    I am trying to port forward my router for my friends to join my multiplayer server, but it isn't working. I created a static IP through my Fios router's website, and I checked to make sure my port was forwarded with the program "Port Forward Network Utilities" (which said that my port was successfully forwarded). Still, nobody is able to join my server. I am 90% sure this isn't a problem with the game, so I posted this to a big boy forum to solve it.

    I am currently running on Windows 8 (Windows 10 doesn't want to work on my PC)

    Did you also allow the port and game server through your Windows firewall?
