I just installed guiMiner, and started trying to solo mine. with v0.3.24b. At the bottom of guiMiner, it says Bitcoin is downloading blocks, and to the left it says Connecting.. In the Bitcoin client it says it has 17 connections and over 74,000 blocks and constantly rising, but under the summary tab in guiMiner it says Connection Problems next to my miner. I have double checked all the help threads I could find, I don't know why it is doing this. Any help?
Everything is normal. Just be patient. The block count is currently 137,604. You cannot figure out what blocks to generate until you are caught up.
