    Fixing Failed to connect to the server java.net.SocketException: Permission denied

    Just to let you all know:

    If you're getting the problem where connecting to a server gives you the error message
    "Failed to connect to the server java.net.SocketException: Permission denied: connect"

    Just re-download the client from minecraft.net and it should fix the problem for you.

    Noticed this with a few people so far, so thought I'd post it here in case anyone else gets this

    That error is due to incompatible addons. Remove all your addons and re-add them one-by-one.

    If its an MPUK server, you will have Hey0s mod installed. You need to stop and start the server to update the mod, and it should then work ok.

    There is another strange way you can get this error.. If you copy/paste the Server IP rather than typing it in.

    Copy/Paste IP Address = Sometimes it fails, haven't worked out why.
    Type in IP Address = Works everytime (so long as the server is up).

    That can be due to additional characters being copied. If you accidentally put a space infront or behind the ip it will break.

    if you get this error message when logging into a server and you don't have any out of date mods + your news screen loads fine, it is most likely a firewall issue. you either need to disable your fire wall or allow java through it
