Failed to Authenticate error only on Forge

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been having this issue for the past 3 days trying to fix it, for some reason I'm having issues with authenticating but it only happens when using forge. Whenever I try to join any server on forge it gives a "Failed to login: the authentication servers are currently not reachable" error. It also applies for singleplayer worlds, my skin is always steve since it can't authenticate. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated as I feel like I've tried literally everything I possibly can. Just so that you know, I've already checked my hosts file to verify that it's not blocking any minecraft connections, as well as various other fixes that haven't ended up resolving the issue. The only way I've found to get around the error is to use a VPN.

Sorry about that, just thought mediafire was well known enough since I've been using it for years. Kind of my go-to file sharing site. Also cause I didn't know how to use github, but I think I figured it out. Here's the link.

Also just got your new reply, what exactly would be blocked? I've already allowed the 25565 port through incoming and outgoing connections through my firewall for minecraft.

It's not a firewall thing, it has to do with what you are using to connect with your ip address, either ipv4 or ipv6. From what I've been told, it's likely that one direction is blocking the ipv6 traffic, using ipv4 instead preventing the connection from occurring. As such, you need to change the settings for your device or router to either block ipv6 traffic incoming and outgoing, or don't block either.

Nevermind that was actually very easy to figure out, thanks so much! That actually seemed to fix the issue. I joined the server with no problem this time.

Hey there, now i gotta ask since i'm in the same situation, how did you fix it in the end?
