I have recently set up a tekkit server on my home computer, but after finding that my ip was dynamic i have used no-ip.org:
sheepland.no-ip.org is my server address now
it is the same as my remote ip, listed with a DUC app.
I have port forwarded on my router and I have added exceptions for the firewall to allow inbound and outbound connections for both of the options on my firewall for port 25565.
The ip address on the properties file is left blank also.
I have, and so have my friends, tried to connect to:
sheepland.no-ip.org:25565 and it says cant reach server.
However, i have added it to the tekkit server list, where after a while it says it is online and displays how many people and the motd are connected to it.
After this, I have tried again and it still does not connect.
I have tried entering in just the ip (not the sheepland.no-ip.org one), my external not internal one without any luck!!
I do not want to use hamachi, so does anyone else know why this is happening or how I can fix it?
My system is 64bit windows 7 with 32gb ran and i7 processor.
Please can you help!!!...????
***I definitely do not want to use hamachi!!***
I have uploaded a picture of the router port forwarding in case it is wrong:
