    Potential culprits include the local system's firewall, incorrect configs, or bad NAT settings. Have you tried scanning from an external source? Did you forward 25565 to the correct internal address?

    When someone outside your local network (the Internet) connects, they need to use your external address.
  3. Check the port at http://canyouseeme.org/ if its open then it will tell you, and that would mean there is probably some configuration issue you are having. If it says its closed or cannot see it then make sure you properly forward the port. My guess here is that you have a configuration issue. Can you please pastebin you server.properties file?

  4. the server prop file should just have * for ip and 25565 for the port, which is default ..

    his "computer" if it has a firewall should have the port open
    his "router" if it's a stand alone, or combined in the modem, should have a port forward setup for public on 25565 to internal (192.*whatever he has for that computer) on 25565.

    and it should work.
