So ever since the new update came out - as in 1.8, I haven't been able to connect to my own minecraft server. I know this is because I am on the same local network or public ip which causes me to use at the end of my url &override=true

Anyway now that the URL has changed for minecraft classic server I can't connect to my own because &override=true dosen't work now. I'm not sure if there is a solution to this but it would be very helpful.
Thanks,

I have the same problem.  WoM

I have the same problem.  WoM versions before 2.0.1 worked, but it said "you cannot use this software (Odd0002)" and so hacks were disabled.  However WoM does connect to my server from the computer hosting the server.

Probably not important info:
Server local IP = 192.168.1.105
Computer trying to connect IP = 192.168.1.103
Server name = Netbook Muffin Server

This isn't related to the WoM Game Client

This is due to Minecraft.net changing the protocol.

Remove allow-override and setup your server.properties and config to these parameters....

OK

So ive changed my server to not check names but now when I try to connect to any server, I get this message: org.owjgl.LWJGLExeption: could not bind dummy context...

what does this mean all of a sudden?
Well anyway also about playing on the same PC. The host PC is not playable on and a I dont feel comfortable keeping my gaming one on 24/7...
hopefully there can be a URL fix also so you may connect on same ip.

Will bump for good justice.

Same problem, no "&override=true" and server.properties is configured. I'm running fCraft for the server. I cannot play on that machine, while it has loads of CPU power, its GPU amounts to nothing and only adds heat. Still cannot join my own server even with configured server.properties. In the days I've lost ability to be online, I've lost most of my player base. Yell at Notch.

Fcraft

My server was originally running on fcraft.
After a couple of goes the url wouldn't pop up.
So i got Alienator142 to help me make a new server. You
will probably need to download MCforge software, click this link for the main page www.MCforge.com.


i hope this helps you facepalmed,

I FIGURED OUT HOW TO DO IT :D

moujave is right!

add this to the end of your server URL:
?override=true
Hope that helps
p.s. you always used override=true
but it used to be &override=true
So use the ?override=true
