  • First thing you should do, is give us some more information. We can’t really help you without knowing some details.

    • What kind of services did you install?
    • Do you have any logs we can check?
    • Did you check the service is running?

    First thing I would recommend is checking your firewall. Do you have IPTables or UFW? You need to open the port before you can connect.
    IPTables:

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 25565 -j ACCEPT
    

    UFW:

    ufw allow 25565/tcp
