Recently, I made a Minecraft server to play with my friends on. I'm hosting it off an old laptop and playing it from my PC. I have port forwarded my router and I'm using NoIP as a hostname for my friends to join through, and I connect through my public IP (which I get through searching "my ip" on google on the laptop). At first, there were no issues and I played for about an hour with friends before I got randomly disconnected to the multiplayer screen with no error.
I could no longer ping my server and it would look like this I got this error when joining
My friends stayed connected however I couldn't regain connection so we decided to leave it. I made a post on this forum however about 2 hours later, I checked again and I could play fine, so I removed the post. I played for a bit longer then went offline and there were no more issues. I tried logging on this morning but only to get this issue again.
- refreshing the multiplayer menu
- restarting Minecraft
- relogging my Minecraft account
- restarting the server from my laptop
- restarting my PC
- restarting my laptop
- allowing Java and the Minecraft launcher access through the firewall
- checked the ports (25565 is open)
- connecting through "
myip:25565", the NoIP hostname, "localhost" and "localhost:25565" (none worked, and obviously localhost wouldn't)
I can play other Multiplayer servers (such as Hypixel, Manacube etc) but I just can't connect to my server whereas my friends can. I'm not sure why this is the case, any help would be appreciated!
