Could not bind to host localhost

  1. Hi,

    Been struggling with Bungee for the better part of a 3 hours now and I give up. I keep getting this error whenever I use either my server IP or, . I have tried what the few forum posts I could find suggested and still no luck.

    I am using a VPS running unbuntu 13.04 and multicraft as my control panel.

    Before you start your server, try typing:
    netstat -ntlp | awk '$4~/:*25565$/{gsub(/\/.*/,"",$NF);cmd="kill -9 "$NF;system(cmd)}'

    Are you running spigot on port 25565 too?

  4. Yes my hub server is running on that a problem?

    Yes, bungeecord is a server in itself, it can't "share" a port.

    It's like:

    Players -> BungeeCord(25565) -> Spigot/Craftbukkit(other ports)

    You can choose any port that's not in use by other programs, but players should never be allowed to connect to it, you need to either firewall it or bind it to localhost if they are on the same machine.

  6. Ok that worked, I can see it if i use MC. I am still confused on how to connect to my servers, but this is a step in the right direction. Thanks for your help.
