Lost connection to server
Nothing of interest in the errorlog.
There’s something badly wrong with the game server, I think. A lot of
TCP connections get stuck in the CLOSE_WAIT state, which I believe means
that the connections aren’t being closed properly from the server end.
Maybe I have to open a certain port in my firewall?
I think it’s very likely that your firewall is blocking VASSAL. I have
no problem connecting to the server right now.
What OS are you using? If you’re running Windows, it’s possible that
Windows Firewall (which is under “Windows Security Center”, I think)
is blocking VASSAL. If you’re running Linux, I can also offer some

server now. It should be good for another 12 or 13 hours now.
For OS, I’m using Windows Vista 32 bit and after reading that it might be Windows’ firewall, I went over to make it an allowed program through both my Windows Firewall and my other firewall. It could be because of my router firewall, but unfortunately, I don’t have access to such things.
I did try just now and to no avail. Same error popped up.
