Hi all I am trying to setup a minecraft server and have got the properties file set with my internal ip 192.168.8.101 and using the default server port 25565. I made my ip static and added a port forward to my router. I have added a rule in my firewall for this and have tried with my computer firewall disabled and the router firewall disabled. I gave my friend my external ip with the port 25565 to use to connect and still doesn't work.... if I type netstat -a in command prompt, the port 25565 shows: Listening What am I doing wrong???
