Chat Connection Problems

Having trouble connecting to our free sex chat rooms?


Using Firefox for the Original Chat / Old Chat?

Version 31 of firefox will not work with our OC chat rooms. Luckily mozilla released an update to firefox that fixed this issue. Click here to see how to check your version of firefox to make sure it is not 31.


If the chat system is down, and Nash knows about it, it will be posted above here / at the top of this page.

If the main chat system is down and I do not know about it, others will likely post a comment on down below. (look for the date and time that comments are posted)

When the main OC / Original Chat / Old chat system is down, many of our users will pop into the “new chat” aka peeps cams chat system. Over time I expect more and more people to use the new mv-chat system or the mf-chat-rooms systems as these newer options become more popular.


If the main chat system is working fine for everyone else, yet you still can not connect, the most common problems and their respective solutions are posted below:

Did you try to login and get just the blue screen, or a message that said “Disconnected” or “connect failed” or something like that?
If so, there are many possible causes, especially with our new security layers, it’s no big deal, just get back to the chat room screen, and refresh / reload the page. Some users will need to get a fresh / non-cached version of the page, so you may need to hold down the shift key while clicking reload / refresh page (most browsers will work with shift + F5)

** If you saw a message saying something like “could not connect Server Sent No Data”

    you may be in one of our blocked countries ( Romania, and a few others )
    or using an ISP (internet service provider) a proxy or vpn service that has made it on our bad / blocked list
    or you have been manually added to the permanent ban list

– reloading the page will do no good.

You could get the message “could not connect / server sent no data” and not be on a ban list or a blocked ISP or country list.
There are a few times a year when our chat server goes offline, and no one can connect. Usually when this happens other people will post comments below here asking if it’s a global issue. You can see by the times and dates of comments below the times when our chat server was giving this message to everyone (unless you are the first to notice and comment on that particular day); although it does not happen very often, it has happened a few times over the years.

Many users will likely migrate over to our “New Chat, or Peeps Cams Chat” during a service interruption with our main / OC (original chat rooms).

We have blocked huge ranges of ISPs and networks from accessing the chat system, so if you are using Orange.fr to access the internet and get that fail message, we have blocked most of Orange.fr – and many other large blocks of Internet Addresses from several Internet Service Providers that we have had problems with. If this problem persists for you for more than 8 hours, you might want to comment below and ask if your ISP, VPN, Proxy, or Country is on the banned list. It could be that you are using the same internet pipes that others have used that violated our rules and you are now caught up in a broad range ban, or it could be that you have triggered this ban.

If you are having an issue with the font going crazy, or the chat not letting you type after you get or send a pm or whisper

– then there are two possible culprits.

1 – Recent updates of Internet Explorer and Adobe flash have been giving people trouble – try using a different web browser such as firefox to see if that fixes the problem. We have not had time to research whether this is an IE problem, or a setting / plugin within Internet Explorer that is causing this issue.

2 – some of our chat room pages have too much java, and cause some weird issues on some systems – if this is the cause of your issue, then you should be able to use the chat room on this light graphic / less java intense chat rooms page. If that fixes your issue, then we know what to look for in this case to fix.

If you get an error message in Internet Explorer about ActiveX being blocked, you need to click the bar near top of the window and tell IE it’s okay to run our chat program on site – graphic showing this here on java support page.

You see a white box / screen. The page loads, but the chat room does not appear.

You must have the VERY LATEST updates for the Java plugin and Adobe Flash plugin. This is the most common problem that users have. Even users that have been able to use our free text chat rooms in the past may not be able to connect after a new update to flash or java has been released by sun or adobe. This is due to security issues, and is easily resolved by doing on update of these two plugins, and you may need to restart your computer.

Do you see an error message when trying to load / connect to the free text chat rooms?

1 – Error message displayed – username or IP address is banned:
It could be that the username you have chosen got banned by someone else, so you could try to connect with a different username. If that does not work, then it could be that someone got a broad range ban place on the IP address block that your ISP assigns to you. You can read why we do broad range bans that may affect other users who were not the ones we intended to ban. If you did, or think that you did not do something that got you banned, then read then read info about getting kicked / banned from the chat room for more info.

2 – Error message displayed – something like “Server sent no data” – first make sure the plugins listed above are updated and try again to connect, on the chat room page, hold down the shift key, and click refresh / reload the page.

Most users will be able to connect to our free sex chat rooms just fine after checking the things listed above. If you still can not connect, I’d like to know about it, and these additional tips below may sort out the problem.

