Unable to Connect to Server, Connection Refused - site down?

Postby LZappa » December 20th, 2020, 2:47 pm

Hello,

My friend Dan and I were in the middle of a turn of Normandy '44 when the connection was lost. Both of us have internet connectivity, so it's not our service. Neither of us can reconnect and we get the message I used in the subject line of this message. Is the VASSAL server down? If so, is there an expected time when it will be back up? Thanks!

Regards,
Leo Zappa

The game server was down briefly earlier today. It should be up again
now.

Hi!

Same problem here.

I've read that turning off the firewall should work, but I'm still unable to connect to server.

What shall I do?

Our server hasn't been down today. You're likely having some other sort of connectivity issue.

So are there any usual suspects in terms of connectivity (besides internet access of course)? I tried connecting from a Mac, which is not mine, and it worked, so the problem must be my own laptop. What can I do to fix this issue?

Btw, happy new year!

It seems to be a problem with Java I guess:

No, not on the basis of the errorLog you posted.

Though this looks like an error, it's not. This happens on Windows a good chunk of the time when you close a socket but the listener doesn't receive the final "close" message before the socket is entirely shut down. From 3.5.0, you won't see this message any more. Additionally, this message is unrelated to communication with our server---the socket in question is one that the Module Manager uses to communicate with any Players or Editors you have open.

I would check for any local firewalls or anti-virus programs blocking traffic. You might also try running VASSAL as Administrator to see if that makes a difference---if so, then it's some sort of account permissions problem that you're having.

Thanks for your reply and explanation.

Unfortunately I've already switched off my every single firewall and anti-virus but I'm still unable to play. Neither running VASSAL as administrator worked I'm affraid.

It's so frustrating. I've never had any issues with VASSAl using my good old PC, but it seems that my new laptop, which is so much better than its predecessor, has certain configuration that doesn't work well with VASSAL.

If there isn't any other possible solution to this problem, I'll eagerly look forward to 3.5.0. I hope it is released soon :D
