Hello and welcome.

Minecraft Server extern is simply the name of your Mac. Change the name in System Preferences > Sharing > Computer Name: and it will change in Terminal.

OK...type hostname and press the Return key in Terminal and see what it reports.

Also...

-Are you running OS X Server?
-Have you edited the hostconfig file for any reason?
-Have you connected via SSH or have access to a computer named Minecraft Server extern?

1. I'm not sure. Where can I check?
2. Not that I'm aware
3. I once set up a port release for my Mac on my router, if that's what you mean. I can try disabling it.

1. You can check if you are running OS X Server versus OS X in  > About This Mac, or look for the OS X Server app in the Applications folder. You would have purchase the OS X Server app separately from the App Store.
2. That's good.
3. Disable that, restart, and see if things go back to normal.
