Hi all,

I have made my own MC server about 2 days ago, and have been playing on it fine with my friends until now. As I try to log on, it gives me the error:

Failed to connect to the server
Connection timed out:connect

My frineds get the same error, and have tried a few things but nothing seems to be working. I would appreciate some help on this, I want to get playing again ASAP.

Thanks a lot. :)

I am sure you have made the server app is still running and not crashed. The other thing I would mention, if this is at home and your router is set to DHCP, your port forwards may not be accurate anymore due to ip address being handed out to other equipment. If your trying to log into the PUBLIC ip, same as your buddy I would check your forwards. If you want to check it local enter the 192.XXX.XXX.XXX or 10.XXX.XXX.XXX address to check server.

Log in from the address 'localhost' from the same machine that the server is running on to make sure that the server is working. If you are gettng errors then, make sure that there are no bad packet errors in the console. These mean that the server and client are not the same/compatible versions. If you can get in, make sure that you can get there from the public address as well (like Surathani mentioned). The public address does NOT start with 192.168 or 10, those starters are for local networks (your house) and your friends will not be able to connect. A good thing to do if you are connecting from home is to always use your public address anyway, since they periodically change if you are not using commercial internet. If you want more info about all of this 'stuff', check the server setup guide in the general help forum here.

Thanks for the help, but nothing seems to be working. I can login with localhost fine and it works, but my friend cannot login, and we have tried everything.

Any other help would be great.

Seems like your problem might be to do with your IP Address,

Check: http://www.whatismyip.com

and try to connect from that address (If it's different of course.)

If the problem is DHCP, you can sign up for something like:

It's explained on the page,
and @That other guy, maybe your minecraft messed up somehow.

Sounds like a port forwarding issue. You may have a dynamic IP, check your WAN IP and port forward again.

I agree with this too!
Check you firewall settings and see if it has been blocked. Also with hamachi u can have someones ip and they tell u the server is on but u still cant join. It can be as simple as adding 25565 to the end as i have to do with my dads server.. Also there our 4 *3 if no hamachi* to log in to the server if yr on the same computer/laptop,
1. Localhost
2. 127.0.0.1:25565 *depends if u have a different port*
3. Check yr ip through yr anti-vrius software (eg Mc affe)
4. Your Hamachi ip: which is up the top near the power button

also you should check your Server settings to make sure u havent ACIDENTLY changed any of the port settings or ip settings

PM me if you have more problems
