Let me try and explain what is happening as best I can. Bear with me here....
A couple of my friends decided it's time to get a dedicated minecraft server online using one of the free hosting platforms. In this case, Aternos was the selected platform. Note that this server is vanilla.
As for why we don't host our own private server, it's mainly down to our routers not supporting port forwarding or making port forwarding more complex than it needs to be.
We have been playing on the server for some time, but recently, some of my friends have been getting kicked from the server the moment they get their inventory back from the inventory list. They connect just fine, but their inventory causes them to disconnect.
Whenever they disconnect, they get various errors, ranging from a general timed out exception thrown to the host closing the connection. Yet, other players can join and get under way with little to no hassle whatsoever.
Is there anything we can do to the server on Aternos? Or maybe change the settings on the client to help the situation? Anything at all?
