How to allow connections to minecraft server on port 25565
Posted June 4, 201445k views
I have set up a droplet running ubuntu 14.04 and I have a minecraft server running. Port 25565 appears to be closed to external connections. I have run the command "iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 25565 -j ACCEPT" however I still cannot connect to the minecraft server. Here is the output from "netstat -pln":
Active Internet connections (only servers)

I have been advised to listen for connections from all addresses however I'm not sure how to set this up. Could someone help me?
I run minecraft servers off of droplets all the time. All ports are open unless you installed a firewall or used iptables to block the port. Make sure your server isant listening on the loopback ip (eg localhost/127.0.0.1).d
