Minecraft not able to connect to LAN server game. Error "Failed to connect to the server java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information"
Posted on 2015-02-06
Running Minecraft 1.8.1, trying to have a LAN game.
The client can see the server listed when selecting Multiplayer from within the game menu, but when trying to connect it tries to connect (with message "Connecting to server..." for about 30 seconds then times out with the error:
Failed to connect to the server
Java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information:
This did work previously, but stopped working soon (or maybe immediately?) after upgrading the launcher on the PC running the server to a non-java version. Not 100% sure if the problem is related.
Can anyone help me fix this? Thanks
