    Hi there. I'll try to make this simple:
    - I have set up a mac mini for my kids to run a game called Minecraft as a server.
    - I port forwarded my APE to :25565
    - it works great. Have up to 20 players at a time

    Here is what worries me
    - in the last few days I have been getting an ip spammed on terminal
    09:04:31 [INFO] / lost connection
    09:14:29 [INFO] / lost connection
    09:24:11 [INFO] / lost connection
    09:34:39 [INFO] / lost connection
    09:44:17 [INFO] / lost connection
    same ip over and over again. some time 15 attempts long.
    just the port # changing.

    Should I be worried? is there a way to block this ip?

    Thanks for any advise and help. I love the site

    NOt sure I understand

    Sim how is it that this same ip is trying to connect to my server? Sometimes it is every 30 seconds. If it was random ip's trying to connect I would get it. but this same ip over and over again just changing the port number seems like someone trying to access my machine on another port.

    Did you read the first link he posted? It's evidently the Minecraft server list checking to make sure your sever is online. Read through the page.
