Hosting Server Can't get friends to join server

I'm trying to host a server but my for some reason none of my friends are able to join. I am able to join the server from my other computer on the same network using my internal IP, but whenever someone outside of the network tries to join using the external IP they can't connect. I've port forwarded and disabled the firewall on my host computer as well, so I don't think that is the issue. Anyone know what could be going wrong?

Sounds like you didn't actually set up port forwarding correctly. Post screenshots of PW settings.

Also, ask your friend to do this:
Start => Run => type:
Code:
cmd
=> Enter => type:
Code:
tracert YOUR_EXTERNAL_IP
And then:
Code:
ping YOUR_EXTERNAL_IP
Post a screenshot to this thread.
You can see an example of such screenshot below.
