Arachni not scanning the web site (?)

I have set up arachni on my Mac. I launch the web page and set up a scan on my company's web page but the scan doesn't progress from 0% ( left it running for over an hour )

A command line scan against the web site
Peters-MacBook:bin peter$ ./arachni
Runtime: 00:00:05

The web page report from the manual scan presents little to no info on my scan. Am I doing something wrong or can I assume my web site is properly "locked-down" ?

    Looks like an anti-DoS filter, and a very aggressive one at that. It responded to the first request fine but when Arachni started queuing a few concurrent ones it cut it off immediately.
