ScubaSteve Posted June 8, 2013 Share Posted June 8, 2013 Hi all, Recently set up my own tekkit server on my laptop, and am now trying to connect to it via my iMac. Problem is, I can't seem to connect, or even let alone ping the server on my laptop - all I get is a time out message after waiting to connect for around a minute. Things I have done: - I have been able to set up the server on my laptop and then connect to it when launching tekkit on the same laptop. - I have forwarded my ports on the router to send port 25565 to the static IP which I have set my laptop to. - I have the exact same version of tekkit running on both computers. - I have tried seeing if the port is indeed open by using the site 'http://canyouseeme.org/' and it confirms that my ISP is not blocking the port. - I added firewall exceptions on the laptop for all the java.exe and similarly named .exes in the java/jre7/bin folder. My laptop is indeed running tekkit with java 7. I also added exceptions for incoming and outbound services on port 25565 in the windows firewall. Might also be good to mention I am using Microsoft Security Essentials on the laptop, and haven't done anything with that. - I have tried connecting via both the local IP on my network and my external IP on port 25565 to no avail. Possible problem: Not sure if this matters, but I had to set tekkit to run in java version 6 on my iMac, or the game will not launch, instead closing after I login when using java 7. Switching to java 6 solved the problem of the game closing itself. Any help on sorting out why I can't connect to the server on my iMac would be appreciated.
