Either with 127.0.0.1 & hosts/dns-name. but my brother from outside cannot connect(server might be offline). So now I have some questions, i the hopes of resolving my problem. 1. Do I need this hosts entry for anything else but me being able to connect with my dns-name instead of "localhost"? 2. is the entry "127.0.0.1 dns-name" sufficient/correct? 3. why do i need to specify the dns name in the config file?
besz regards. thanks for any help in advance.
This tripped me up too. The address that has to be added to your hosts file is your internal IP. I picked up a dynamic dns address to point to my external address. then specifically pointed it to my internal address on the hosts file.

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

Then this in the xmage server config

<server serverAddress="xmageplayersmtg.ddns.net"
serverName="XmagePlayersMTG-Server"
port="17171"
secondaryBindPort="17175"
