Check your firewall.

Redownloading shouldn't help anything.

This really shouldnt be happening and Medo put that message in there for the rare time it would happen :D
Try rebooting yet?  Any other strange computer behaviour? Scan for viruses?

Sounds like a permission or network config problem. The only time I heard of the error actually happening before was when someone tried running the game on WINE.

This happend probably because I'm hosting from a seperate computer,

the funny thing is though, that server is hosting on port 8191 and I didn't even port foward for this one :P

Though changing the port on the non-port fowarded computer worked
