SOLVED Difficulty With Minecraft Server
This is another "cant set up a Minecraft server" post ... MINECRAFT EVENTS SERVERS Hoping that someone will be able to help. The server is working on my computer but it is not working on his. MINECRAFT EVENTS SERVERS
Both of our computers are wired directly to the ASUS RT-AC86U router via ethernet cable. His local IP address is 192.168.50.166.
These are the settings for port forwarding:
Service Name Minecraft Source IP: (blank) Port Range: 25565 Local IP: 192.168.50.166 Local Port: 25565 TCP: BOTH
If he is running Minecraft on his personal computer and direct connects to 192.168.50.166 the connection is established. If he enters an external IP (obtained via the "Network Map" page of the router settings) it will return the error:
Failed to connect to the server io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information
I am getting the same error from Minecraft when I try to connect to 192.168.50.166 from my computer.
But here's the kicker ... Everything works when I run the server on my computer (192.168.50.48) and modify the Local IP port forward settings accordingly. I can connect to the Minecraft server using either my local IP or an external IP.MINECRAFT EVENTS SERVERS
