I rebooted my router and tried the new puplic IP and it seems to be working fine now, just got to set up a static IP then it'll be done.

@camicazz475 : Can you connect to port 25565 from your PC using the private LAN IP of the gaming server?

Yes I can connect to the server from a different system on the same LAN, however only by using the internal Private IP, the public IP wouldn't work (that may be normal, I'm not sure), However I could do that before port forwarding.

Yes, I was just checking that the server was up and running on that port.
