Minecraft on a Static IP?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I'm not sure if this in the right area -it seemed appropriate here- and I was just wondering how I would set up a Minecraft server on a static IP. I know how to do it with Hamachi and wondered if it was kind of the same. IF it is, I have another question: How do I get or make a static ip?

You need a static IP from you ISP. If it changes often then you will have to update teh IP every time you start the server

How can I tell if my IP is already static or not? Do I have to call or can I check it from my network settings? o:

If you just have a regular consumer-grade ISP then it almost certainly is dynamic rather than static.

Check your IP:http://www.whatsmyip.org/
If it changes after a few days or a week it is dynamic.
If not it is static.

It will most likely change only if the modem powers of though.

If you have a dynamic IP you could use Free Dyndns.

http://dyn.com/dns/dyndns-free/

You sign up for free, give it your external I.P address (Of the machine running the server), pick a name such as "Myserver.dyndns.org" and it points players to whatever your current external I.P is

That's what we use for our private server. Easy as can be.

It's been a while but you should just have to give it your external IP on the host machine.

http://checkip.dyndns.com/

Also make sure you have the proper port forwarded on your router for Minecraft traffic.

You will never get a static IP from your ISP. It may not change often, but its possible for it to change at any time.

Buy a server if you'd like a true static IP.

And there is no work to setting up a minecraft server, its as simple as running the server file, as long as the respective ports are open.

So it wouldn't work if my port happens to be closed correct?
