I found that it's best to rent them off someone like http://warservers.net Home hosted servers are laggy to hell so no one plays on them.

@Jackster1337: Just a bit of advertising?

@TheTechDude: Pointing fact and a good host.

@Jackset1337: My home hosted Minecraft server has no lag, with 10 people on it.

You don't get the performance from home hosted servers.

Depends on the server and connection, really. A home-hosted server can perform just as well as one that's probably running on a VPS.

LoL people still use VPS servers for games?

None work as well as Dedicated game servers with their own OS made for games.

Are you trying to connect internally (192.168.. / or externally?

I'd set it up on your LAN first. If it's a Windows server you can use the "ipconfig" command in command prompt to find your LAN IP address. You will want to find the LAN IP for the server and then connect to that using your personal computer.

If it's already port forwarded you're going to want to make sure there's no firewalls such as Avast! blocking it and also that your local IP is set correctly within your server configuration settings. It takes some playing around with, but there shouldn't be much more to it.

I have eset smart security,and i think its not blocking the server,firewall is disabled.And I pasted the forwarded ip in the server properties file.
