Sticky please? Repost? The Read Time Out error is not a new thing for Minecraft, nor the internet in general. This error occurs when Minecraft tries to send packets to the server, and when it comes back it comes back with incomplete or corrupted packets, otherwise unusable. The read time out error is NOT an error of bukkit, it's a common internet error to were somebody doesn't have a good internet connection. Another case is when certain plugins cannot send data properly and 'Times Out' crashing the clients connection with the server. Want help? Please reply with this information so we can help you.
