Dont know, I dont play minecraft. Just make sure your firewall software isnt blocking minecraft or java, also make sure in the server config file that the server IP is left blank. :wink:

But it is your upload speed that will make the difference, it also matters where the other people are connecting from as well.

You can have great download speed but if your upload speed sucks then hosting games will lag since it is the upload that matters when hosting. You have to send the data to every users, so the host server requires much more upload bandwidth that it would for just a normal player.

If you dont have the bandwidth to handle it then a server would be a lot better.
