Q: Why is my server not connecting?
A: Make sure you typed in IPv4 address when you click “Add Server” in Minecraft.
If that doesn’t work,
try placing your IP address instead of IPv4 address. To find your IP
address go to
Make sure your server is RUNNING and DO NOT close your server or the black command
prompt box.

Q: How do my friends join my server?
A: You’re friends MUST type in your IP address, not your IPv4. If they can not connect,
make sure they type in :25565 after the IP

Q: Why can’t my friends join my server? I did everything correctly!
A: You might of done everything correctly, but MAKE SURE you leave uTorrent RUNNING. Make sure you port-fowarded on uTorrent just like how I showed you on the video. If you close uTorrent, you close your port, therefore no one will be able to connect. Leave uTorrent running at all times. You can of course close uTorrent when you are not playing on your server.

Q: How do I port foward?
A: Download uTorrent ☞ Open uTorrent ☞ Click Options ☞ Click Preferences ☞ Click Connections ☞ Type in 25565 for “Port used for incoming connections” ☞ Click Apply and Ok

Q: Can I port foward to my router instead of uTorrent?
A: Yes, you can! Many people don’t know how to port foward on their router, and it could be confusing. Port fowarding through uTorrent is a much faster alternative, since a lot of people don’t know their router login, and don’t know how to access the Port Fowarding / Triggering section.

Q: I tried all the run.bat commands but none of them work. What can I do?
A: Go to this website and it will give you a step by step tutorial on how to fix the run.bat issues you might have

Q: How do I find my IP Address?

Caleb J says:

Is port forwarding through uTorrent safe? Are there any security issues
that I should be aware of when attempting this? i.e. Hackers, virus??? Is
Firewall and Malewarebytes anti-malware enough? Do you add and allow port
25565 on firewall exceptions???And will hosting the server use a ton of
memory, GBs or lag my game . I am using Window Vista. Thanks. =)

Tolgahan Inci says:

Bootskoot589 says:

If NOTHING works for the run.bat code, try this. DO NOT USE THIS FIRST AND

“C:Program FilesJavajre7binjava.exe” -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar

It might give a warning on the file save type but as far as I know it
doesn’t do anything wrong and if it does PLEASE tell me. Also like this
comment if it helped you for others to find it.
