Can't reach server problem

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

My friend recently bought Minecraft so we could play Tekkit together. I downloaded the Tekkit Server thingy from the main page, created the server 'n stuff all seemed to be going perfectly when I could connect to my own server.But unfortunately, it says 'Can't reach server' for my friend. We are on the same Hamachi network, he typed in my IP frankly. I tried turning off the firewall but that didn't help neither. Could you guys help me what might be the problem?

Cheers

Turning the firewall completely off is not recommended, you just need to create a port forwarding for the port used by the server (I think 25565 is default).

You also might still have a second firewall running without being aware of it, maybe the Windows built-in one.

Also, I found that using Hamachi for gaming has mixed results. With a Minecraft client hosting and another connecting, a standard internet connection should work fine. Just find out your public IP address and tell it to your friend. Hamachi is chiefly for LAN-only games that won't connect via internet in the first place.

P.S.: By the way, you should make sure that both of you are actually using the Technic Launcher, and also the same version of Tekkit. You should look up which you are using (cogwheel icon in launcher), and tell your friend to use the same. Only matching versions can play together.

      Hiya hiya! 

      So I believe Dropbox has made it so only those with Dropbox Pro+ can edit their download links (from the 0 to 1). 

      I'm currently looking for alternatives, but haven't gotten any that I've tested to work for me.

      So far I've tried Mediafire, Google Drive, and OneDrive. If any of these worked for you, please help me out by telling me as to how you managed to do so! If none of these worked for you and something else other then the listed did (that is free), please inform me. Thank you!

      Hi,
      I have just followed a tutorial on how to set up a modpack, and I followed all of the steps, but when I run it it just runs vanilla. Here is the link to the pack. Any ideas?
      Thanks!
