      Getting kicked out of friend's minecraft realms server with the following message: 

      Connection Lost
      Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

      What I expected to happen was...:
      I expected to be able to play the game with my friends and have a stable connection, as I am able to do that with every other game I play with them.

      What actually happened was...:
      I reported the issue in detail to minecraft support with the following information below:



      I followed every FAQ/help article on your website before reaching out.

      The owner of the realm is located near Kansas City, and I live in central Illinois so I know my location shouldn't be a factor. As for every other detail required, I will re-share what I sent in the first email below.


      I am constantly getting kicked out of my friend's Minecraft realm receiving the following message:

      Connection Lost: Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

      I have tried re-installing Minecraft, restarting my PC, turning firewall completely off, verifying that UPnP is turned on for every router port. My PC is connected to the router via ethernet cable, and every online game I play runs perfectly. For some reason I cannot stay connected to friend's Minecraft realm and it ranges from a minute to several minutes before I receive the message above. Can you please help me figure out what's wrong?


      Thank you so much for your time.
