My friend attempted to join my server, on the server console it clearly says he has connected.
On his end the screen goes black after saying "This is how you died" and stays like that.
The attatched file is his error log.
(I had all firewalls and anti-virus off, and ports forwarded correctly.)

Delay processing packet of type 57 while loading gameDelay processing packet of type 64 while loading gameDelay processing packet of type 19 while loading gametimeout downloading zip, I'll keep waiting forever

So these aren't errors?  We'll try disabling all his firewalls/antivirus and try again.

Thanks for the quick reply!

You could try starting the server with an additional argument to get more info:

-debuglog=Network,NetworkFileDebug

And in case you didn't, the server ports need to be open for both TCP and UDP

After using the -debuglog turns out the problem was ports. Rather I realised it was a port problem.
I did have 16261 opened with TCP and UDP but I didn't have any additional ports. I misunderstood and thought I only needed extra ports for lots of people.

For those having the same problem Make sure you open extra ports (16262 and up) for each person on the server
Still connect to 16261 though.

Thanks for your help EasyPickins!
