guys PLS quick help... i am running my forge multi-player server with a bunch of weightless mods.. i tested they're all working and deleted MANY of them because of crashes
i can play the server by myself on MY own private ip... i just cant figure how to make my friends play on it! i tried inserting my public ip in the direct connect, public ip+25565 and both give me an exception:
connection refused, no further information. i DON'T have access to my router, as i'm sharing it with my traveling neighbors (under their permission) so i cant use the default port forwarding way BUT i have a portforwarding program: portmapper. so i did the forwarding thing with both options but still not able to play on public ip.. ANY idea??!? i need it asap as i need my friend to join me to complete my modded survival series
Second: You only port forward on your computer if it's directly connected to the internet, ie not a router, mobile device, modem. If you use a router or similar you have to do the forwarding onto the router not the computer.
