I have the same problem on version 0.3.21 for Mac. 0 connections and the client have been running for three hour. I did not have this problem three days ago.

I have the same problem on Ubuntu 11.04 x64, both using stable and RC3 client.
No errors appear on the terminal, the client just doesn't connect. Port 8333 is forwarded.

edit: never mind, I just got one connection. Still weird.

My Bitcoin client also seems picky about when it wants to download new blocks. Right now it's 10 blocks behind, but with 3 connections. It doesn't appear to be downloading any blocks.

I've been getting the same connection issues as well, so I just went to the conf and added every node on the fallback list, and set maxconnections to 50 and noirc to 1.  I feel bad for relying solely on the fallback nodes, but I don't know what else to do, I can't connect any other way.  I also can't access main site.  (I've tried the site and the client via VPN as well, so it's gotta be something on my computer.  I've checked the firewall and the router and everything is fine, but by god I still can't connect!!!)