There are many possible causes for not being able to connect to the chat rooms. There could be internet delays, trouble with one or more ISPs not being able to route the info to you from our data center, hardware or software that is blocking the two way java and flash connection from our web server to your network, router, or computer. Some things will be out of your control, such as the superstorm that knocked down a big chunk of internet flow in Nov 2012, and there are other possible reasons, but lets try the easiest fixes first.

Try a different web browser.

If you are using Internet Explorer, try connecting to our chat using Firefox, Chrome, or Opera. Likewise, if you are using firefox, or chrome, try to connect using Internet Explorer. Sometimes a plugin for one of the browsers causes trouble that is not an issue when using a different browser on the same computer. If you are able to connect with one and not the other, then the good news is that we now know there is some reason that one browser on your system is not allowing the necessary connections, and you will be able to connect using a different web browser! We could go into reasons why one browser works and the other doesn’t – but I am trying to keep this short and simple to help the majority of users without overwhelming everyone with too much. We could discuss those in the comments below perhaps.

Note that currently our chat rooms system require a computer web browser that supports Java and Flash. This means that most mobile devices will not be able to access the current free text chat rooms. iPhones, iPads, most android devices, and similar devices do not support Java and Flash at the time of this writing. We are experimenting with different technologies to bridge this gap in the future, but right now there is so many changes in the mobile computing field that it is tough to know if html5, or some other technology will be broadly adapted to bridge this gap. We are working on a solution, but the computer gods are not making it easy at this time, sorry! If you are stuck using a mobile device for chat, you could probably use our sex chat peeps social section or email like private messaging, and you may have some luck with the Live Jasmine networks new mobile friendly design.

Turn off your firewall / antispyware / antivrus protection temporarily, and try to connect.

Make sure you turn your protection back on as quickly as possible – just try disabling your suite, or individual components of your suite, and see if you can then access the chat rooms. There could be parental filtering software built into your protection suite, or something that is set in your firewall / antivirus software that prevents the necessary two-way communication with our chat server. If this solves the problem, then it should be possible to go into your protection software and add an exception for our web server, that way you can leave your protection turned on and access the chat rooms. We will have to go into the various ways to do that in the comments or something, as it would take a ton of text here for the various software suites different ways of opening access.

Try a different computer or connection.

If you have another computer at your location, try a different computer and see if that one can access the chat rooms using the same internet connection. If using the same internet connection / ISP / and network (router, etc), but using a different computer makes it so that you can connect to the chat rooms, then we know it is something on that one computer that is preventing your access.

Try to connect using the same computer, one a different network.

If you are using a laptop, try taking it to a coffee shop or friend’s house and see if you can connect to the chat that way. If your computer will access the chat rooms at friend’s house, but not at your place, then we can assume something with your network is preventing access. Some routers will block the two way communication that Java needs to use our chat system.

If you are using a router at your place that splits the internet connection between several systems, or using a wireless network, try plugging in directly to your cable modem / DSL modem or whatever. You will need to unplug the router, plug your computer directly into the main modem, and restart your computer. If this solves the issue, then we know it is something else outside your computer, likely “port blocking” on your router’s security settings, or a weak wifi signal.

Using Hughes Net, Dish Internet or other satellite ISP?

I tried to troubleshoot with a regular user for days on possible issues, only to find that he was using a satellite internet service provider, and it simply could not handle the needed upload speed to stay connected to our chat server. The satellite ISPs are great with download speeds most of the time, you will probably be able to watch videos and other intensive bandwidth applications just fine as long as you are downloading data mainly. Our chat rooms need a fast connection for download and upload stream as well. I have not tried our chat with a dial up ISP running at 56k, it may work, it may not, but there is something with the speed ratio of most satellite ISPs that will likely prevent you from being able to use our chat system. If it downloads data at 100 mph, but the upload is going at 5 mph, then you can imagine that your sending, receiving, and our web server’s syncing of the chat messages will simply fail. You could try regular dial up and see if that speed ratio works better, or one of the cellular phone service providers to see if they work okay. Those options will not give you the download speed to download large movies quickly, but they may be better calibrated for two way communications.

Other issues preventing access to the free text chat rooms

There are other issues that could affect your ability to use our chat system, some company networks block aspects of Java from running, some countries have blocks on adult web sites. There are possible issues with the internet as whole, and it could be one of the rare instances where are web server is having a problem. Over the years I think our chat system has been down a total of about 48 hours, so 99.9 times out of 100 our server is handling everything just fine. If our web server was down you would likely not be able to read this page, so that’s probably not the issue at the moment.

