If they can't connect then that's a problem with your ISP or router, nothing to do with terraria.

You are giving your friends your external IP and not your internal network IP, correct?

Had to check. Occam's Razor and such... :laugh:

Does the game server have a config file that specifies which port it's listening on? You should make sure that your router is forwarding the same port number. Do you have another computer handy? Are you able to join your server using another computer on the same network?

If you've enabled port forwarding and it's still not working, could be

1) Invalid port forwarding (wrong destination IP or wrong ports used, try DMZ)

2) Terraria uses more then the listed ports

3) your ISP is blocking connections

4) you have a firewall blocking connections

Just download something like Hamachi , create a vpn and host the server that way.

What is the external IP that your router sees ? just to make sure you aren't being double NATed and your modem acts as a router as well, giving out internal IP's

Is the IP you are giving them from CMD or the IP that you can get from ipchicken.com. If it is from Command Prompt then that won't work you need to give them the ip from ipchicken.com.
