server connection timed out

I've been having a bit of an issue in the past 24 hours. Basically, I have been accessing my server entirely fine the past few weeks on another device, when it was unable to connect to it, displaying that it was taking too long to respond, with a connection timed out error. This is occurring on both my main IP and local IP, however localhost still works fine. I haven't touched any of the firewall settings since starting it up, so I am unsure what is actually causing this. Has anyone had experience with this problem before or have an idea as to how to fix it?

I'm having the same problem on 1.1 and 1.2.1 trying to read on my tablet from the server on my desktop. I can only view from localhost or 192.168.1.. from my desktop now. 


Okay, so I may have figured out what is causing this to happen for me. I deleted the javaw.exe firewall exception in the 'allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall' menu and then put it back in, and that somehow seems to have fixed it. I think it may be just because it updates and for some reason the exception doesn't work unless you remove it and put it back in.
Let me know if that works for you

YES. This fixed it. Thanks. No idea why the setting changed.
