Are you connecting to a pool, or to a local bitcoind?  If a pool, double check the host, port, username and password you are using.  If local, make sure it is set to accept RPC connections and double check that the bitcoind RPC username and password match the username and password of your miner.

i think it's a pool...

mining.bitcoin.cz

i initially tried that as the host, now i am trying api.bitcoin.cz which is also listed on that site. here's what's happening:

Go back to mining.bitcoin.cz, keep the port at 8332.  I just switched one of my miners over to it for testing, and it worked fine.

Make sure that you have a worker registered on the site, and that you are putting the right username and password for the worker into your mining client.  If you aren't absolutely sure you have it right, copy and paste them right out of the Workers section of your profile on the website.

[9/16/11 4:52:06 PM] ERROR: Can't connect to Bitcoin: connect timed out

-------------------------
Server host name or IP address [mining.bitcoin.cz]: mining.bitcoin.cz
Server port number [8332]: 8332
Miner username [xxxxx.xxxxxx]: xxxxx.xxxxxx
Miner password: xxxxx

Start mining automatically on log-in? [yes/NO]: n

Go to http://mining.bitcoin.cz:8332 using a browser on same the machine that you are trying to run Diablo on.  It should ask for your username and password.  Put in the username and password for your worker.  You should get back some JSON data.

If your browser can't connect at all, you have a connection problem to solve.
If it rejects your username and password, you aren't using the right ones.
If it all works, you have a firewall that is blocking the diablo application from connecting out.

Ok, just want to make sure I got this right. It's been running for 5 minutes, no errors like last time and it says:

Starting DiabloMiner (GPU)...

Is this how it's suppose to look?
