in log file FAHlog file and in console i m getting this entry

Could not get ID from server. Retrying...

make sure you're connected. try to disable the firewall, or at least unblock port 8080
which F@H use for connecting to their server. make sure this port is available i.e
close any program that might be using it as well.
i found that on the web hope it helps

yup seems google agrees

F@H uses 2 TCP ports: remote port 80, and local port 8080
