    i have then type in the ip and it does not work.
    they say its just stuck on the connecting... screen
    the only way i can log on is to type in the ip 127.0.0.1
    also i have port forwarded it on my router and disabled my firewall...

    That's usual.

    What can you see on TShock console (command prompt) when your friend has tried to connect?
    (e.g. "xx.xx.xx.xx:xx is connecting to slot XX...")
    If nothing is displayed, I think you still have failed to configure port forwarding.
    There might be another program running at port 80 --- Isn't it your router?
