Pretty much everything works but i cant get onto the server using my public IP. the port is forwarded and open, i can connect using ipv4. and using my ip + :25565 does not work.
it is not likely a firewall issue since i can get in with another computer on the same router.
what am i not getting right here.
Edit: currently the 'issue' is Can't connect to server. this is when i try to use the public ip.
not being able to connect via the external ip when inside the network is perfectly normal, people outside of the network use the external ip to connect, you use internal ip
