    I have the latest bukkitGUI but the port forward will not work. My server is running and I can get on but my friend's can't. Can someone help me? Its allowed to run on my router.

    @KatTheGamerXx And on your firewall? Is your friend connecting to the external IP?

    @KatTheGamerXx Have a good internet? Time out happens when packets aren't sent in time.

    I got amazing internet. The bukkit thing won't let me make a port forward for it

    Port forwarding is and has always been an experimental feature.
    These are the requirements:
    • Your router should support UPnP
    • UPnP should be enabled
    • There shouldn't be another port-forward entry for the same port, with a different IP.
    Also, even while port forwarding might work, the GUI can't alter your firewall. So you'll have to check if you're using a firewall, and if you are, you should allow port 25565 for minecraft to work.

    If UPnP isn't supported by your router, you can still add a port forwarding rule using your routers default method (in most cases, you have to surf to your router's web interface, at 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, or something else like that)
