Server hosting problem

    Hey guys,

    Having no luck whatsoever hosting a server and connecting.

    I have forwarded the ports on the router and added the exceptions into the firewall.

    I can see my server and can connect to it via the local connections, but whenever I try, or a friend of mine tries to connect to it via the internet list, we just get join timed out.

    tried everything I can think of but to no avail.

    Can someone please help?

    I had the same problem, and the last thing I did before it worked was reserve the local IP address of my computer in the router configuration.

    It seemed that because every time the router changes your device IP addresses (on reset or whatever), it messes up the port forwarding. So, by locking in my computer's IP address, the port forwarding works and I can now reliably host a session.
