I'm trying to connect to a server that is used by a few of my friends. The server runs off FTB Direwolf. When I try to connect to the server (using an external IP address), the response from my computer says:

Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine

I have tried looking at my firewall settings, reinstalled Minecraft, and made sure everything I have is up to date. Any suggestions on how to fix this error?

  • Can you locate the error log where you see this message? There might be some information in there that will shed some light on the situation. – MBraedley Mar 19 '14 at 18:02

It's nothing to do with the computer it's something to do with the specific server

    Are you able to edit your answer to expand on this? How can one fix it if they do have access to the server? – Tim Malone Aug 7 '16 at 11:21

Restart the server, java exceptions are when the game uses too much memory and it crashes the server

    IOExceptions are caused by other things than using too much memory. That's exactly what OutOfMemoryExceptions are for. – Frank Feb 8 '14 at 23:53
