Port forwarding/ opening bright box 2

I have been trying to port forward on port 25565, i have followed every tutorial and every guide I have been able to find and I am unable to get the port to open, I have checked with several port checkers and they all keep showing the port as closed. 


I have double and triple checked the settings are correct but to no avail, advice please?

Re: Port forwarding/ opening bright box 2

Have you reserved the IP of the service you are trying to port forward in the DHCP?


Is the service up & running? What is it exactly?


Please supply the Port Forward settings you have used?
