My server's been having a lot of problems in 1.6.4.

When I finally figured out what the problem was, I fixed my server.

That was a day before 1.7.2 came out. When 1.7.2 came out, I updated my vanilla server to 1.7.2 and still no one, but me (localhost) can get on.


  • Checked my firewall settings,
  • Re-portforwarded,
  • Tried the .exe AND .jar server files they have on

What's the problem, and how do I fix it?

Try deleting and recreating the firewall rule. – Lumberjack Nov 6 '13 at 2:45
@Lumberjack May have it right. If you can connect locally, your server hasn't stopped working, just your networking setup has. Your firewall may no longer recognise this server as the same program, if it's using a triggered forwarding rule. – SevenSidedDie Nov 6 '13 at 3:16
What error message are people getting when they try to connect? – Studoku Nov 6 '13 at 17:11
the error message that people are getting is: Failed to connect to the server timed out: no further information – Omnikron Nov 8 '13 at 0:44
I tried what Lumberjack suggested, deleting and recreating the firewall rule. I didn't work... Thanks for trying to help tho – Omnikron Nov 8 '13 at 0:52
