Server and Connection Timed Out

by princess_sparkle_8 » Post

So my friend and I are trying to build together, but we can't figure out how to make a server, but just for us?
-We live in different places
-We have different versions (5.1.1 and 5.3.0)
Is it still possible to play together?
Every time we get close to figuring it out it says Connection Timed Out.
Thanks so much!!!!!!!!

It hard to help you when you only provide a few informations.
- did you try to join your server locally (on your machine) with another client
- did you forward the port on your router
- correct IP and port
- check your firewalls
- working internet connection
