If the pc that the Minecraft server is on is linked by way of a router to the Internet modem, which it ought to be for security reasons, then you'll have to ensure the router is correctly port forwarding Minecraft Internet site visitors to the computer that has the Minecraft server on it (even in the event you only have the one pc).
Port forwarding is one thing your router does in order that it sends the correct type of visitors to the suitable computer. Minecraft makes use of port 25565, so the router needs to be setup to send any site visitors on port 25565 to the computer that has the Minecraft server.

Each time a pc is related to your router, or turned on, the router assigns it a local IP tackle. It often stays the same but can typically change. So you might need to update the settings for those who were to disconnect the pc from the router or shut it down. In the event you run Minecraft server a lot and shut down your laptop often, chances are you'll need to look into giving your computers static native IP addresses.
Once you've got forwarded port 25565 to the right pc, you'll be able to check it at www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports. You'll want to test for port 25565 (80 is the default port for web site site visitors). For additional troubleshooting, see the Minecraft server install wiki.
Remember that each your exterior and native IP addresses might change whenever you shut down your computer or reset your modem. Each time you begin your server, be sure you double-verify your inside and exterior IP address, and update settings accordingly.
