    First off - this has nothing to do with minecraft.net being down. This is Client side. I got no responses after several days of me posting this- so I am redoing it...

    Intro: I recently moved into my dorms for college - ever since I have been unable to connect to ANY minecraft servers (I only play on EMC, but I tried others).

    This screenshot shows the server status of my home server smp4.

    But when I try to connect - I get this

    or

    I have exhausted every piece of troubleshooting ideas I have.

    Any and all help is appreciated - need me to provide more information, reply please. This has been a several day old problem

    if you moved into your dorms it's possible your local college network may block your connection
  4. chickeneer Senior Staff

    That is what I am worried about... It doesn't block anything else on the internet though

    Edit: i am trying one more thing- but I won't have the results for a few hours...

    you can try setting up a proxy. you can easily find out if it's your college's network by doing one of these two things:

    1) ask another dorm-mate if he/she can connect
    2) go find a local free wireless and connect to that and try it

    Ok, I will look into trying that :) While my minecraft is down. I am running a couple Computer Scans.

    hmm, well I am having issues still; I have actually been able to get on a couple times but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to it... I also posted in the Minecraft Forums, No responses there yet.

    sgx2000's post may be helpful; but I don't know how to use this information lol... Yeah.

    here is the link to the other thread I created.

    I am not sure what is wrong but I have a problem to. Whenever I log in to a server the mc window freezes and then 5 minutes later I log in.

    lol, I wouldn't know; but I have not ran into any problems except Minecraft... I might just be the first student to run into the problem to have it unblocked or something.

    Can you ping the server? If you need help with ping, either google or let me know and I can help.

    FYI, you bumped this thread, it was about 2 months old..
  20. chickeneer Senior Staff

    Closing this thread: it is old news now. It just has to do with the limited bandwidth of my college's Wi-Fi. Nothing more to discuss.
