And added port 25565 to my firewall, and contacted my ISP, i added 192.168.0..169 as a static ip for my pc where the minecraft server is hosted.

When someone trys to join by using publicip:25565 they get discornected and get a error message "Connection Refused".

I dont know what to try.

  • Minecraft Java is outside my expertise, but I can give you a few pointers: IP addresses can change over time, so you might want to give your server a fixed IP so it's always As for your public IP, you can try and use a DDNS (Dynamic DNS), so people can find your server using a domain name instead (e.g. myminecraftserver.com). Your device will contact the DDNS server regularly, so it always knows your current public IP. Your router's manufacturer might offer a free DDNS service supported by your router. Finally, check if your firewall allows Minecraft to listen to port 25565.

Add an exception to your firewall or temporarily turn it off.

Port forwarding allows for other devices outside the network to attempt connections to a device within your network - but that does nothing when your device refuses the connection.
