My friend and I decided to try making our own 1.7.9 server but we ran into some problem with ports.
I followed this guide and did a bit more research and I was able to connect to my server, but my friend couldn't get his server with his despite using the same method as I did.
First, I got my IPv4 address:
Then I set my ports:
Then I allowed the port in my firewall's advanced settings:
Then I used canyouseeme.org to check if the port is open.
DMZ is set to my internal IPv4 address (we changed it to his when we try to get his server up)
At first mine did not work, but after reseting the modem and giving it 5 minutes or so, I was able to get on with my public ip obtained from ipchicken.com
I tried getting my friend to follow the same step but idk why it doesnt work for him.. anyone know what could have possibly gone wrong?
We are both connected to the same modem. I used port 25565 and he used 2224, a port that is not used by anything. He even turned his firewall off. canyouseeme.org stated that his port is open but when we try to connect to the server, we keep getting the connection refused message. I tried getting him to use 25565 as well (modified the NAT rule changing my internal ip to his)