Some people have trouble with the two way communication needed with their ISP. We have found that many users from parts of Africa get massive delays in the sending and receiving of the “packets” needed for our chat system to function. Many of these users will not notice major affects when downloading static pages from around the internet, but our system requires not just downloading of information, but uploading and downloading, and doing both in a synced up manner. If your ISP is far away from Arizona, USA – then there is a good chance all the hops around the world can cause problems.

I hope the information on this page helps most of our visitors solve most of their connection problems. I may come up with some other problems and solutions to add and update this page with later. For now, I think most people will have the problems fixed when they update Java and Flash.

If the solutions listed above do not work, we may be experiencing some difficulties with the chat system. Due to our recent popularity – there may be times when the chat system is overloaded, and not accessible. You will find discussions about the chat system being up or down, and info about our backup chat systems on this off site page at wordpress dot com – scsc chat backup info.

Many users will likely migrate over to our “New Chat, or Peeps Cams Chat” during a service interruption with our main / OC (original chat rooms).

Since our OC has been down more than 30 minutes, I am also opening up a preview of our MV Chat system that will be coming online for everyone 24/7 in the near future.

We are also working to further the new version of our mobile friendly flashy chat, the new MF Chat rooms system in the near future as well.

You may also get information from other users about the current state of the chat system at our new chat backup site at sex chat space.

  1. evidently my IP address was banned — not sure why … i had logged into the lesbian room & within 2 minutes i was kicked and now am being told i am banned. I know the screen name i was using is frowned upon in that room but it is the only link i can use to get to the other rooms. The other links don’t allow me to sign on (just time me out). I received no warning / no request to leave — which i was in the process of doing anyway . I didn’t even see a MOD in the room at the time. Could this be rectified?

  2. hi, i signed in just a few minutes ago — i was not in the lesbian chat room for more that 1 1/2 minutes when i was banned. I know the user name i was under was not allowed in the room, but that is the link i use to get into the sight — i was attempting to join another room at the time of the banning. i received no warning – no request to leave as i have in the past — just banned. Could this possibly be removed. i am ver clear on the rules but as i said it is the only link i can use to get into the rooms – the other links don’t allow me to get on it just times me out.

  3. I keep getting “The connection was reset” and I tried all of the steps on the connection problem page. It was working fine at my friends house but not at mine. So far as I know I haven’t broken any rules.

    • DannyBoy – as is posted above:

      If you saw a message saying something like “could not connect Server Sent No Data”

      you may be in one of our blocked countries ( Romania, and a few others )

      • thing is I’m not. I was on it this morning and I was still in Germany. and it usually works.

      • I mean to say, there isn’t a list of banned countries so I guess I can’t be sure but if Germany was on it, wouldn’t I have not been able to get on before? My flatmate and I use the site all the time it’s a great site

        • DannyBoy – this is kind of weird… One of our ip lookups shows your assigned ip addy as coming from Germany, and another service shows it’s coming from Romania, which is a banned country currently. I am not sure, but I am assuming that your ISP has either bought, or been “re-allocated” ip assignments that once were “owned” / controlled by an ISP in Romania. It will likely take a few weeks before the city / country ip tables are updated around the net. During that time, our chat server will still think your IP addy is coming from (currently banned) Romania. I don’t think there is anything I can do to speed up this ip table update, but if you find that you still can not connect after 14 days from your main location check back with me and I will see if there is anything else I can do. Sorry!

          • I’m sorry, I’m not a techie and I’m having a hard time understanding this. So I’m in Germany but my ISP is being routed through a Romanian company? Is there anything I can do to make it work on my end?

            • Danny Boy… hmm.. think of it like this… in the US there are like 999,999,9999 phone numbers.. ip addys are kind of like that, currently limited (although ip v6 is coming!)

              So with a finite amount of phone numbers, when populations shift, businesses change… a phone number that was once used for a business in New York may be transferred to a new business in California one day. So today if you call that number it rings to a place in Cali… but when our chat room server checks the number (your IP addy) – it is using a slightly out dated (not yet updated) phone book, and thinks you are calling from Romania. I THINK your ISP has bought or been given a bunch of end users addresses that were once controlled by a different company in another country. It normally only takes a few days for these things to get updated, although I have seen cases where it takes 30 -60 days before some of the “internet address books” are updated.

