what am i doing wrong
First, I would disable the firewall on the PVE side to see if the open port in your router is correct. If it's then you can re-enable the firewall on the PVE.
Otherwise, make sure that the 12345 port on PVE is open `nc -zv 12345` and keep in mind that the Proxmox VE HTTPS uses 8006 port instead if you are using reverse proxy.
I suggest changing to a valid private IP too, since is not something you should assign in a local network.
