port forwarded in firewall and router plus turned on upnp and I cant see it on the list to have my friends join I dont get it

Question

I port forwarded in firewall and router plus turned on upnp and I cant see it on the list to have my friends join I dont get it . What am i doing wrong i thought with upnp on it would work automatically plus all ports are forwarded . I even turned the ports off  to see if upnp does it on its own I still dont see it I dont even see It In LAN  the only way i see it after that is when I put in my ip address but not the global ip it dont show.

Can you connect to it and get all the way into the server?

Did you add all the ports?

Are you sure you are port forwarding correctly?

Have you tested to see if the port is actually open?

Yes i can connect and yes i forwarded right even on my router when upnp is on i can see the ports are running but the check thing i tried online and the only port that was ever on was 80 and not even the mysql 3306 showed on the websites i never tried that program to check ports

Download and run the port checker. If you are able to connect to the server yourself that means it isn't a coding error. However you could still not have the ports open for your local machine. Have you made sure you have the ports linked to the correct IPv4 Address?

No it's not. When you open the link click on Network Utilities Bundle, which takes you to the link below.

It'll download the setup, once it's done open it and click trial bottom left of the window. You never have to pay for anything and you can use it as long as you want. I've been using it for years.
