NAIM won't work, but Gaim does

I'm trying to get NAIM to work but when I attempt to connect I get this:
*** Connecting to TOC.
*** [CONNECT] Unable to connect to TOC: Connection failed, no route
to host.

I haven't done anything at all with IPtables so heres what it looks like
bash-3.00# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

So basically, there is no reason for naim to fail, especially since the rest of my internet applications, including Gaim, work fine. Any ideas?

The only thing I can think of is gaim is using OSCAR and Naim is using TOC.... Other then that I can't think of any reason NAIM would fail.
