    hmmm.. im really not sure what else to try here I'm running out of ideas. I guess you could try to plug your internet directly in your comp instead of passing through your router to test if its really the router who is blocking your ports. but even then I still have no clue how to forward you port via the few choices your router is giving you.

    sorry man I really wish I could get your server to work.

    Do you see anything in your router settings that are along the lines of DMZ? If you do, you can configure your computer's IP to be a DMZ. It will allow all ports to connect to your computer but this will bring along risks as well.

    But seriously folks....

    Then perhaps you have a locally-installed firewall on your machine that's blocking the port, so it's able to make it from the router to the computer, but the computer's firewall is blocking it before it's reaching the endpoint (the Minecraft server process). Or you actually DON'T have port forwarding set up correctly.

    The reason there's nothing available on the internet is because the issue you're having is waaaay too general. If we were automobile mechanics, then you just told me that gas is not getting from the tank to the engine. Well, there are many things that could be at play there, the tank could be empty, or have a hole in it, or the gas line is cut, fuel injector is fried, fuel pump not working, I could go on and on.

    When you're setting up port forwarding, you should be intimately familiar with every stop or possible point of failure from the moment a packet with the specified port number hits the WAN side of your internet connection all the way up until it's being received by the application that the packet was meant for.

    Without that knowing the goings-on of the computer/network that well, you'd better know how to troubleshoot, IE, trying it in Safe Mode With Networking, trying on a different port, or trying from a different computer, or trying to port forward for a completely separate application, ensuring you're using the right external IP address or domain name, verifying you're not sitting behind a double-NAT... Much like the vehicle situation, I could go on and on.

    And without knowing your computer/network, or how to troubleshoot, you've got to ask yourself, is running a server really your thing?
