when I try and connect to the nexus server it says java.net.connectionexception:connection refused:no further information. does anyone know why this is happening?

  • Could you try to give us some more information? There's not much to go on here. What version of Minecraft are you running, for example?

  • Which Nexus server are you referring to? If it's PhoenixNexus, they're currently blacklisted by Mojang.

There are several ways this issue could have arisen.

  • If your network or computer has any proxies or firewalls, you may want to remove them. If your can't then try using someone else's wifi.
  • If you're using cracked/hacked Minecraft, it just won't work.
  • If someone else has been banned on your IP, it often says that for awhile (until you are banned too.)
  • Your local servers may be down. Wait awhile.
  • The nexus servers may be down. Wait awhile.
  • Re-install Minecraft (do this last)
  • Make sure you're running without mods/shaders/hacks.
  • Make sure you're in the right version.
  • I would highly suggest you take a look at the Markdown Formatting Guide. It will give valuable insights as to how to format your posts correctly, as StackExchange uses Markdown primarily.

  • I write all my posts within those constrains, but this post is the first one from a mobile device, and I am still getting used to the system. @KazWolfe

  • Still, use - instead of the actual bulletpoint character, please. That should work from mobile.

  • Actually, looking through your post history, there have been quite a few posts corrected for the same things. I would highly recommend going back and seeing what edits have been made to your posts. Specifically, please try to avoid the use of <html> markup unless absolutely necessary. Markdown is your friend here.
