Unstable connect to Minecraft server

Hi all,

Sorry if this is a common problem… I haven’t been able to figure out a solution myself as of yet.

So, my server is sat up and works fine… sometimes… then after a while my external player won’t be able to connect to the server anymore and it appears for them as if the server were down. I tried getting them to use the raw IP to my server instead of the friendly address, which seems to have remedied some of the problems (or maybe it was just luck), but it has just happened again.

What could this be? I have a hard time seeing how it would be a DNS problem since the players are also experiencing the problems with the raw IP, but I’m no expert in the area…

I’ve had mixed success with restarting the playit.gg tunneling service but again, my gut says it was probably just luck.

Many of the times where the external player couldn’t see the server, I could see it working through the IP/address.

I hope there is a fairly easy solution to this, because other than this quite irritating problem, playit.gg is by far the best solution I’ve found for this kind of thing :slight_smile:
