My friend can't join my Hexxit server.

is your server local means... are you running it from your own system on your own LAN or are you paying a hosting provider to use a server somewhere out there on the internet?

assuming it's local (somewhere on your LAN), you need to access your router and forward 25565 (assuming it's the Minecraft default) to whatever computer is hosting the server (on my setup it's, for example).

(port forwarding can vary quite a bit based on your router -- you might start here: http://www.wikihow.com/Set-Up-Port-Forwarding-on-a-Router)

once that's done, he should put in your external address (should also be listed in your router interface when you check on port forwarding) as the server to which he's trying to connect.
