Cannot connect to my own hosted servers.

Hello. I recently changed from virgin media to bt infinity and have a problem. Whenever i host a garrysmod server, or minecraft etc, i cannot connect to it by typing in my external ip, but my friends who are not connected to my network can. I have tried all the settings on the hub including removing firewall, anti virus, dmz mode, etc. I have fully port forwarded as my friends can join. I never used to have this problem and it is very annoying as my friends can play on my game servers but i cannot.

 

Any help would be appreciated. thanks

 

ps, bt home hub 3

Re: Cannot connect to my own hosted servers.

If you are trying to join a server running on the same PC

You use the network card loopback address of 127.0.0.1 or localhost to join.
