Ok this is my problem, I have firewalls turned on my computer along with antivirus for testing purposed only for the time being. I have fire walls turned off on the modem as well. Because I have the Clearwire wimax, I had to go through and port forward the port to the router first. Using the Routers Wan IP address given to it by the modem. I went into the router, port forwarded the IP address with two separate entries of udp and tcp, of 192.168.2.18 at 25565. I started up the server, server connects fine on local machines connecting to the network using the local ip address of 192.168.2.18. But cannot connect using the DNS of my internet. canyouseemy reports my port is infact open and not being blocked by my isp so this has to be a setting somewhere I"m currently missing. I have the server.properties setup correctly as well, I will include this in the post. I am running Java 1.6.0_23-b05 and Craft version 1.6.6 (least thats what is says in the log) As I said seems to be correctly configured. This is the router port page. As I said previously, its setup correctly as well. Server Log: Current Server Files: It also can't be the computer, because the computer is locally hosting correctly and the firewall and antivirus software is turned off. I'm either missing a setting in my wimax, which I doubt, or I"m missing a setting else where that i have no idea about. Any help is horribly appreciated. Because connecting to outside the house would be grand, but that nasty little connection refused error is driving me bonkers. Thank in advance.
