I was just wondering I made this small server in Java, Iam able to connect to myself as local host, but as many of you may know you cant really host behind a router, is there anyway for me to bypass the router or something So I can have my friend connect to my server. TY

Yeah, port forwarding. Just go into your router settings then forward all traffic on the port that your server is running on to the IP address where the server is located. Then BAM! the door is open and traffic is flowing.
