I've portforwarded, I've added java and minecraft on my firewall, I've searched a ton of forums, did all of it and it still won't let anyone else except for me to join
Please send a screenshot of your port forwarding.
Also are you on Ethernet or Wi-Fi?
I'm on WiFi
Here is my Port Forwarding
Completely disable your firewall and try again.
i disabled it but i still dont see it when i check cmd. it doesnt show its listening nor does it show its being blocked
Use canyouseeme.org for testing the ports.
i've done this and it says its closed
Which antivirus are you using?
Can you confimr that minecraft is on port 25565 ?
Try setting two port forwards instead of one. use two protocols. Had problems with other servers when i used Protocol: both
yes it is on 25565 and i am using two protocols
