We understand that some of you may be experiencing the “internal exception: java.net.socketexception: connection reset” error while playing Minecraft on the server. This error can be frustrating and prevent you from enjoying your Minecraft experience. However, please note that this error is not a server-side issue, but rather a problem with your computer or internet connection.
To help you resolve this error, we recommend trying the following solutions:
Remove any mods or clients: Minecraft mods and custom clients can sometimes cause conflicts with our server. If you have any mods or custom clients installed, we recommend removing them and trying to connect with a vanilla Minecraft client instead. This will help us rule out any compatibility issues with the server.
Change DNS to Cloudflare: Changing your DNS server to Cloudflare DNS (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11) can sometimes resolve network-related issues. DNS (Domain Name System) is responsible for resolving domain names into IP addresses, which are used to connect to servers. To change your DNS server on Windows 10, follow these steps:
- Open the Control Panel and click on “Network and Internet”.
- Click on “Network and Sharing Center”.
- Click on “Change adapter settings” on the left side of the window.
- Right-click on your active network connection and select “Properties”.
- Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click “Properties”.
- Select “Use the following DNS server addresses” and enter “18.104.22.168” for the preferred DNS server and “22.214.171.124” for the alternate DNS server.
- Click “OK” to save the changes.
Update Java: If you haven’t updated your Java installation recently, please do so. Updating Java to the latest version can sometimes fix issues with Minecraft. To update Java on Windows 10, follow these steps:
- Press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app.
- Click on “Apps”.
- Find “Java” in the list of installed apps and click on it.
- Click “Uninstall” to remove the old version of Java.
- Download and install the latest version of Java from the official website.
Change Minecraft versions: If you’re still experiencing the error, you can try switching to a different Minecraft version. This can sometimes fix compatibility issues with our server. To change Minecraft versions on Windows 10, follow these steps:

- Click on “Installations”.
- Click on “New” to create a new installation.
- Select the Minecraft version you want to use from the dropdown menu.
