I will keep it nice and short. My friend (A) is hosting a Minecraft server off his computer. Let his ip be xxx.xxx.x.x. My two other friends (B and C) are able to connect to this minecraft server using this ip. I try to use the IP, and I recieve a timeout notification. I then, with very limited knowledge, run cmd and ping xxx.xxx.x.x 4 timeout notices and I recieved 0% of the packets back. I then run a tracart with these results;
Tracing route to xxx.xxx.x.x over a maximum of 30 hops

(yyy.yyy.yy and the lot are just blocked out ips, I'm not tech savy so I was unsure wether I should, tell me if you need them)
What happened? Myself and my brother suspect that either my ISP or his ISP is refusing to connect to the others ip. Yesterday whilst I played on his server, he was DDosed. After that, I was unable to connect to or sucsessfuly ping his ip.
Help me! Im not very tech savvy, so please be gentle :<
