Alright, so about more than half a year ago I owned a server. There was so much going on like drama and crap like that, so I lost interest in Minecraft. Anyways, here is the problem. I have deleted everything, and started fresh. I download the most recent jar and used this: Code:java java -Xmx3072M -jar craftbukkit-1.5.2-R1.0.jar -o truePAUSE as me run.bat. Since I un-portforwarded, I redid the portforward on my Netgear Genie. (regular 192.168.x.x) I have let the port 25565 through my windows firewall for UDP & TCP for In and the Out. The problem is, that my one of my two friends can't join. ( Yes, I know, I sound like a newb. ) It might be because my friend that can join is in my city, but my other friend is like 1-2 cities away. I've forgotten much of what I had known nine months ago. Can someone here on Bukkit help me fix this? :/ P.S. I am making my server a private server, for just my friends, not a public one. Things I have done: Re Portforward many times Delete the server & start again. (Many times) Searched the internet for a solution Follow many tutorials Turn off my firewall Re let through the ports through my firewall Thanks in advance, Sam (Zeustehalmighty) I will be back in the morning so I can message back.
