4. Connecting to the server
If you get a message like:
- Connection refused: connect
- Socket not connected: connect
- Server not responding.
and you are sure the lobby is not shutdown or jammed (because this could cause the same message) then:
- Your anti virus software blocks traffic between you and the server, or
- You are behind a firewall or router that blocks the required network ports.
In both cases (if you have access to it) the solution is opening the following ports for outgoing traffic:
Some public computers (libabry, university, at work) are not able to connect to a server on anything else then port 80 (standard port). Usually you won't be able to change that.

Client/Server version mismatch
The Xplorers server has a newer version than your applet. Normally, when you restart your browser
or your pc the newest version is automatically downloaded.
If this is not the case, you can try clearing your internet cache/temp internet files and Clearing Java cache.
Java 8 - AccessControlException/SocketPermission
Due to new security 'enhancements', Java 8 is no longer able to connect to our servers in sandboxed mode. On the play (lobby launch) page, select launch option 'full-persmissions'.
