Is the server that you have created behind some NAT, etc?
If you are using an IP of the form 10.x.x.x or 172.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x then these are private IPv4 address spaces and not public IPs(which is unique), and you wont be able access them from outside.
You need to change the IPv4 settings in the local area connection properties. You need to out out your public IP and the DNS of your ISP. For this you may even contact your ISP to guide you through there settings.
hope this helps
