View Full Version : Trouble with Minecraft :(

Jun 7, 2011, 06:14 PM
Hi guys,

Long time user, first time poster! Hopefully I have put this post in a useful place! My apologies if it is not.

I purchased and installed minecraft on my 13' MBP (late 2009) and it runs swimmingly in single player. My problem comes when I try and connect to any multiplayer servers or try to host my own!

I have followed several online video's and forums to forward a port and run my server. But whenever I enter an IP adress of a public server etc it says 'connecting' for several minutes and then finally connection timed out. And when I try and enter my own IP to enter to my own server it correctly starts the game with me in it - but 10 seconds later my whole Mac disconnects from the internet!

My next step is to install windows 7 via parallels (maybe XP, because I want to play older games) and try and run my server from their, but does anyone have any advice re this issue? It seems weird my whole connection would drop?
