Cannot Connect to Minecraft Multiplayer Server
I am attempting to connect to a multiplayer Minecraft server outside my local network using Minecraft Java Edition 1.13.2. I have the correct address, and others have successfully connected to the server--but I cannot. I have attempted to connect to the server with two computers on my Norton Core network, but neither works. I am only getting "connection timed out" messages, but no other errors.
Are there known issues with trying to connect directly to a Minecraft server while using Norton Core? I have tried to enable port forwarding in the Norton Core app for the default Minecraft port, 25565, and I have checked that the Minecraft Launcher is allowed through the firewall. What else must be done to allow computers within a Norton Core-managed network connect to external game servers?
