    I have run through as much as I know how to and have read up on forums, but others still cant seem to connect to my bukkit server. I forwarded port 25565 on both my router and windows firewall, but it still shows up as closed when I try to check it. I have included a few screenshots of server properties if that is any help. I'm very new at this, so it is possible I could have skipped something inadvertently. Anyways, any suggestions to fix this will be helpful. Thanks

    You did not port forward correctly.

    Do you see where it says "Local IP Address"? You have to enter your local IP address which your router gives you.

    Here is the easiest way to find it:
    1. Click Start -> Type "cmd" and open cmd.exe. (Windows 7 - Windows XP click run -> type cmd.exe)
    2. Type "ipconfig"
    3. You should see a Local Area Connection with "IPv4 Address" being something like 192.168.1.xxx
    4. Copy those last two numbers into your router and save.

    It should work now!
