Try setting pool difficulty to your GH/s.

Somewhere on the forums they have a chart for that. Smiley

In solo mining, there really are no "shares".  Until your miner produces a hash that is equal to or greater than the network difficulty, nothing will be accepted.  When one is accepted, you will have mined a block, and will receive 25 BTC + transaction fees.

I assume here that you are using the GBT solo-mining mode of cgminer and mining directly to a local bitcoin node.
