In order for honey pots to work they must be able to contact our servers to receive new honey pot addresses. If they cannot, they will not work and will not activate. It appears that, for one reasons or another, your honey pot cannot make a connection.

This could be caused by any number of things. It could be that your hosting provider firewalls out-bound connections. It could be that your server's particular setting prevent such connections. In any case, if your honey pot can't connect to our servers then there's no way to activate it.
