I have been mining on ecoinpool a private pool now for two months.  I have found 2 different BTC blocks and both blocks show as orphaned and nothing to show for my work.  Any ideas why I am getting orphan blocks?  How do I fix this problem?  Instead of mining earning nothing I think I am better off mining a regular pool since I have no payouts with 2 blocks found.

This is for an alternate currency.  

Please move this thread there:

[Apologies, I confused ecoinpool with encoin, which an alternate currency (still in the proposed stage apparently yet though.)]

Orphan blocks can be because of bad network conditions, but having 2 in a row does suck. What is your network like, OP?

Network only has 3 pcs connecting and mining from the pool.  Total hashrate is just under 5 Gh/s.  I am connected on a verizon fios line so I am not sure.  I have successfully mined namecoins but the last 2 bitcoins both orphaned along with their matching namecoins.  The other namecoins found in between the bitcoins are fine and generate payments.

Sounds like the version of Bitcoin ecoinpool is running is dangerously out of date.
