Minecraft server, can't connect via external IP?
I got my minecraft server starting with more ram, but when I try to connect from my laptop using the IP it doesn’t work. I have the actual server hooked to the internet via an ethernet crossover cable sharing the internet to the minecraft server. Is this messing up my connection? I need to know how to set this up ASAP.I have the ports cleared in the firewall.
