So I started a Bukkit server for my friends in school to have a once-a-fortnight zombie-survival. The problem is that my friends keep on Getting the 'Connection failed: timeout' error. I have placed my Default Gateway IP into Config and forwarded 25565 with the last number of my 192.168.1.6 IP. This is what the tutorial said to do. I then proceeded to give my brother the Default Gateway IP and he connected. My friends tried this too and it didn't work. So i gave them my global IP and that STILL didn't work. Any help for a newbie?
