  1. 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


    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
  2. *bump* #3. Updated the OP. all help is appreciated
  3. if you moved into your dorms it's possible your local college network may block your connection
  4. 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...
  5. 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
  6. Ok, I will look into trying that :) While my minecraft is down. I am running a couple Computer Scans.
  7. 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.
  8. Bumpity Bump Bump Bump I am getting a new error message now...

    Connection Lost
    Failed to login: java.net.UnknownHostException: session.minecraft.net
  9. 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.
  10. Well I have been having this problem for a week now... So yeah
  11. Your college blocks minecraft.... but it doesn't block porn... anything else..
    Makes sense!

  12. 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.

  14. I am getting that aswell.
  15. I cant get onto smp9 it keeps saying outdated server

  17. Can you ping the server? If you need help with ping, either google or let me know and I can help.
  18. FYI, you bumped this thread, it was about 2 months old..
  19. 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.
