I'm looking to port forward my Minecraft server so that I can play it with my friend who is on a different network.
I am aware that there are other questions on this topic, but they are all specific to certain modems.
My modem is a ZTE MF275R, which is missing some of the inputs on the other modems.
Here is a reference image
IP: 192.168.0.100 (computer's private IP)
Port Range: 25565-25565
When I put these into my router and then Put my router's WAN IP address into minecraft, it gives me this error:
io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection refused:
If somebody could please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix it that would be great.
Thanks in advance,
btw If you are running a minecraft server behind your router then you need to setup a port forward in order to allow your friends to connect. What would you suggest?
edit: When I put in my computer's local IP address I can join the server fine.
The forwarding looks alright for me. Try disabling the Firewall.
If that works add a Rule with the 25565 Port.
