hi there, so i dont know why it just cant work but im having some trouble in port forwarding. if i check on https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ it says my ports are closed. i have forwarded port 19800 to my ipv4 address 192.168.8.100, i have made an exeption for mxserver in windows firewall, i have added new rule in windows defender firewall advanced security and added port 19800 and also made sure that theres an exeption for mxserver in there, iv also created a static ip and tried that but nothing seems to work, open port check tool says port is closed and anyone outside my network still cant join my mx sim server.

any help would be much apopreciated

Is the UDP forwarded and not TCP port?
To troubleshoot, can you connect via localhost?:
127.0.0.1:19800

Does via LAN work?
192.168.1.100:19800

If this works, is your friends trying to connect to your public ip address?

19800 is port forwarded on udp
yes lan works. my server works fine localy, just when my freind tries to join "using my public ip" it doesnt work.
if i type the command "netstat -a" into command prompt "cmd" it shows there that udp 192.168.8.50 19800 port is being used. i have even disabled my firewall on my pc and on my router, still nothing
