I'm getting random disconnects from the server I play on, with the following message: IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host
Client is 1.7.2, server too. I can connect just fine, and everything seems smooth until I suddenly get disconnected. It happens irregularly, but most of the time I can play for about 20-30 minutes in between disconnects. Sometimes I've lost items upon reconnecting.
I've been having random disconnects since a few weeks before the update, with the 1.6.4 client, but I think it gave me a different error message, which I can't remember. The above message has been appearing since 1.7.2.
My Java is up to date, I'm on Windows 7 (64bit) with an otherwise very stable 100mbit connection.
I've looked elsewhere and on these forums, but the only threads mentioning this error message are about outdated clients not being able to connect at all.
This is a common problem with big servers. you just need to wait for mojang to sort out the networking.

I do redstone, pvp, light map making, enjoy sweet tea, and I'm a Leo.
If I helped, Up-vote my post please. Quote me if you require my attention.
Thanks, but apparently other people on the server aren't affected by it, so I assumed something's wrong on my side. Maybe your answer still applies, but I was hoping someone could give me more than "fingers crossed and hope it goes away soon", hehe.
That is because either the server it's self abort the connection (unlikely) or the server you are trying to play on has not been updated to 1.7.2.
The other users may be playing on an older version.
The server has definitely been updated to 1.7.2, and I can connect just fine.
More information: when I reconnect, I can still see chat messages etc. from before the disconnect happens, I actually see "Determiner has left the game" in the chat box, but no "Determiner has joined" the game. The player overview doesn't list me either, until it updates after a short while. Then it's another 20 or so minutes before it happens again. One other player on the server, from the same region as I, had the same problem, but it actually happened every other minute to him for about a day.
Once, I actually saw my avatar still standing there, and I was able to kill myself. Which is funny, but shouldn't happen, especially since it meant I got a copy of every item I was carrying at the time.
I will check if the server is a BungeeCord server, thanks for mentioning that MechaAdster.
That's happening to me too, except it disconnects me within a few seconds. The server I'm trying to go on has been getting DDoSed, but it happened last night and it hadn't disconnected me THAT often. It's really irritating, but others seem to be staying on it just fine.
I ave thsi problem too. I play on WoodyCraft and it only happens when I am connected to a router and my dad's place. When at my mum's place it never happens to me so maybe it is something to do with your internet connection/router.
Well, since Bukkit hasn't updated to 1.7.2 fully yet, people have been using this off-brand piece of sh-- work that has a lot more kinks than bukkit, but people don't realize it. IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host is caused by coding errors in it's registry. In simple terms, it thinks that you are still logged in when you aren't. This error will most likely occur in Hub servers, or a central server with multiple other servers connected to it, and this is because of 2 reasons... A.) there is more room for more registry errors, B.) From what I have seen, Hub servers are generally buggy all-together! You are going to have to wait until Bukkit 1.7.2 is fully released if you want a full experience on a server.
Also, if you aren't crashing on a server with that error, then it is probably using the testing version of Bukkit 1.7.2, because the owners are smart.
I have the newest server (1.7.2) running on a windows 7 machine on a public ip, where I enabled passthrough on the router so that my family can connect to it. Not just the ones living with me, but elsewhere as well. It was working "perfectly" up until 1.7.2. I updated the server executiable on the server, and have double/triple checked it is using the latest. I have it adjusted to use 2gb of RAM, but have tried it with default, 512, 1gb, and still experience this issue.
We get this exact same disconnect, always after about 20-30 minutes of playing. All of us get it at at the same time. More than a little frustrating when I just shelled out the money for the license for everyone in the last 60 days (so over $100), and then it started doing this....
At the most, 4 people are connected at a time. We aren't exactly overtaxing this thing.
We spend hours playing in the evening. And all of us, every 20-30 minutes, get disconnected. Wait about 10 seconds and can reconnect with no problem.
Have lost ALOT of items due to this. Finally enabled creative mode even though we were stubbornly refusing just because of how many times the game has screwed us over with this.
Would love any suggestion of something to try, unless this is truly just a bug and we are waiting for a patch.
I'm having a lot of trouble connecting to the big hub servers and getting this error. I recently reset my router and nothing really changed. We do have a lot of devices connected to the internet, maybe that is the reason? I just really want to get onto the Crewniverse server since I just put in money for a rank and barely got to play. Tried connecting to other big servers and I got the same error, so I'm not sure what to do?
I also noticed yesterday, the day I was disconnected and haven't been able to get on since, I was AFK for long periods of time. Maybe it has something to do with it? Please if anyone knows how to fix this reply ASAP.
I'm having this problem. I have "extended" internet now, and it happened every since we got our extended internet. I have to use wired connection [microsoft windows update broke my wireless card], and so I can't switch...
Do you have another computer on your network that is capable of playing the game?
My brother computer gets it like once every 2-3 days, I get it like 5-20 minutes.
I would like to play on my computer, (mine gaming, his not).
I think it's a problem on my end, everything disconnects for a split second, every since we got an extended internet.
I'm trying to get my parents to change the extended internet, but I need wired connection (because of microsoft...)
