Minecraft Server not working.

Basically I did the port foward like the video said, udp/tcp and 25565 and i chose my computer and everything but when i send my friend my public ip, it just doesnt work. I know that this is so vague and i might look dumb typing this but i got no where else to go. If yall need more info about my situation just aks and ill be glad to provide it. Thanks.

   Clearly not your public IP address.  (That's why "usual problem" "1"
is number 1.)

 

> [...] i dont have that much knowledge on it.

 

   I know almost nothing about it, but a quick Web search for that
number suggests that it's "smart", which may not be ideal for this
situation.

   You might try searching around a little to see if this thing has a
"bridge" (stupid) mode, which would disable its router functions.  Or if
it's possible to do all the other stuff on its router, and configure the
R6700v3 as a WAP.  But the router-ness of that gizmo is the source of
the port-forwarding trouble when you're using the R6700v3-as-router with
it.

 

   Ask your ISP?

   "Basically" is seldom the way a useful problem description begins.
This one seems to be no exception.

 

> [...] I did the port foward like the video said, [...]

 

   Oh!  "the video"!  I should watch "the video" to puzzle out what you
did.  Thanks for not including a link.  I hate watching low-quality
"instructional" movies, especially ones which apparently didn't do the
job.

 

> [...] when i send my friend my public ip, it just doesnt work. [...]

 

   "not work" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

 

> [...] I know that this is so vague and i might look dumb typing this
> [...]


   You think?  Perhaps providing some useful information about what you
did, and what happened when you did it, would work better.  Try to
imagine that your reader wants to replicate what you did, and has no
psychic powers, and, hence, can't see what you did or what happened when
you did it.  Don't know what your "my friend" did, either, or what
happened when he did that (whatever it was).

 

> Model: R6700|Nighthawk AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

 

   Is that accurate?  Not an R6700v2 or R6700v3?  Look for "Model" on
the product label.  Firmware version?  Connected to what?

Re: Minecraft Server not working.

Okay first its rev 3, second, i just didnt know what to include in it. V1.0.4.102_10.0.75 Connected to my pc via ethernet.

When i said video i meant alot, basically what they said was to go to ipconfig, check what is deafult gateway and type it into the browser, next do the port fowarding. https://imgur.com/zHmBLHb. Then launch my minecraft server and i can join since i use localhost but my friend used my public ip but he got this. https://imgur.com/fVCuFSm
If you want one of the vids that I used here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0mFiBBVvnU
Apart from this. I dont know what other info i could give you. I mean i tried one of those websites that check if your port foward worked with the minecraft port and it said it didnt or that it was "closed".
If you need anything else im happy to give you more and sorry for the vauge message.

   That's the unimportant part of the answer.  And to your ISP?

 

> [...] https://imgur.com/zHmBLHb [...]

 

   LAN IP addresses like "10.0.0.x" suggest that your R6700v3 is
connected to another router, which is a problem ("usual problem" "1")
for port forwarding.

 

> [...] i can join since i use localhost [...]

 

   That would be "usual problem" "3", if it had failed.

 

   Did _you_ try your "my public ip [address]"?  Did you try the
WAN/Internet IP address of the R6700v3?  Did you look at "usual problem"
"1"?

 

   What is your "my public ip [address]"?  If you're worried about
revealing secrets, then the top half of an address, "a.b" out of
"a.b.c.d", would satisfy most of my curiosity.


> https://imgur.com/fVCuFSm

 

   "Connection refused" would be consistent with your friend talking to
your other router.  (The one with no port forwarding configured.)

 

> Apart from this. I dont know what other info i could give you. [...]

 

   I doubt that we need much more information for a diagnosis.  From
what I can see, you appear to have cascaded two routers, and you're
configuring port forwarding on the one which is not directly accessible
from the outside world.  I'd expect that to fail ("usual problem" "1").

 

   Why do you have the R6700v3?  If the goal was better wireless-network
coverage than you got from your (secret) other router, then you might
want to configure the R6700v3 as a wireless access point, and configure
your port forwarding on your (secret) other router.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Set Up the
Router as a WiFi Access Point".


   Note that the (LAN) IP address of your Minecraft server (hence the
server address in your port-forwarding rule) will be different (probably
on a different subnet, even) when you change the R6700v3 from router
mode to WAP mode.  Otherwise, knowing nothing about your (secret) other
router, I can't tell you much about how to configure port forwarding on
it.

 

   In any case, most likely, you'll want to reserve an address (on your
(secret) other router) for your Minecraft server, so that it always
agrees with your (new) port-forwarding rule.

 

   The alternative to the R6700v3-as-WAP would be to configure your
(secret) other router as a modem-only (or eliminate it, if it's not a
modem+router), and use the R6700v3 as your only router.  (I'd expect
that scheme, too, to give you a different LAN IP subnet.)

   You wish.

 

> [...] I dont have a second router, [...]

 

   What's the IP address of the WAN/Internet interface on the R6700v3?
ADVANCED > ADVANCED Home : Internet Port : Internet IP Address

 

   If that's not your public address (which looks good), then there
pretty much _must_ be another router in there.

 

   It is _possible_ to configure the R6700v3 with a LAN subnet of
"10.0.0.*", but its normal default would be "192.168.1.*".  The usual
way to get "10.0.0.*" on the R6700v3 LAN is to connect the R6700v3 WAN
to some other "192.168.1.x" (such as on another router's ("192.168.1.x")
LAN).

Honestly im super dumb so i dont even know the difference between the router and the modem, all that i know is that my modem cannot do wifi, so thats why we connected my router, but maybe my modem is a router, i just dont know.

   All I know is that, with my weak psychic powers, I can't see any of
your equipment, so I can't guess who made it, or what its model number
might be, or how it's configured.  However we might get a clue if you'd
answer the questions.  Look for "?".   For example:

Okay so i can send you a picture of it. But thats about as much as i can tell you about it since i dont have that much knowledge on it.
