    Says it wont connect to 127.0.0.1 on port 9### something.

    Do I need to port forward?...seems like an odd error i figured it would list an external ip?

    If your trying to mine solo, you need to add settings to your config file.
    Code:
    rpcuser=[username]
    rpcpassword=[pass]
    rpcallow=127.0.0.1, localhost
    rpcport=9998
    port=9999
    server=1
    
    Then to connect you would do /minerd -a X11 -o http://127.0.0.1:9998 -u [username] -p [password]

    Unless you have a massive botnet farm, mining solo with a CPU is not recommended. You should join a pool instead.
