Minion Not Working New PC

My minion stopped working before I built a new PC and when I put everything on my New PC it worked at first and then just stopped downloading addons or updating the currently installed ones. It will detect them. I have tried the troubleshooting and am at a loss. Advice would be appreciated.

Code: [] failed: Connection refused: connect

It's looking like all the other recent Eero issues people had.

8. If it says "Cannot connect" or Updates are no working, or it says "Connection timeout" in the minion.log file
Open the minion.log file with a text editor (Notepad e.g.) and search for
"Connect to [] failed: Connection refused:"
(Attention: The is not in there then, it's just an example and shows your IP address e.g.
Simply search for "Connect to" and check if the end of that line says "refused" -> If this is the case your Internet is blocking access to the ESOUI addons download website!

Be sure to allow Minion in your antivirus + firewall software (also within Windows Defender!). Search online for Whitelist/allow/exclusion and your antivirus/firewall software and/or router website/app to check how this will be done.
Also allow acess to the "" website in your router app/website.

2023-07: Especially if you use "Eero" as your router: It had an update and is blocking this website all of sudden. Allow it again in your Eero router app/config page!
