Question Port forwarding for a Server

Another one of these.
I'm trying to attempt to set up a Minecraft server and hit a roadbump. I have a linksys router and set up the the external port and internal port to be 25565 and the protocol to be both TCP and UDP. I also created an Inbound Rule in the Windows Firewall allowing port 25565 to be able to connect. However when using ipfingerprints, it says "25565/tcp filtered minecraft".
Would love any suggestions or ideas on why this is occurring.

Which model Linksys router do you have? The router's User Guide/Manual should have the necessary port -forwarding instructions.

There are also a number of online "How-to's" with respect to setting up a Minecraft server. Some are good - other's not so much.

Find a "how-to" that matches your router and then walk through the screens planning the configuration. E.g., establishing a static IP for the host computer.

I have the AC1900 and I already have the port forward set up in the "Apps and Gaming" tab in Security. In my internet settings, I found the Static IP option, but it is currently on the "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" option. Do I have to change it to the Static IP to make this work? Also, where do I get the information to put in the boxes (Internet IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS) for the Static IP?
