Not connected, Your IP: 34.239.157.140

Hey all,

So I am trying to run my own server for friends to connect to. I have read as much material as possible but still couldn't have my minecraft server reachable by my friends, so i asked for AirVPN's help but they said everything was perfectly fine as far as they could see. I really have no idea what could be wrong: I use windows 10, I don't port forward from the router, I'm port forwarding using AirVPN's service, the local address and port match the server properties in the file server.properties, I give my friends both the address of my public I.P(the AirVPN server) and the DDNS server name and port number but methods make no difference, I even turn my firewall off to see if it makes a difference but alas for nought. Yet the server works when not using AirVPN, I know because I test it on canyouseeme.org. And yes I do use the TCP test in the port forwarding section of my client area but it will always say error '110 Time out'. 

 

But if anyone has any other suggestions on what I could do, or even where i could read up more please, please do tell me. I've been trying to do this now for months.

So much thanks in advance if you can help me get this project to work.

Would you kindly post your server.properties? And maybe the OpenVPN log as well. Use two separate spoilers.

What I have found is that on the US servers the connection to my openvpn server is blocked. When I switch over to a non US server I can connect just fine. I spend countless hr researching and testing with my pfsense config only to find out this was the problem. I was able to get around this for some time by switching the port I was forwarding, this however has not worked for me lately.

 

I am not sure who should be addressing this issue ( guessing AIRVPN ) but it is a real problem. The fix I found works fine, just change to a non-US server when you are planning to use you openvpn server to connect your laptops, phones, etc...

 

Hope this helps.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy. That's a good idea, however I use European or sometimes Asian servers so it can't be that. I'll post up some pictures soon.

So I've attached my log and also the server.properties file for Minecraft is thus:

#Minecraft server properties

I would be very glad if this information could help me out in some way.

Leave it empty. Your internal IP is different on different servers, ports and protocols.
