If your trying to connect to a server from the XBOX right now you cant.

Minecraft - Xbox Version...
..is highly outdated compared to the standard PC versions, The only reason they put the Connect to IP on the xbox menu is to show that eventually they will be able to connect to Xbox specific servers.

Please note: The game will never be cross-platform; which means PC versions will not be allowed to play with XBox Versions.

I see my server up and running from the Minecraft menu, but when I click on it, I get the message:

Connection Lost
End of stream

What do I need to do to connect to my server?

I play without Bukkit, and I don't know a whole lot :P.

Thank you!

Thats a tricky one there, there could be number of network problems, or maybe a config set wrong. You are using the PC to connect to your server right? You would be shocked at how many people are using XBOX's trying to connect to PC servers. Other then that, There is not much I can do for you here, you will need to open a ticket in your ACP

Hi,

I'm also having trouble with the "Connection Lost / End of Stream" error on my server.

I'm trying to log in using a mac, is this the problem? I hope not!

If you're using CraftBukkit, a plugin might be causing this because CraftBukkit doesn't work with Minecraft 1.3.1 yet. A couple plugins on my server were causing this error on our server.

Also, it might be your network or Java version. Make sure you update your Java version to the latest one and turn of any downloading.

Alright! I noticed a lack of a Permissions Plugins! (Unless that's what EssentialsGroups is, because it Essentials Permissions API used to be called GroupManager) You will need to add something that will allow plugins to differentiate between privileged players (OP's) and regular players. I suggest PermissionsEX as its simple and I have written a guide explaining more on how to use it, with links on downloads!

Here is the GameServers forum post where I describe the permissions plugins and have offsite links to a few Permissions Plugins, if you need help setting them up I can gladly help you there with it more. If you do have one then you more then likely need to have it configured properly. If you need help with that follow the link i listed above and I will help you more with your Permission Needs on that forums post.

Hope this helped! :)

Good question! I Will update my guide after this response... Yes we have been limited on our access of certain files, SERVER.PROPERTIES being one of them. The only way to edit this file now is to;
  1. (Recommended) Backup server
  2. Log into Gameservers Control Panel
  3. Find the server you wish to edit
  4. Choose the 'Config' icon. this tab will allow us to edit those files VIA web editor.
  5. Look for which file you wish to edit. In this case choose SERVER.PROPERTIES
  6. Load the config with the load icon.
  7. Edit what you need edited
  8. Click the save icon.
  9. Restart server.
Hope this helped!
