Check whether the /coda directory exists, the venus-setup script in the
5.3.15 release failed to create it.

Check for running venus processes, only one process is allowed to connect
to the kernel (killall -9 venus).

Reinitialize venus before trying to connect to the testserver, either 'touch
/usr/coda/venus.cache/INIT' or start 'venus -init'.

i.e. the error is with your client or there might be a firewall between
your client and the testserver. The testserver is used a lot, if your
access to the internet doesn't have a firewall connecting to the server
shouldn't be a problem.
