"Failed to bind to port" means something's running that's using that port. Check to make sure you don't have the server already running.

If you don't understand port forwarding, you probably haven't realized your IP changed. It isn't a set IP forever, it changes occasionally. My router allows me to select my computer and it automatically puts in the IP for it, and I just type in the port number I want to open. It's not difficult if your can figure out your router.
