Used /kick earlier today to get afk friend off of server, and he couldn't rejoin afterwards, even though I was still playing on it. Tried resetting the server several times, restarted my pc, banned/unbanned him twice. Now no one can join the server. I've used /kick dozens of times before and have never run into this problem. I can still open the server and get on, and in the multiplayer server menu it shows '0/20' for me, with full connectivity. I'm really lost on what to do, and I couldn't find any other posts on any forum/help with similar problems. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
It can't see it apparently. I deleted the port forward I had before, made a new one with the same specifications, and a friend was able to log on for a bit before getting off manually. When she tried to get on again, it didn't work. I port forwarded once more, and that also didn't work.
