Hi! I'm trying to port forward on my netgear router, mainly for a minecraft server but probably for a couple of other things as well. I've set my static ip in LAN setup and i set my computer's IP in port forwarding settings with the ip address 25565 for every option. However, not only will the server not start but every online open port check tool tells me it isn't open as well. What could be wrong? Thank you.

Without the server listening, all port testers will show the port as not open.
