How do I Portforward a Minecraft Server with a Optimum Internet Provider?

So I have a NetGear Router, but with an Optimum Internet Provider. I have been trying to Port-Forward a Minecraft Server but it never works. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but when I go on http://www.whatismyip.com/ and put my ip in the Minecraft Server Properties, it always says **Failed To Bine Port**. It's getting really annoying and I am not able to get a host for my server. Anyone help. :(

  1. Try using your local IP address. If that doesn't work, then it's your server settings. If it does work, then it is probably a firewall issue.
