Yes I have tried both of those reference links. No errors it just says filtered.

EDIT: The router says the IP is 10.x.x.x.x which is a private IP, is there a way to fix that?
 
So now you have a public IP ?

You checked that the IP you see in the router is the same as on things like whatsmyip.

Try using the DMZ option instead just to test. It tends to be simpler to setup. Some routers port forwarding rules are very confusing.

Make sure the program is actually running on that port. If nothing is active there will be no software to respond.
Temporarily turn the firewall off in the pc.

DMZ is not really a long term solution. It means you just have to work harder to get the correct port forwarding rules. When you run DMZ it opens ALL ports toward you machine. If there are any bugs in the OS the hackers now have direct access to try attacking it. With port forwarding they would have to find a bug in the application you are running which is much less likely.