              Unfortunately our chat server system does not use the premium super expensive “updated every 24 hours” Geoip books. I’d love to access that info, but we have to rely on the less often updated and much cheaper address books available.

              Maybe I will just unblock Romania for a week and then see if you can access next week if we turn the block back on. I’ll need to check a few things first.

            • okay DannyBoy – give it another try now and let’s see if you can connect now.

          • Sorry this is the first chance I’ve had to get on and check this. Thank you for the explanation it makes perfect sense. Whatever you did seems to have worked, my flatmate was able to get on the chat from the house. thanks for the help :)

  4. DistinguishedOlderMale™

    is anyone else having troubles with ahving to log in 2 or 3 times before it lets you into the room… I loogged in twice and got an empty room with no users twice..

    • ladylikes™✪TallOne(m)™s lady✪

      I have been disconnected several times and could not get back in for at least 15 minutes….. – today.

      • ladylikes – I don’t see any connection problems with the chat server side of things. My guess is internet traffic congestion from your country to the switches that handle things across the pond. Hope this is not a persistent issue!

  5. ladylikes™✪TallOne(m)™s lady✪

    Dear Nash – I made a comment on the mod complaint page – although I had no complaint….just to inform you.
    That was hours ago – it says my comment is waiting for moderation….
    Actually I am signed in on almost every site.
    Would you please check on this? Thanks.

    ladylikes.

  6. I get one message off and I get knocked out. I have to log on every time. Why is this happening?

    • Jordon – there are many things that could cause such an issue. If you run through the troubleshooting steps listed above it may narrow down the cause and possible solutions.

  7. most of the time when i try to load http://www.sexchatsexchat.com/html/javachat.html The page loads but then where I normally log is a white box saying “the connection has timed out”. Any help would be greatly appricated.

    • dick needs to cum – did you try the things posted above?

    • dick needs to cum – I checked a few things on our end. It looks like you are using an ISP that we have had some difficulties with in the past. Since we received no response from your ISP some times ago when we filed an abuse complaint against one of their users, we were forced to add some large “broad range bans” against thousands of the IP addy assignments that they give to their customers. Unfortunately so long as you use that ISP – you will likely not be able to connect with our chat system.

  8. Hi,

    I have been on this site numerous times over the years. For some reason now I cannot log in and it is on multiple computers. Can you please advise if I have been blocked?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    • Chris – which screen name(s) have you used in our chat?
      We did block a large amount of networks that your ISP handles, and I am not at my secure log computer to check the details at this moment.

  9. Hello,
    I use to be on this sight all the time, but the thing is, once I got my windows 8, it wont let me send any of my messages. I don’t know what to do, and I’d really like to get back on sexchat. please help.
    -sammy

  10. for some reason when i use this name i get kicked almost instantly this has never happened before and i don’t know why i keep getting banned for using this name

  11. Hi there does somebody want to chat ? Lonely tonight

  12. Hi,, I am fronm the UK and have not been able to access your site for the past 5 days. i have checked I have the required software and updated this and also tryed internet explorer and chrome, my normal browesr is fire fox which i have checked. The page loads but then where I normally log is a white box saying “the connection has timed out”. Any help would be greatly appricated.

    • Claire – we have had several problems with a particular person who uses the same ISP that you do. After many messages to your Internet Service Provider about this individual violating our terms of service, we were forced to start doing some broad rang bans blocking thousands of IP addy assignments that your ISP allocates to end users. It seems that some of these broad range bans may be affecting you at this time.

      I am just now waking up, after some espresso I can dig a little deeper in this issue and perhaps find a way to work something out where you can regain access and we keep some others blocked.

  13. ladylikes™-TallOne(m)™s lady-

    Dear Nash – we are having connection problems again at this time – looks like it hit mainly users from Europe and a few other not Canadians or Us users. We keep dc and sometimes we can’t log in with our normal user names. It happened to me as well. When I try to log in with a different name – it works.

    I find this odd. It has happened several times.

    I am in now with ladylikes, but could not log in with my name earlier. The same happened to inno.

    Maybe you can look into this please. Thanks.

     

    ladylikes.

     

    • Heya Ladylikes, I checked into our chat rooms server stuff and everything looks like it’s been fine here. I am guessing that there was some major internet congestion on the hops across the ocean for a while and it caused the timeouts. I know some of the big internet peeps are working on laying additional undersea cables to avoid that kind of thing. Hopefully we will see less of this in the future.
