Yesterday I reverted my computer back to factory setting and restarted it. Before I did that I was playing on 1.7.2 and it was working fine. Today I redownloaded Minecraft and tried to log in to a server that is updated to 1.7.2 and I got this message.
java.net.Connection refused:no further information: then the server ip

I found a solution which fixed the issue "java.net.Connection refused:no further information: then the server ip" which I was seeing also on any client computers that were trying to connect to a local minecraft server I am running after updating to 1.7.2. If you have access to the server you can try the fix that I outline here:
