I am running Apache2 for my HTTP server. I also have an ssh server running and multiple Minecraft servers running. I've been trying to figure out how to make it so people connecting to my minecraft servers just have to use a url and not a url and a port.
So it did work for me and when I used the URL in a web browser it routed me to the URL+port, but since Minecraft tries to connect with port 25565 it didn't work for that. So I now have Apache listening on ports 80 and 25565, so when Minecraft tries to connect with port 25565 using the URL it would be redirected to a different port 25566.
This isn't working though. Am I going about this correctly or am I missing something? I have Apache listening on ports 80 and 25565, I have one server running on port 25566 and the other running on port 25567. I checked if I was routed correctly and I was, all the ports I am using are all open on my modem and computer. Should this work or should it not? I must be missing something.
25576 , 25566, 25565, 3 servers ,,, could ya clear me up ?
sometimes if you test port forwarding behind the router , it can hit you on the walls instead of local IP ...
for exmple my web is running on 192.168.4.100 and 192.168.4.1 ( router ) forwarding incoming 80 port to it. but from a a second PC say 192.168.4.22 if trying to hit 184.108.40.206 or domain name , it wont respond web server but router management itself...(had to build a local DNS server to fix this )
In simple words , some routers will port forward only external connections, not local ones .
test it using a mobile connection or ask a friend
there is a free tool : canyouseeme dot org where can test ports and / or open services
Best of all , try posting here a schematic or a diagram to understand better . try using less words as I am from Romania eastern Europe so i might be difficult understanting
i attached a picture here , tell me if it is correct
Yes that looks correct, but I think the connection out from the Minecraft server needs to be 25565. Explanation below.
ok here are the ip and stuff.
External ip: 220.127.116.11
Computer ip: 192.168.0.12
The first Minecraft server is listening on port: 25566
The second Minecraft server is listening on port: 25567
Appache is listening on ports: 80 and 25565
When trying to connect to a Minecraft server Minecraft uses port 25565 by default. That is why Appache is listening to port 25565.
Appache would receive the traffic from Minecraft and the index.php (you told me about) would route it to one of the Minecraft servers ports.
When using the URL I want to forward to a different port in a web browser it works it tries to connect to the URL:Port. When trying to use the URL to connect to a Minecraft server Minecraft cannot establish a connection. This is the same for when I use some PHP code to get server info. the forwarding works, but the connection can not be established.
well ,from my point of view , you should have a main maincraft server on port 25565 default , and there using some plugins to present to the client different server connection like domain:25567 and domain:25567 that points toward different servers.
Or some tcp sniffer that traps vanila and pixelmon words on port25565 and reroute it in different servers , solution i cannot rely on.
Basicaly , like assault cube game main server , where all clients goes , and from there select broadcasted IP : port
Just to be sure .... minecraft client side is standalone software or just playing live within brower ?
If it is within browser , it should.ve been working by now , if it is a standalone software, then surely not !
I've seen stuff about use nginx as a reverse proxy to route traffic server side, but I never got that working. I've also seen stuff about Apache routing traffic, but I never got that working either.
I have not got it working to where I want it just using an ip, but I did get it working. The player has to specify the port, but it's better than waiting for another solution to run two servers. The query for my webpage is also working.
If your willing to help me out though I would love to still try and figure out if this is possible.
