This means login verification servers are down, either you started minecraft in offline mode, or you started it online and since then the servers have gone down, expect alot of this during servermigration. Restart your client, re-log, re-type ip and re-connect. if this fails, try again.
the server has refused your connection, you will need to apply to get onto the servers whitelist either via their website or thread.
Texture packs, start minecraft select texturepacks, select "texture pack folder". place downloaded texture pack into there, select it and go.
If this does not work you will need the HD texturepack patcher. found in the Texturepack sub-forum.
Thanks to everyones advice, i finannly joined a server, now the only problems i have is with i server i have had problems with, and internal errors, but what is the whitelist and how can i get on it
Sorry to be asking so much
Servers have to "lists"
A Blacklist -A list of banned people
and a whitelist- When enabled only people on this list can enter
Normally U must find the forum thread and read the instructions normally you either sign up on their site, message someone or just reply to the thread.
