Sorry if this is wrong place to post this. One week ago I made MC 1.7.4 server for me and my friends and it worked without problem, but 2 days ago we started getting this error: "java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: No further information". I cheked every setting and I can't find anything that is wrong. I tried googling and searching but was unable to find a way to fix this. If you have any suggestions please post here. I tried following:

- Disable firewall and antivirus completly (firewall also with advanced settings).

- Try running minecraft on other ports (1500, 2500, 1234). Other applications that require port forwarding work fine.

- Reinstall Minecraft, No-IP (using it for IP, also tried using my IP to connect), Minecraft Server (tried using new map, still didn't work).

Additional info:

it worked once when friend joined at same time I started server, however other people weren't able to enter server and when I restarted it noone was able to join.

I can join fine using localhost.

A better way to use a minecraft server for friends is to use a program called Evolve and just have the server set to the lan IP for Evolve and have people connect to that IP. Makes gaming with just friends easier because it acts as lan, so no networking problems.

If you're planning a build, read >>this<< thread before posting and format you post accordingly.


It's food for thought. Nobody said you had to eat it, but why would you want to starve yourself?

I had the same problem and i fixed it. The reason it happened was because my router had assigned my server computer a new IP address. the new address was and my old address was i had to open the server.properties file in the minecraft server directory and change the address line (server-ip= to the new address.  You can view your current ip address by going to start: run type CMD then type the command IPCONFIG you will see IPv4 address that is your current IP address. You can cure this problem through your router by assigning a static address to your server computer.
