    That doesn't look good to be connecting to when your trying to lan...I downlownd eco straight from the sight, is eco being hacked. I use to have no issue's. Essentailly this is not allowing me to connect to games. ip I am connecting to is no a different part of the world then the antivirus is reacting to. the person I am connecting is on a lan. we have played lan many times before. never had this issue.

  • were you trying to join a multiplayer game? Or did you have checked "allow friends to join" when you created your world? I wonder if the connection attempt was another player trying to join? Also I wouldn't be completely alarmed, if you check most reputation engines polled are not flagging this IP, could be a false positive by your antivirus as well.

  • I was able to join other games, just not our home lan server, it was a Join, not a create. I am up to date on the dot net.

  • Will get him to check the server configuration after his work.
