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? 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 www.whatismyip.com

If you still have problems with this, please post a comment below.

It could be your internet not allowing port forwarded game servers, I'd call the internet provider.

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.
