Hello all,


I have been trying all night to figure a way to port forward my Minecraft server over AirVPN. As of right now, I added a port forward from 7221(remote port) to 25565(Minecraft Server's local port). I started up the server after adding the local ip of the TAP to the server.properties file and ensuring the port was 25565. (I also tried with just leaving the server.properities file as default) I've tested with firewall on and firewall off just to make sure and that didn't fix anything either. I followed this guide https://airvpn.org/topic/9455-hosting-a-minecraft-server-with-airvpn/ word for word and did it with extra steps. I don't know if someone has got this to work or not, but if so I would love to hear what you did. I did put a ticket in and still waiting a response but figured I would put my question in here as well. I hope someone can come to my rescue.

The guide you linked to, plus:

  1. Don't do steps 4 and 5, leave the IP in the properties file blank.
  2. online-mode=false
  3. prevent-proxy-connections=false

The problem is: Mojang blocks anonymizer services. You can't login to Mojang while connected. Of course this also means you can't verify login names of connecting clients, i.e., use online-mode=true :)


Alternatively, whitelist the IP addresses of a few domains on the machine hosting the server and connecting to AirVPN.

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs is the proper way to heaven.
Same issues are rare! Search for solutions and if not successful open your own threads.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~
