    It's fairly straight forward, just get it up and running on whatever port and then forward that port in your router to your local IP address. You can use something like DynDNS for a domain name if you have a dynamic IP or just give your friend your IP address (www.whatismyip.com)

    So for example (IPs will obviously be specific to your system, this is just an example)
    1. Unleashed Server running on default port of 25565
    2. Your internal IP address is
    3. Your external IP resolves to
    4. You log in to your router at it's internal address of (again, just an example - your router will /can be completely different)
    5. You forward port 25565 to your address
    6. Friend starts MC and connects to
    Hope that helps.

    Edit: If you change the port your friend will obviously need to append the port number to the IP address. So if you had it running on port 25555 he / she would need to connect to

    You also need to add -XX:permSize=128m to the serverstart.bat before the -jar command.

    Edit: I'm really tired I'm smilies. That's a : P without the space.
  4. Hi!
    I got a friend that recently got an windows 8 pc and he's trying to host an FTB unleashed server. everything is good except for one thing, when he starts the server it's just closing and all i know is that it has something to do with the code in the batch. this is the code: java -Xms512M -Xmx1G -XX:permSize=128m -jar ftbserver.jar
    Do anyone know how to fix this?[DOUBLEPOST=1388845384][/DOUBLEPOST]It is working fine on my windows 7.

    Edit the batch file and add a new line with the command pause and save it. That way when it crashes it won't close the window, but instead leave it up until you press a key and let you see what the actual error message is.

    BTW: this a windows 8 computer w/ a 1TB Hard Drive so it SHOULD be able to handle it...
