Ok so I have been trying to get my computer at work set up to fold and I have been failboating it hardcore.

[15:51:19] - Ask before connecting: No
[15:51:19] - User name: _k_ (Team 93)
[15:51:19] - User ID not found locally
[15:51:19] + Requesting User ID from server
[15:51:19] - Couldn't send HTTP request to server
[15:51:19] (Got status 403)
[15:51:19] + Could not connect to Primary Assignment Server for ID
[15:51:19] - Couldn't send HTTP request to server
[15:51:19] (Got status 403)
[15:51:19] + Could not connect to Secondary Assignment Server for ID
+ Could not get ID from server. Retrying...
[15:51:36] - Couldn't send HTTP request to server
[15:51:36] (Got status 403)

I can ping the servers. I am logging into a domain. As far as my boss says we don't have a proxy.:confused: I have tried using the IP for the web filter with no avail, same issue.

    "10.4.4 403 Forbidden

    The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated. If the request method was not HEAD and the server wishes to make public why the request has not been fulfilled, it SHOULD describe the reason for the refusal in the entity. If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 404 (Not Found) can be used instead."

    Not sure if this helps any...

    Something else to try - make sure the your antivirus is set to exempt the F@H folder(s). Some AVs can cause problems like you are describing.
