How Can You Fix The “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” Error in Minecraft?

You can try one of four things to fix the “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” Minecraft error:

  1. Reduce your render distance in the game
  2. Uninstall Hamachi
  3. Use a VPN

We’ll start with the simplest solution and move on to more complicated fixes.

The idea is that many things could cause the “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” error in Minecraft.

Most users report that all these four solutions have fixed the error.

We’ll start with:

  • Reduce your render distance in the game
Reduce your render distance in the game
Reduce your render distance in the game

Is Minecraft laggy for you? Do you have FPS drops from time to time?

Well, this is what could cause the error.

To fix it, try reducing your render distance in the game and settings the graphics to “Fast” or reducing your simulation distance.

All these things should help you run the game smoother and prevent the “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” error from appearing.

The more you lower your graphics, the better the game will run, and the less likely the error will appear.

However, if this doesn’t cause the error, the solution won’t work.

Move to other solutions!

  • Uninstall Hamachi

Some users report that Hamachi is causing the error in Minecraft.

Hamachi is used to play Minecraft multiplayer and create/join servers with other people.

Uninstalling Hamachi can fix the problem.

To uninstall Hamachi, go to Control Panel and find Hamachi.

Then, uninstall it by following the on-screen instructions in the Control Panel.

After uninstalling Hamachi, try running Minecraft again and see if the error pops up again.

Of course, you should reinstall Hamachi again and join a Minecraft server.

If this solution doesn’t work, try others!

  • Use a VPN

This is perhaps one of the best solutions to fix the “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” error on Minecraft.

There’s no need for a premium VPN. A free one will do the job just right.

We recommend ProtonVPN for its ease of use and performance, even on the free variant.

Download ProtonVPN from the official website first.

Then, install it.

After you install it, open it. You’ll be requested for your credentials.

So, you’ll need to create an account to use ProtonVPN.

After you create your account, enter your credentials in the app and tap on “Login.”

This will give you full access to the VPN but only with the free features.

To connect to a VPN server, click on “Quick Connect.”

The VPN will connect you to the fastest server available at the moment.

It doesn’t matter what server you connect to either way. The Minecraft error should disappear after you do this.

With the VPN on, try joining a Minecraft server and see if the error still appears.

It’ll be gone because you’ve just changed your IP address and how Hamachi looks at you.

If this doesn’t work, then nothing will.

Conclusion

This error is widely known throughout the Minecraft community. Even Microsoft is aware of it.

However, a patch hasn’t been released yet. All you can do is try these three solutions to fix the error.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a single solution that solves the “internal exception java.net.socketexception connection reset” error on Minecraft.

For some people, the VPN might do the trick, but it might not work for you.
