    I recently bought a dedicated machine that came with 13 IP adresses, but I have no idea how to use them.

    On the machine I currently run a server on 64.xx.xx.34:25565, and I want to run another server on 64.xx.xx.35:25565 (I have the IP's 64.xx.xx.34 - 64.xx.xx.46). I tried putting the IP 64.xx.xx.35 in my file, but it only gave me the error "Failed to bind port", when I'm sure that nothing is running on that IP.

    How do I fix this?

    Note: Following this format
    1. What OS are you using? CentOS
    2. What architecture is the OS you are running? 64 bit
    3. What version and architecture is your java install?
    4. Are you running any wrappers? Multicraft
    5. What build of CraftBukkit are you running? 2716
    6. your server.log, and bukkit.yml files.
    7. What command are you using to run your CraftBukkit server? Whatever Multicraft uses
    8. What plugins are you running? Shouldn't matter
    9. What error are you getting?
    10. What have you tried already? Ask a few friends what to do
    11. Have you tried any of the things below? Yes

    Well first of all your not supposed to put your ip into the properties file and second of all make sure you port forwarded properly also if you are going to have multiple servers running off the same ip make them a diffrent port each like on can be 25561 then another can be 25562 or something like that.
    Hope this helped.

    Maybe you should re-read the post? I don't think you fully understood what I meant.

    have you tried contacting your host and asking if they have opened the ip's yet?

    First of all, on a box with multiple IP's and you want to bind a certain one to your server, I'm pretty sure you have to put the IP in the properties file, and second of all I'm not trying to run 2 servers on the same IP.

    Hi, What you should do is in your server.prop. you need to change the one of the server's ports to a different port.

    Example: If one server is on port 25565 (default port) change the other server to port 25566! one tip. dont make it anything less than 25530.... one time I did port 20... thats what email goes through haha. It totally SCREWED my email... -Chase
