Router is saying that the port is open for my minecraft server but in practice it is not.
I have been trying to set up a minecraft server using my computer. I have set up the server and made sure it was working, now I am trying to allow friends to join. I have gone into the firewall setting for the 5268AC router I am using and configured the port between it and my computer, 25565 in this case, to be open. When I give my public ip to my friends, they cannot join. Is this a configuration issue or is there a problem with the router? I have also used a Port Checker and it says port 25565 is closed when it says in my firewall settings I have opened it.
