Playing Tekkit not on LAN

Recommended Posts

You missed out hosting the server yourself there, wilduu. You need to port forward the port 25565 to enable your friend to reach the server through your firewall. This is probably the best option if you have a free computer or server at home, or just a fairly powerful computer and it's only going to be the two of you on the server(I've ran about 5 people on my laptop at once, but that any more than that could cause serious lag issues). It's cheaper than using a payed host, and safer than using Himachi(For those of you that don't already know this, if a player on the Himachi network has a virus or other malware, it can easily spread through the Himachi network to other computers, since it provides a loophole through your firewall).

If you want to try this option, just try googleing "How to port forward Minecraft", and you should get some good results on how to do it. The same goes for both of the other mentioned methods, google should provide good tutorials on how to use them.
