New to storj need help with node status offline

I just finished up the gui for storj and followed the procedures for installing the node. On the gui it is saying that my node status is offline. I check out
and it is saying that my port is closed. Did I miss something?? If so, what? Please help this noob out.

Thank you

did you entered your external ip:port during installation, typicly only IP is entered. Also port forwarding.
You DDNS using?

Please, use this checklist:

For Windows GUI your configuration parameters are stored in the configuration file "%ProgramFiles%\Storj\Storage Node\config.yaml", please, use the Notepad++ to modify it, do not use the usual Notepad.
After any modifications you need to explicitly save the configuration file and restart the storagenode service either from the Services applet or from the elevated powershell:

Restart-Service storagenode
