Hello. When I log into Minecraft it says that there is an "error connecting to servers". When I see the error log, it says:

You don't appear to be connected to the internet. Check your firewall –  badp Dec 3 '12 at 9:46
write that as answer so we can vote you –  iMAGEbox Oct 1 '13 at 8:34
@iMAGEbox That was a guess, and a request that the asker gathers more information. It's not an answer. (It's kind of silly hearing you try to repeat my advice to you to an administrator who knows what they're doing. Just take care of your own comments and answers, please.) –  SevenSidedDie Oct 1 '13 at 14:18

Connection reset errors generally means that a firewall is blocking Magic Launcher from connecting to the internet. Either disable your firewall, or allow Magic Launcher through.
