    I spent a while with the tech support people of my router company trying to figure out why my port forwarding was not working. Eventually, we got it working again but Minecraft is not forwarding through the set ports. We have confirmed that port 25565 is being forwarded but there is nothing happening. Is there something that I am missing?

    It does not say that there were any issues

    It looks like there is an error in your log there, though I don't know if that is the issue that you cannot connect to your server.

    What version of Java are you using, 32 or 64bit?
    To find what version of Java you have installed open Command Prompt, on windows 10 just search for CMD in start. And run this command: java -version (note there is a space between java and -version). Post what Command Prompt says.
    Port Forwarding is often a little fiddly and if your doing this on a home router, even more so. Do remember that if you don't have a static IP the address you connect to your server with may be different when you start it up. To find the address of your server just Google "what is my IP address" then put the port on the end of that address in your Minecraft Client.

    We can rule out that your server is not opening a different port since the console log does say that its open on 25565.

    You should also try checking that your server has access through your PC's firewall
    To open your server on your firewall follow these steps, or watch this video I made:
    1. Search for "Windows Defender Firewall"
    2. Click on the left hand link "Allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall"
    3. Click "Change Settings"
    4. Press "J" on your keyboard when focused inside the list and look for "Java(TM) Platform SE binary"
    5. Enable all versions of Java in the left hand boxes, and allow under public and private boxes.
    6. Choose "OK" to save those changes.
    If none of these work do get back to me, there could be some more things we can try!

    For java it says
    java version "1.8.0_271"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_271-b09)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.271-b09, mixed mode)
    I have had the port tested by an employee of the company and they said that it was working.
    My firewall is completely disabled at the moment
    All of my other servers on different ports are working (terraria, gmod, etc.)

    ok, lets go back to that error at the beginning of your server starting up.

    Would it be possible for you to download a fresh copy of Bukkit and then run that in a new folder and see if it generates the same error?

    If it does, can you try running the server from CMD, do let me know if you haven't done this before (I am assuming your on windows of course)
