I have a triangle.gs free server, I logged on then after a little it says

error report: Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

the console doesn't say anything not even (my username) left the game.

Version of server: 1.7.10

Mods: none its all vanilla

I've tried restarting the server but the same error keeps happening {ever time it crashes it puts the server offline so i start it try again but same error}


This is team Triangle! When this was posted, we were having a partial service outage because of upgrades. Our physical machines filled up and our data centre was helping us deploy new ones.

Apologies for the downtime, you'll be good to go back on now :·)

'Remote Host' means that it's triangle.gs's fault. It means whatever hosting your server was shut down.

All I can suggest is to contact their Customer Support service or wait until they get your server back up on a different machine.

Because triangle.gs is a free hosting service, you may want to either use a paid hosting service or host your server locally. Free hosting services are usually unreliable and only offer temporary servers, so going with one of those options are your best bet.

  • I have a second one with them for something else and it always works – Kingbluesapphire Oct 11 '14 at 20:14
  • It may also be that there is a limited amount of servers, so that your server was shut down to make room for another server. All in all, I'd just try a different service or use a paid one. – somecooldude12 Oct 11 '14 at 20:17
