Since I'm a newbie to this forum I have to post this help question somewhere.
First off, yes I'm new to all bitcoin and litecoin and all of these E-Value systems. I have been mining in pools for litecoins and that process is instant. Recently decided to try out the solo mining and decided to follow this post which I can not reply too being new here:
[TUTORIAL] Solo Mining Litecoins Guide--Windows! 

I have followed this Turtorial exactly by every sentence. Now, it seems to be working, based on that I see something happening in the "output" section of the ScriptMiner GUI. But it seems as though something is wrong as I do not see any transactions. Now I feel like maybe I am missing some general knowledge perhaps of how this whole thing works.

1) Should I see a small amount of ltc instantly?
2) Do I have to wait until this miner finds what is apparently called a "block" to mine? And then something happens?
3) What am I missing here?
4) Does the RPC Server need to be something difference?
Keep in mind I do not know all the tech lingo.

Here are screenshots of the 2 programs which the turtorial says to download and make it work. Both of these programs have been running for about 4 hours and nothing is happening differently.
The first is the Litecoin Wallet: Under server I can put 1 or localhost and the same difference.
You can see on the bottom right, it says Mining Litecoins at 2353 hashes per second. Yet there has not been any transactions over 4 hours.

Here is the 2nd screenshot of the ScriptMiner GUI
This has been running along when the RPC server is "localhost" and it shows in the output tab a bunch of stuff. It started at around 3000 hashes and now about a few hours it has dropped to around 200 or so hashes.  If I input 1 for RPC server, nothing happens.
