[BioRuby] Remote blast not working?

I'm struggling to use the remote blast part of bioruby. I get errors using
either the ddbj or genomenet versions. With genomenet I get an error about
a nil response and with genomenet I get an error for 'cannot understand
response'. I've tried different combinations of databases and options but keep
getting the same problems.

Bio::Blast::Remote.ddbj('blastp', 'nr-aa', '-e 0.001')

Can anyone offer any suggestions?
