On the rare occasion that the ESEA Client server is actually down it will be noted here. If everything appears to be operational then the suggestions below should resolve your issue.
1. Sometimes all you need to is uninstall and reinstall the ESEA client. You can always download the latest ESEA client here.
2. Disable Windows Defender and any security software that you may have running.
3. Make sure port 27054 is open and non-restricted on your router or firewall. You will need to refer to your router's documentation or portforward.com for assistance.
The above suggestions did not work, now what?
At this point it is a good bet that a security program of yours is, in fact, interfering with the ESEA client even while it is disabled. There is no need to worry as this is relatively common.
Simply based on how the ESEA client operates many security programs will flag our client as a threat even while disabled.
In order for us to determine without a doubt that a security program (normally anti-virus software) is not interfering with the ESEA client, we will need you to fully uninstall the security programs that you have on your computer (temporarily of course). Sometimes when you add an exception for the ESEA client or have just disabled the software it can still cause an issue just from being on your computer so this step must be completed.
As soon as you have uninstalled all of the security programs, proceed to once again uninstall the ESEA client, download and then install a fresh copy of the ESEA client with zero security software installed this time.
