So I got this error that says "Failed to login: java.net.UnknownHostException: session.minecraft.net"

What does this have to do with... Java? Router? Firewall?

Anyone know what to do?


Solution:



Register or log in to remove.

before you click the "log in" button hit options then force update > done and hit log in.
it will automatically update the client.

Thanks OP. Also for anyone not wanting to watch 3mins of video here are text instructions:

SOLUTION:

This post is for anyone who is having the same problem as me. What I did to fix my problem:
1. go to this folder: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
2. Open the 'hosts' file in notepad
3. At the bottom copy and paste in


184.73.223.40 session.minecraft.net

4. save file and reboot computer.

It should work
