files needed and setup a run.bat file

I am now running the bat file

Okay, it’s done, and it should be working.

I joined the server and I break a block and I can’t pick up the Item.

And now I have lost connection.


Now I seem to have lost connection to my internet/ my router is down


Once I type (stop) in the run.bat cmd, my internet comes back up.


So, I have no idea what’s up with this. I know setting it up isn’t as hard as it is right now for me.

Looking for any help you can give me.

Try with the hub in modem mode if that works you can get a router with 1Gb ports.

Re: Issues with Port forwarding a Minecraft Server

The same exact problem here but I can't debug since people are trying use the router for work because of the whole quarantine
