Arucard Davitto Posted December 12, 2012 Share Posted December 12, 2012 Hey guys, having trouble setting up a server, so far I've downloaded the Tekkit server stuff. I've port forwarded 25565. I've found my internal IP Address by looking at the IPv4 section in ipconfig (192.168.1.XXX) . So I've gone into my server.properties and set the IP Address to that (192.168.1.XXX). Then I've used a laptop to log into it and test it direct connecting to 192.168.1.XXX:25565. Here's where the trouble is. I have two routers in my house. One upstairs and the other downstairs. So it goes Internet > Modem > Downstairs Router > Upstairs Router > PC. Now if my laptop is connected to the wireless of my Upstairs Router it can get into the server using the address (192.168.XXX:25565), however if it's connected to the Downstairs Router it cannot log in. I'm trying to avoid Hamachi/Remobo or any of the other VPNs if I can, they keep giving me trouble. And I don't want to have to subscribe to an online host, because I just want to play with 3 or 4 of my mates. Any suggestions as to how I should proceed? Do I need to portforward 25565 on the downstairs router too? Should I put in the IP address of the downstairs router *and* the upstairs router when I try to connect? Should be using my external IP address? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
