Hi,
I'm trying to use cgminer to do some mining on pools but, I cannot join any pools with it.

I actually can join my own local server doing ./cgminer -o localhost:8332 etc..
But, when I try to join an external server, like pit.deepbit.net, I have :

[2011-11-16 15:23:43] HTTP request failed: connect() timed out!
[2011-11-16 15:23:43] Failed to connect in json_rpc_call
[2011-11-16 15:23:43] FAILED to retrieve work from pool 0 http://pit.deepbit.net:8332

I also cant join a server on the LAN with the minner, but I have no problems to ssh this server, or ping it.

I'm using Ubuntu.

Are you behind a firewall that isn't letting port 8332 out?  Blocking of high ports is not uncommon.

Hi, I was able to download the blocks with the client, so I don't think high ports are blocked :/

Have you tried a pool on port 80? not sure if deepbit allows that, but bitminter (see my sig) does.
And you dont want to mine on deepbit anyway.

Are the pool worker username and password correct?
Some pools (including deepbit) require you to connect with a worker username and password, not your login username and password ...

Pool: https://kano.is Here on Bitcointalk: Forum BTC: 1KanoPb8cKYqNrswjaA8cRDk4FAS9eDMLU
FreeNode IRC: irc.freenode.net channel #kano.is Majority developer of the ckpool code
Help keep Bitcoin secure by mining on pools with full block verification on all blocks - and NO empty blocks!
