    Ok, sorry for the Tittle, but I cannot stand not talking about this anymore. I did everything I could to PortFoward my Minecraft Server, and I had logged into my router and port-fowarded it. I still don't know if i did it right or not, and I need help. Please help.

    There is a handy website called https://portforward.com/ which has guides for nearly all routers and games. Simply go to their website click "List of all Programs" and select "Minecraft Server". Then you'll have to select your router make and model and voila! You have yourself a guide on how to portforward your router so you can run a minecraft server!

    You can also use http://canyouseeme.org/ to test that you did everything correctly (although it only tests TCP, UDP is a bit trickier to do..)

    @AlvinB I had tried that so many times, I had done it and got everything right, I have Firewall off, and I had the Ipv4 address right. I had followed the guide but it still had not worked!

    What does it say on canyouseeme.org when you try port 25565?

    @AlvinB it keeps timing out, and Im trying to change the ip to be my ipv4
  6. @JctTheCrafter
    Have you made your ip static?

    Also, if you could post a screenshot of your router configuration that'd be great.

    @AlvinB I know I sound stupid, but how do I make my Ip static, and what part do I take a picture of?

    @JctTheCrafter i like http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
    and you cant change your ipv4 to become ur irl ip
    and when you have your firewall off make sure none anti virus firewalls are on(i mean your anti virus can be on) but turn off the firewall on the anti virus if you got it number 2 make sure ur server is on when checking if ur port is open default port on mc is : 25565

    If your parrents are paying for a dynamic IP (some say it doesn't cost any extra, but here your ISP seems to charge for it, depends how often/on what intervals you want it to change), I would much rather keep that. It's safer in regard to constant tracking and ddosing. Basically, your IP address changes (frequently or every month).
