I am setting up a new MineCraft server and would like to use Bukkit but when I try to connect with the client I get "IP Address lost connection" within the server window and within the client I get "Can't connect to server" even on the localhost.

I completely turned off my Windows Firewall and am now getting java.netConnectException: Connection refused: no further information:"

I set up vanilla Minecraft and that works fine. I have port forwarding on, although it wouldn't impact the localhost attempts. With vanilla MineCraft I can connect from another PC but Bukkit is getting the same error no matter where I try to connect from.

CraftBukkit version git-Bukkit-1.6.4-R2.0-b2918jnks Windows 8 memory set to 3G on an 8G system

I have seen multiple of the same issue but the few fixes I have found did not work (turn off online mode, setting op user, adjusting memory, etc.

  • Are you running on the right versions of Bukkit and Minecraft?

    Robert, I was able to finally resolve this. Although I downloaded the recommended version I went ahead and downloaded a newer Development version and it is now working. Thanks for your response.
