    Time to do everything by text :p

    Try with the port you will run MC on (usually 25565).
    If that doesn't work (as you stated above, it probably won't), the go into your modem, portforwarding area, and portforward MC...

    Need Help?

    Go to, select your modem type, click skip add, then select Minecraft Server and it will show you step by step instructions on how to do it.

    One that it done, go back to and test it again.

    What is your setup?

    Modem > Router > PC
    Modem > PC

    If a router is involved, it gets more complicated...

    Also, have you added an exception to your firewall (if on Windows)?

    That also blocks incoming connections.

    My firewall isnt up and Im on a laptop connecting to my Router if that makes any sense...

    If you don't mind (so i can get a sense of your set-up), go into cmd and type

    tracert -h 5

    All seems fine... The only thing i can possibly think of is you didn't quite port forward correctly :S

    If you want, you can download TeamViewer and make an account (free) and i can look at it if you want...

    That goes for THedyldozer too

    Sure, i will download team-viewer and make an account, because i can assure i HAVE port forwared it correctly

    I've got teamviewer, not to say i barely know how it works :/ but if you could like connect a partner to me or something?
