Hello everyone :)  I'm trying to run a Minecraft Server on my computer, and neither my friends or I am able to join it. I have attempted port-forwarding and using Hamachi, but neither work and I'm not sure what the issue could be. I have also applied DMZ to my computer's local IP. I'll provide screenshots of everything I've done to see if you guys an troubleshoot my issue. Thank you!

I would like to note a few things -

- I can join the server using my local IP

- I am using a legitimate copy of the game

- I am providing the friends attempting to join the IP given from whatismyip.com and Hamachi respectively (whether I'm running it or not)

- WOW is my Internet Service Provider, and my router is the Arris TG862G

If you need any more information let me know! Thanks again.

Did you modify the server.properties file and enter the IP provided to you from Hamachi?

I see in your picture that field is blank, grab the IPv4 address provided by Hamachi, and enter it in the server IP config section. That will also be the IP you and your friend use to Add Server in the Minecraft multiplayer options.

Yes I did try that without any success. :(

And you entered it in without anything surrounding it? Ala server-ip=11.11.11.111

Yeah, no spaces or anything. Copied and pasted right from Hamachi

i have set up a minecraft server to run on the net many times, and ever since i got it right once i havent gone wrong.
i have no experience with hamachi, so here is a port forwarding solution
make sure port 25565 is open on windows firewall and any antivirus you have.
make sure the port is open on router (no need for DMZ, quite a lot of risks) and that it is forwarded to your ip address
make sure your ip address on local network is static.
^^ that should get everything working, use www.canyouseeme.org to ping that port
