Gaim refuses to connect

Hello all,

I am new to this forum, and I hope that someone can help me. I am using Gaim for AOL IM. It has been working ever since I installed it, but I just got back home and realized that it does not work. When I try to login, it shows a box that says it's connecting, but nothing happens, and after a while it says that it could not connect. I am using a SuSE 9.0 machine with the latest Gaim 1.4.0. Please, help me!
