This thread is not for the problem you are having. It is for connection issues relating to the ftb launcher and not being able to download the mod packs.

*I pinged all servers listed and they all worked, so I only posted the relevant information to keep clutter down
**I've been playing FTB for a week now, 1st issue
***On startup launcher and console are completely white for around 2 minutes before loading.
****Download option is only automatic
*****Modpacks, textures, and maps are all blank. Only the news tab has actual information.
******I called creeper repo and got a network report. The los angeles server (the one i connect to) has been down for almost 3 hours now.

WORKS NOW

No idea what happened, I went to work last night and the launcher is up and running this morning. Everything booted up fast, no problems. Maybe the servers were down. Eh, oh well. Thanks!

Just moved my PC to a new house/internet setup. I wasn't sure if that was the cause or not. Firewall is off, regular minecraft runs fine. Reinstalled Java, MC and FTB cleanly. FTB Launcher takes a good 30 seconds to load now, and sits at 'Please wait while the mods are being loaded...'

Thanks for the help Ashzification

I have a problem that says Network is unreachable: connect: java.net.SocketException: Network is unreachable: connect. It won't download anything and I can't go to paste bin because it says Network is unreachable: connect. :( Please Help all my friends play on my friends server except for me because it doesn't let me.

Can't launch any modpacks nor login. The console log appears when I press "yes" once to play offline, nothing happens.
Strangely the vanilla launcher works fine.

I tried uninstalling EVERYTHING, and then downloading the launcher again from the site. I can't even download the launcher. I believe there to be an issue with Creeperrepo. When I try to download a modpack, it will only install a minecraft.jar. No mods will be added or anything.

Console log, pastebin.com link: none, as I cannot even launch minecraft
Ping Results: 100% data sent was recieved. No error there.

Basically what happens is that whenever I go to launch minecraft form ftb launcher, it just says "retrieving list of modpacks." This only started happening after I updated to the latest launcher. I am fairly adept with computers and I cannot figure out what is wrong with it. Any help is appreciated.

I can have the ftb launcher open but when I launch the jnew direwolf20 pack the launcher just closes. I have downloaded the files, i checked at download locations. I have used all the prior packs so im sure i did it right but i cant seem to get it to work this time. I run ftb as adminstrative so im pretty sure my firewalls are not stopping it. any ideas? im pretty sure this is the right thread for this my internet connection is good i can play a friends private server on minecraft forge but we are starting dw pack now and he got on bit i cant.
