since last week sometime (...when hard fork occured) my bitcoind client will not allow more than 8 connections via 8332... i set my config file to allow 30 (which my system has always maintained).

tldr; should i be using version 8.x when mining locally?

thanx all.

Issue #1: Bug that caused fork has been fixed. You can upgrade to 0.8.1 and mine with no problems.

Issue #2: To have Bitcoinqt maintain more than 8 connections, you have to forward port 8332 in your router. See here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=128122.0

thanks for your reply.

issue 2: ...was resolved via restarting the computer, 15 connections and climbing... thanx for link regarding port forward, albeit not needed. " i set my config file to allow 30 (which my system has always maintained)."

Sounds like your router uses UPnP and just needed some extra motivation to open that port for you.
