[SOLVED] Difficulty With Minecraft Server

This is yet another "cant set up a Minecraft server" post ... I hope someone can assist me. The short version is that the server runs on my computer, but not his.

Our computers are connected via ethernet cable directly to the ASUS RT–AC86U router. His IP address for local use is

The port forwarding settings are:

Service Name Minecraft Source IP: (blank) Port Range Local IP: Local Port: 25565 TCP: BOTH

When he plays Minecraft on his personal computer and connects directly to the connection is established. However when he enters the external IP (obtained from the "Network Map" page of the router's settings), it yields the following error message:

Failed to connect to the server io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information

I get the same error in Minecraft when I attempt to connect to from my personal computer.

Here's the best part: Everything works when I run the server on my personal computer ( and modify the Local IP port forward settings according to my needs. I can connect to the Minecraft server using either my local IP, or an external IP.

Sorry, no listings were found.
