I suspect this has to do with proxy server settings on your machine.
If you file a bug from within the software (Help->SubmitBugReport),
a recent portion of your VenueClient.log file will be included and we'll
be able to identify and resolve the problem. I'd encourage you to do
this so we can fix it for you and anyone else who might encounter it.
I believe I already understand the problem and can help you get it fixed
