Port Forwarding Minecraft Server
« on: December 21, 2018, 01:30:03 PM »
Hi, I have an AT&T Modem. I have port forwarded on it many times and know how to do it. I have multiple ports open for console games like call of duty that work just fine, but whenever i open port 25565 for my Minecraft server, it stays closed no matter what. My friends cannot connect to the server, and when i go to online port checkers it says the port is closed. Why is this happening? I have mcafee antivirus plus, but turned off the firewall on it and the port was still closed, so i dont think it is my antivirus. Help would be greatly appreciated!!

Update. When i turn off mcafee firewall my friends can join, but port still says closed on online port checker. What settings do i need to change within my mcafee firewall to allow friends to join server without totally turning off my firewall?

#1 I used Google (or another online search engine) to lookup mcafee firewall add exception

#2 Also do what I did (it does not have to be Google if that is desired) and you will see the answer that comes back.
