Server Help


Recommended Posts

I had a server on my old computer, and its hard drive broke, I got a new hard drive then I got a new pc for Christmas. I put my public ip in the properties file and in the server ip, and I have port forwarded. On my old pc, my server worked fine, now whenever I try to make a new one on my new pc, it says cannot bind port. I put in my local ip, (192.168.1.) you know what I mean. I put that in my properties and in the servers ip. I can join the server fine but other people cannot. I have removed my firewall and that didn't work. I would like some help. Thank You.

If you are getting a cannot bind port, then it usually means the port you are trying to use is already being used by another program. You could try changing the port in the server properties file, but then you'll need to change the port on your port forwards as well.
