    Failure to connect, even for the admin

    Hi, I downloaded teamspeak 3 server and went through the youtube tutorial provided by teamspeak to see how to set it up. I have followed every step exactly as shown, but still neither I or anyone else can connect to the server. My IP address is correct and I have forwarded all the necessary ports, but I still can't seem to be able to connect. Can anyone help?

    Hello

    To verify if you forwarded port is ok, test with :
    www.canyouseeme.org

    Have you an error message in your server log ?

    Just:
    <14:22:00> Trying to connect to server on 79.71.197.50:9987
    <14:22:06> Failed to connect to server

    And when I try to verify that the ports are forwarded I get this message: Error: I could not see your service on 79.71.197.50 on port (30033)
    Reason: Connection timed out

    I tried these for the other two ports aswell (9987 and 10011)

    Your IP doesn't answer to ping request.

    Are you sure of this one ?

    I checked with www.whatismyip.com and I got that IP.

    Although when I went into cmd and typed ipconfig /all it didn't return with an IP address, so I'm not sure.

    Whatismyip show you your external IP
    ipconfig show you your internal IP

    Have you an error message in your server log ?

    The only error message I get is "failed to connect to server".

    I know the teamspeak client works because I can connect to other servers except my own.

    Which IP do I need to use for the server, and where do I find it on a Windows Vista 32-bit operating system?

    You need to use the internal IP to connect to a server on your LAN. You give your external IP to other people outside your LAN so they can connect.

    How do I find out what the internal IP is and the IP I give to the others?

    Another point, it won't even let me connect to "localhost" as the address.

    The IP you get from http://whatismyip.com/ is what you give people outside your network. You need your LAN IP which most likely starts 192.XXX....

    go to START->RUN and type CMD. Type IPCONFIG and you will see your LAN IP address.

    Is the server on the same PC as your client? If so, localhost should work as an IP. Are you positive the server is running? Did you close that black box that opens when you run the server? That is your server and if you close it the server stops.

    When I type IPCONFIG it doesn't tell me the LAN IP address, just the IPv6, IPv4, Subnet Mask and Default gateway.

    The IPv4 address is your LAN address. (this assumes you are behind a router)

    I tried installing Teamspeak server 3 on my other PC and it works perfectly, I can connect to it and so can others, but when I turn the PC off, we all lose connection, which is fine, because that's supposed to happen. What I don't understant is why it doesn't work on my laptop? Would deleting the server and trying to install it again work? Is it worth trying? I would still need the IP addresses though which I can't seem to get on my laptop. I also tried using the PC's IP address the 192.168.*.* one and it does't work.
