I can connect to my server perfectly fine using my internal IP, and I have forwarded a port and reserved an IP on my netgear router, but whenever my friends try to connect using my external IP they get the error:
io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection refused: no further information
I also cannot find my port/server on Nowyouseeme or the dinnerbone server connection tester thing, they cannot find my server at all
Everything is set to be pretty much default and my server runs fine with the internal IP, and my port looks fine, Im not sure what I should change, I used 25565 as the internal/external start port and used the internal IP for my computer, I also set it for both TCP/UDP as well, Im not sure what I need to change?
My server is also set to offline mode but I can connect with both online mode on and off, help?
I also got this same error before if I put my internal IP in the server settings for "server-ip" (now Ive left it blank and it works fine)
