    Again, ISP has nothing to do with it.  Your ISP can't block you from playing a game locally for starters. The guy can't even run the server lol
    Your router also has nothing to do with it. You don't even need to be connected to the internet to run your server locally (ie. on your computer offline).

    First figure out why you can't run locally. I'd check for any apps you might have running that could be interferring. Check your firewall too, try turning it off.
    Strange. The topic title says he can run it on localhost.
    The OP also said that it works fine, running locally.
    The OP also said that they cannot get it to work when using their external IP, not locally.


    But since you seem to be a master at this, I'll let you take over.

    Screw what the title says you can't bind to an external IP to start with. 
    Can the OP run the source normally on his computer for him to play? Regardless if the server goes online?

    Yes, I can run the server normally on localhost and connect to it fine. I can even use my external ip in the client to connect to the server and its fine. My main issue is that I can host the server publicly on my friend's computer, because it allows me to set his external ip as the server ip. I port forward at his place, and I can connect from my house. If I try hosting at my house, I cant set my external ip as the server IP, not on my laptop OR my desktop. Therefore it's a router issue and I guess I'll have to suck it up and host at my friend's place unless someone knows what the hell a router could do to cause this.

    Huh.. What's this?
    Okay then it is a router problem.
    Maybe you should have listened to me when I said the router cannot port forward?
    There's a reason I said he needs to call his ISP.

    Yes it's a router problem, but it's not a portforwarding problem. I have port forwarded for another game server I run and it's just fine for it. It's a hosting problem. I'm not sure what to call my ISP about because other things work...

    Call them and explain your problem. (Minus anything with "RSPS" or rsps related. Just say "A java application")
    Say you are having a problem opening a specific port on the router.
    Ask if there's firewalls, etc that could be preventing the port from opening.
    Ask if there is a way they could do it, or if it's even possible.

    Actually I think you're right. I used a port checking tool and none of the ports I have opened are open. I will call tomorrow and give you guys an update.

    @sk8rdude461
    I just misread, my mistake.

    You can use uTorrent to open ports with :|
    People might not prefer it, however it could work lol
    People have a problem using uTorrent - explained later.

    First off, if you want to use it, you need to make sure "uPnP" is enabled on your router (Last I saw, your router has an option to enable it @Demogorgon).
    Second, you want to have the program installed.

    Now, this is how I used to get uTorrent to work with my RSPS, I don't think much has changed..
    1: Open uTorrent, go into Options > Preferences > Connection
    2: Make sure "Randomize port each start" is unticked, and "Enable uPnP port mapping" is enabled, along with "Add Windows Firewall Exception"
    3: Run the RSPS.
    4: go back into the preferences, and set the port to 43594.
    5: Restart your RSPS.

    If you get an error saying the port is in use, you need to change uTorrent off 43594, and repeat steps 3-5.

    Again: This is what I did like 2-3 ish years ago to handle it, if shit has changed, I'm sorry.


    The problem people used to have, was due to either not having uPnP support on their router, or due to them attempting to run the rsps while uTorrent was on the port (See steps 3-5).
