hi,

I'm looking for a way to play with my friends, without the threat of griefers and without dependence on other people's server. I've searched these forums, but all the results are from people applying, and using the word lan in their appeal.

So basically, does anyone have a LAN-tutorial for 0.30 creative mode?

regards,
Serris

Just create a server, and

Just create a server, and port forward correctly. Once you've done that, set the server to private in the configuration's file. Then, simply give your friends the link to the server, which should be found in external_url.txt.

Sorry jon, but this didnt work for me..

I port forwarded (25565) to my ip adres 192.xxx.xx.xxx (where the server is located)
Ive tried the same thing on my friends computer but it still doesnt work. I can connect to my own server, but all the others on the network get the server is down error...
What to do now?

Are you putting your local IP

Are you putting your local IP or your public IP when port forwarding?

Open your command prompt,

Open your command prompt, type netstat -n. You should get a large list of numbers and IP's. The IPs selected in red is where you want to look. The number in the blue box is the digit you want to remember when port forwarding. The whole IP is what you will use when port forwarding, you only need to remember the digit(s) in the blue box.

The same problem

I am having the same problem with setting up my server... I opened my routers configuration and forwarded the port to the router address I am assigned. However when others try to connect to me they are given the same error message reading the server is down. I have tried the external link, as well as linking them my IP and port number used. either way. they cannot connect. If this info helps, I'm using a Linksys WRT-150 N router. Like I said I have forwarded the ports, and checked that the ports to forward where saved, yet I still get nothing... I hope someone can help me out, if it's not too much trouble.
