I am new to this game and forum. I am trying to use the foldit client in the Online mode but I cannot seem to connect. When the client starts, I enter my username and password (which I have confirmed is correct as I can log into this site). I then click the "Play Online" button, after some time, I get this error:
"A timeout was reached due to excessive server load. Sorry for the inconvience, Please try again later."
I have tried checking the "Disable network timeouts" option but the same error occurs. I have also tried to use a proxy:
which is found in the proxy settings of my Internet explorer but get this error:
"Couldn't resolve proxy error: Error contacting server."
I have been trying to connect for the past two days with no success. I can play the offline mode but I have run through all the tutorials.
Any advice is much appreciated.
