Connection Error with PayPal

We are signed up with PayPal Website Payments Pro. We think we have the WA_Globals.php setup correctly. I pasted the setting below. When I click on the "Checkout" button, I get checkout_failure.php page. How can I diagnose where the problem is?

/* Payment Settings
* Use this key to determine the appropriate value for the $WAGLOBAL_Gateway setting:
* PayPal = 1
* = 2
$WAGLOBAL_Gateway = 1; //Enter the appropriate value based on the above key. PayPal is specified by default.
$WAGLOBAL_Test_Mode = false; //Set to true if you are testing your shopping cart and do not want to send information to your payment gateway.

//Only complete the payment gateway options for the gateway you have selected to use in the $WAGLOBAL_Gateway setting.

//PayPal Settings
$WAGLOBAL_Paypal_Sandbox = "false"; //Set to true if you wish to use the PayPal Sandbox for testing transactions.
$WAGLOBAL_Paypal_User = "";
$WAGLOBAL_Paypal_Password = "XXXXXXXXX"; ***(I blocked out the PW)
$WAGLOBAL_Paypal_Signature = "XXXXXX2GW"; ***(I blocked out the Sig)

// Settings
$WAGLOBAL_Authnet_Sandbox = "false"; //Set to true if you wish to use the Sandbox for testing transactions.
$WAGLOBAL_Authnet_login = "";
$WAGLOBAL_Authnet_tran_key = "";
