    Sup,trying to open up a server for me and the homies to play on but my port refuses to open. To start my ipv4 is and I am using the default port 25565. I Forwarded the port in my gateway (Unifi Control Panel) with both UDP and TCP and allowed incoming and outbound connections in my firewall but when i start the server I cannot connect. Can't even connect through the ip localhost for whatever reason. Rebooted my router in case that was the issue but no go. Whenever I remove the ip from server-ip in the properties file I can connect through localhost. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Do not put in the server-ip in the properties file if you have not got a domain. For you, you can connect to a server on your own pc by putting the server ip in the 'add server' window as 0 or local host. The port number on this refers to 25565. The only way for people to join would be putting in your ipv4 addresss. Sorry dude xD
