Hi today I am going to teach you how to make a bukkit server.
Step 1: Starting
First go to http://www.craftbukkit.org and download the development build. You could get the reccomended build but that would just leave you with more complications. Then while your eaiting for craftbukkit to load make a new folder on your desktop named mc server. ( it does not have to be named this it is just my preference) Then drag the craft bukkit download into the mc server folder. Then name the craft bukkit download craftbukkit.jar ( this may seam reasonless but it is accualy very important) if you have done all this you should be ready to go onto the next step.
Step 2: Generating
Now that you have your ingredients it is time to generate your server. Create a new text document in your server folder. Openit and type
java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
Press save as and save it as start.bat. Change the type from text to all files and make sure that your coding is ANSI. Then save it in your folder. You can delete the other text document. Then double click on the start and your world should generate. Now you can go on and go into the server localhost but other people won't be able to join. That is the next step.
Step 3: Connecting
Once you are finished with this step anyone should be able to get on your server. First go to start and type in cmd. Click on the command prompt. A black prompt should pop up and then in it type ipconfig Find where it says default gateway, ipv4 and all of that. Then go into your browser and type in your default gateway. Put in your username and password for your router the default is:
Then go into advanced settings and go to port triggering/ port forwarding. Press add new. The input and output port should be 25565. Make shure that it is both tcp and ucp. For your ip go to the command prompt again and your ipv4 is your ip. Type that in and name it minecraft server and save it. Now other peaple should be able to play it.
