I've been trying to host a Minecraft server for some time now. I'm practically a complete beginner with Linux thus far, so you may have to explain things to me a bit. I was able to host servers on Windows in the past with relative ease. I'm hosting the server locally through a wireless router.
Through Google, I've done things involving uninstalling OpenJDK and installing Oracle's Java, doing something involving iptables, stopping the ufw service, updating LWJGL, and downloading Firewall software. Nothing has worked yet. I have 25565 forwarded. Neither me nor a friend are able to join via external IP, though I can connect through localhost. It says I'm connecting for some time, then gives me an error:

My friend doesn't get this error however, and instead gets a timeout message, so that's likely something on my end.
If there's any more information you need, I'll gladly supply it if I can.
