    I have portfowarded correctly. I used the port 25565 and checked it as tcp/udp
    When I went to an online port checker tool it said that the port was still closed!
    I don't know what else to do! Please help

    Make sure it is open on your firewall. Also try the tutorial in my signature.

    This is also a very common mistake. Make your IP Address static with PFStatic (My personal. I know Iroh uses the manual way. :)). Very easy. Why? Have you restarted your computer before you want your friends to join? Well, everytime you restart your computer w/o making it static, it'll change the external IP Address.

    Hope this helps!

    How do I do that? Sorry I am unfamiliar with doing that. ( I have windows 8 btw)


    My IP is already static

    make sure you portforward with the same port as in your server.properties. Then, go to http://www.ipchicken.com/ and tell them that ip that comes up

    Is your ipv4 static or your external? If you don't know the difference watch my tutorial for instructions.
