Hey guys, first time posting here, be gentle, I'm quite an amateur at this stuff.
So I port forwarded a server on my router for my friends and I to play and we were happily playing on it for 1 week, then this morning I turn my PC on to play with my friends and I can join but they cannot, so I look at my port on http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ and it's closed! so I wonder if I just need to redo the port forward in my router, but no luck. I then try to use Himachi and that didn't work (although, I've never really used it before so maybe I did something wrong), people couldn't directly connect but I could play on both instances. I've also switched the IP address in the server properties from Blank, to IvP4 to local ip address and still nothing.
I have turned off firewall and antivirus to see if that was the problem but it did not improve. I'm out of ideas and was hoping you fine gentlemen and ladies could help me.
