Friend can't join minecraft server

Question

I hosted a minecraft server via minehut, but my friend can't join the server. I can join it without any issues. We both have a legal version of Java, so that can't be the problem. When he tries to join he gets an error: The authentication servers are down. Please help.

I had this too. When you join minehut for the first time, you have to authenticate yourself to prove your not a bot, this is a authentication server ( I think ūüôā¬†) and there down for maintenance.¬†¬†Even though¬† had joined before, I¬†had this. To fix, rejoin the server. If not, restart mc ( user joining ) . If not restart PC/Mac.¬†

Hope this helps! ūüėĄ

I have only ever had this issue for these 2 reasons:

Invalid name If your friend recently changed their name, the launcher will launch the game with your old name instead of new, and your game will not be authenticated. (fix: log out of your minecraft account on the launcher, and log back in)
Cracked account You didn't pay for Minecraft. (fix: buy the game)

Off topic: lolorvit bruh, u got banned how?

I was involved in one of the times Minehut was hacked. I just got my appeal accepted, so I will be back in 6 months.

If I at all helped, please react to my post with a ‚̧
