The most common way to fix this is to uninstall all of your Java versions on your computer and re-installing them. You can find installs here.

- If allowing it in your firewall did not fix it, it could also be
caused when an application forces Java to use IPv6 instead of IPv4.
To fix this, please look in your installed programs for a program
