Problem description: I'm trying to set up a minecraft server for a couple of friends of mine. I can get it to work locally just fine, but it's being incredibly resistant to allowing port 25565 to be forwarded properly. I'm at a loss, since according to my router's firmware, the port is being forwarded. But anyone attempting to connect to it gets a "cannot connect" failure message.
Attempted fixes: I've tried the following:
Following the port-forwarding guide for my router at portforwarding.com
Tried toggling my firewall on and off to see if that was the issue
Tried toggling DMZ
Tried using port scanner at whatsmyip.org to scan 25565. Result always timeout failure.
Recent changes: No recent changes to system
Operating system: Win 10 Pro 64 Bit
System specs: Home Built
NetGear WNDR3400 router
I have Googled and read the FAQ: Yes
