Hello,
I was trying to create a private Minecraft server like many others on here, but my port still is closed. I don't believe I did anything wrong after following online instructions, but it still remains closed. Please help!

#1 Forward the ports to your computer in the router.

#2 Post the following screen shots:

a) Showing how you forwarded your ports in the router.

b) The results of this port tester
http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-port-tester (if you have any computers that run Windows)

(Or if on a Mac computer, A screen shot of the results of the simple-port-tester for mac.)

Lets go from there :-)

I'm not sure which IP address to forward it to because my computer is listing multiple IP's. you can ignore the right side of the image, that's the computer's second screen.
