People have been complaining that there server says offline when they upload it to a server post on Planet Minecraft. Here are some things to do:

  • If it is a hamachi IP (indicated by a IP starting with 5.) it will not show up as online on Planet Minecraft, the reason behing that is we have to ping the server, and if a response comes back we know it's online. This is why you notice a IP that looses connection every once and a while on your server if you run one with a IP posted to Planet Minecraft. It can not reach the hamachi servers.
  • Have you port forwarded? http://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/how-to-port-forward-your-minecraft-server-windows/ Make sure you have followed those instructions if you haven't.
  • Do you have a firewall on? If you do, disable it and look again.
  • Is the IP correctly on the IP address field on the server post editing page? Make sure it doesn't contain a port at the end (ex :25565) the port should go on the next field.
  • If your IP starts with 192.168 then it is a internal IP. Go to http://www.whatismyip.com

Hi, my firewall is blocking your pings. What is the IP to whitelist?

When I was making my server, I noticed when I didn't have my computer working, I had no default gate-way, un-enabling me to port-forward. It took 3 days to get this computer working and I now have a non-Hamachi server running un-smoothly on my computer. Lol.
