    I'm not sure if you have the same issue.

    I ran into this problem myself. It was my ISP that didn't allow port 80, which is needed to be forwarded in the router to the Internal IP. Not all ISP's block this port but mine was one that does. I'd have to change my service to be able to forward port 80.

    You can change the port MC server uses, from memory.

    OP, expand more. Are you handing out your external IP? Did you forward the port on your router to your server?
