I've amassed enough cards to get 2G/hash on my own so it is time to go solo.

I've setup my primary machine with (2) 5870 cards cranking away at 620M/hash quite nicely via poclbm and bitcoin running with the -server option.

Now I am trying to connect another machine to the primary over the local network, I am using the string:
poclbm --u XXX --pass=XXX--host=IP ADDRESS -v -w128 --platform 0 -d 0

No matter how I tweak things (IP address vs. host name, etc) poclbm just returns "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC"

Both machines are Win7 Ultimate hardwired via gigabit ethernet, I have disabled the Win7 firewall on both machines.

Any suggestions?  I'd really like to get the rest of my GPUs crunching away tonight!

Sounds like even though you are using the -server option, you may not have your bitcoin.conf file set up properly.

Sounds like even though you are using the -server option, you may not have your bitcoin.conf file set up properly.
The bitcoin.conf file has just two lines at this time:
rpcuser=XXX
rpcpassword=XXX

Am I missing something crucial to allow network connections?

Thanks!

Ah! Got it, you sent me down the right path xenon481

I added the line rpcallowip=XXX and after restarting bitcoin the remote clients connected.

Thanks!

every now and then I have RPC problems, on 2 rigs, both run Windows XP SP3,

I'm not sure but problems show mostly when a new block is found

I'm trying Win7 x64, no RPC errors for 9 hours but hashrate is 2-3% lower on 5870 Sad

In Windows 7, make sure that you can see the file extensions. Otherwise you can wind up with a file that looks like bitcoin.conf, but is really bitcoin.conf.txt. And that doesn't work.
