Minion is unable to connect to the internet

I last tried Minion when it was version 1.3
I have the same exact issue as last time. I start Minion, it says it can't connect, I click okay, Minion closes.
I've tried both 32 and 64 bit versions. I currently have the 32 bit version installed. I have no active antivirus and my firewall is disabled.

I have seen the post about changing my browser's proxy settings, which I did, but that didn't work. I also remember seeing a post months ago about issues with Bigfoot Networks killer wireless-n 1103 so maybe it's just impossible for me to use with this network adapter.

Any ideas on how I could get Minion past the EULA??

Hi Son_Raizen,

Open your minion.xml in a text editor and find the first <client> tag.

Directly below that paste the following...
Code:
<skip-network-check />
So that it looks like this...
Code:
<client>
        <skip-network-check />
        <concurrent-updates>2</concurrent-updates>
        <game-scan-depth>4</game-scan-depth>
    <position height="688.0" width="1204.0" x="100.0" y="100.0"/>
</client>
Save youe changes to the minion.xml and restart Minion. If it works please let me know. If you get another error please post your new minion0.log.

Thanks!

I no longer get an error message with the line added, but minion doesn't start. It shows up in the Windows Task Manager under Processes, but not Applications. When I remove the line, it gives the same error message as before. I get the same results on the 64 bit version.

ipv6 vs ipv4?

May you facing an ipv6 incompatibility problem:

"I discovered a solution from a response to my post on the main Maven user forum. They suggested that I had run into an IPv4 vs IPv6 incompatibility problem and recommended either disabling IPv6 on my network adapter or using the -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true VM arg. I tried disabling the network adapter and that had no effect but the VM arg (via _JAVA_OPTIONS env variable) solved the problem."

from here:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/588928/to...ght-connecting

Just disabling the protocol binding may not help, because your DNS cache has an IPV6 address already.

It's just an idea. I don't use minion.

That worked! Thanks, votan.

I ran this in cmd
Code:
setx _JAVA_OPTIONS -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

votan, Thanks for posting this info! I'm glad it worked for Son_Raizen.

We are now working on a way for Minion to detect if this needs to happen and automatically set that environment variable.

Also thank you to Son_Raizen for posting the result.

Thanks for the heads up. The fix for Minion to autodetect this is taking way longer than planned. I hope to have something out soon though.
