Cant get it working on MAC

Ive got a Mac running OSX 10.7.2. I downloaded the foldingathome fah6 client and enabled it with username and team number (DW's number). When I run the stats through my console app I keep getting

Executable: /usr/local/fah/fah6


[20:51:50] - Ask before connecting: No
[20:51:50] - User name: Hoikey (Team 173855)
[20:51:50] - User ID: 1871F87F52524A89
[20:51:50] - Machine ID: 1
[20:51:50]
[20:51:50] Loaded queue successfully.
[20:51:50] - Preparing to get new work unit...
[20:51:50] Cleaning up work directory
[20:51:50] + Attempting to get work packet
[20:51:50] - Connecting to assignment server
[20:51:54] + No appropriate work server was available; will try again in a bit.
[20:51:54] + Couldn't get work instructions.
[20:51:54] - Attempt #1 to get work failed, and no other work to do.
Waiting before retry.


Just keeps retrying and failing :S. Anyone else had this problem?
