Smush Pro server is not reachable

hi,
getting the message
"Oh Snap! Seems like Smush Pro server is not reachable, you can try back in some time."

currently on WPengine without any DNS pointed yet (not staging),
was just wondering if this might be an issue or if its "Smush Pro"
also on their new php 5.5 platform which apparently has some issues with login plugins they claim.

kind regards.
