I have been having a good (although challenging) time setting up a remote linux server with Litecoind and P2Pool and I am so close now, I can almost taste it.  Unfortunately, when I boot up CGMiner on my local computer with this command..

"cgminer --scrypt -o xxx.xxx.10.220:9327 -u 714sqvBfVLexxxxxxxxyeKyb6vXy7Ao -p x"

CGMiner is giving me an error like "unable to connect, there may be an issue with the address, port, or you didnt configure a worker."  I am not sure why I cant connect!  I can ping my pool server just fine, and I did open port 9327 in the iptables of the server.

I believe it may have something to do with the text that P2Pool spits out when it boots up:

     ...done loading 22471 shares (13866 verified)!
 Initializing work...
     ...success!
 Joining p2pool network using port 9338...
 > Unhandled Error
 > Traceback (most recent call last):
 > Failure: twisted.internet.error.DNSLookupError: DNS lookup failed: address 'liteco.in' not found: [Errno -2] Name or service not known.

 Listening for workers on '' port 9327...
     ...success!


1) How do I fix that DNSLookup Error?
2) Why is it saying 'Listening for workers on " port 9327'  (that seems wrong)
3) How do I set up P2Pool so you can just use an address as your worker name ?
4) why cant CGminer connect?

For the record, my CGMiner connects to a different remote pool server perfectly.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated and I am sure that other devs will benefit from this as well.  Happy mining!

I'm getting the exact same "DNS lookup failed: address 'liteco.in' not found" error after pulling down latest p2pool from GitHub a few days ago.

I'm getting this error as well.  Anyone find a solution?

Edit.  Turns out you can ignore this error.
