So, As you read in the title,whenever my friend tries to join my minecraft server he gets the "timed out" error.
1- I have port forwarded and checked if it wokrs by various sites and softwares and they all say the port is open.
2- I have disabled both my windows and router firewalls.
3- I have done everything the internet can provide.
4- I checked that gave my friend my external IP not my internal IP.
5- I made a server whitelist and put him in it.
He still can't join my server no matter what, even though i can join other servers.
I'm a bit new to minecraft server hosting so please be as helpful as you can.
Please help I'm really desperate.Thank you in advance.
Can he join other servers fine? Do other people have that issue?
