    Greetings all!
    It's been quite some time since I been posting around here!
    Miss this community, damn grown up life stuff.

    Anyhoo. I run, a small community of players (shameless plug).
    I have everything setup so other people can just connect to which essentially just forwards to my ip address and grabs for the usual 25565. Works just fine!... For everyone but me, playing locally?

    When I try and connect using the url or ip address, I get the " Connection timed out: no further infromation" error. But if I pop in "localhost", boom, I'm in.

    Does it have to do with the fact I'm running xampp with two webservers and modified the hosts file? Or...
    Sorry to pitch such a confusing situation to the masses, but I'm really puzzled by this. Used to work fine :S

    If your server is hosted on the same network as you're joining from, you must join locally. This is completely normal and you can simply join with your IPv4 address, localhost, or even just 0 (zero).
