  1. Make sure to manually type in the IP for the server. Yes, it sounds stupid, but it should work.

    You may be accidentally getting a space at the beginning of the IP Address, which would cause that; there is a chance of a space at the end from a copy-past job as well, as well as just an issue with copy-pasting the IP in general.

  1. You're putting in the IP wrong if it's saying that.
