I have a bitcoin server and a bitcoin miner (GUI version of poclbm) running on Windows 7 64 bit. This computer is behind a router and port 8332 is forwarded to this machine. It's internal IP address is 192.168.0.195

I have a bitcoin miner running on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. This computer is behind the same router as the windows server+miner above.

Whenever I go to run the poclbm miner from Ubuntu using variations of -o localhost, 192.168.0.195, my_router_ip, etc... I get the error message "Problems Communicating With Bitcoin RPC".

I have setup a password in my bitcoin.conf file on windows and know that it works because a miner has been successfully running on windows for the last few days.

I do not have a bitcoin client running on the Ubuntu machine. Only the windows machine.

The only possible idea I have as to why this might not work is because I downloaded poclbm directly from git and perhaps it was in the process of being worked on/upgraded? (I have absolutely no idea how git works).

What are your thoughts?

That worked, thank you!

Does anyone know if there is a "how to guide" or pdf file or anything for poclbm or do I just have to read through the entire thread? (If so, maybe I'll make one!)
