I have been looking across the internet for an answer to this problem but, alas, there is none. So I've come here.
I am currently trying to make a new Minecraft server on my laptop. My router is hooked wirelessly to my computer upstairs. I have followed the directions that have been said by many websites.
- I downloaded the Minecraft_Server .exe file from the website.
- I opened it and created a new world. I also typed in localhost and played around for a while.
- I went to my MediaLink properties. I went into the port fowards and entered in 25565 for the begin AND end port. I typed in my IPv4 address, chose TCP and UDP, and enabled them. I hit apply.
Now for my problem. I went to my brother's computer and tried typing down the IPv4 address and it gave me the connection refused error. I tried typing in the default gateway, the external IP address, nothing. I was getting pretty upset.
So my question is, what am I doing wrong? I really want to fix this solution. I have included some pictures to help.
Thanks in advance!
