Vassal won't start - socket error after Java update

Postby GrumpyOldMan » September 7th, 2018, 1:59 am

Hi

I updated to Java 18181 and now Vassal won't start. I searched the forum and saw that it could be AV or firewall stopping socket connection so I (nervously) turned off all my security gear but it still wouldn't run.

Error Log:-

Hello All

It seems my problem was an overzealous firewall that still blocked Java even when the firewall was set to sleep. Gave it a stern talking to, sent it to the Spanish Inquisition and everything works now.

Cheers
