I was setting up a faucet to give away some btc at nobanchan.com/faucet

The problem I am having is Fatal error: Uncaught BitcoinClientException: [0]: Connect error: Connection refused (111) thrown in on line 0

I have the RPC username/password/port in bitcoin.conf exactly the same as I do on config.php for the faucet.

I have forwarded the port from my WAN to my private IP in my router.

I have reopened bitcoin a few times. Also, I have set rpcallowip= my local IP, and my websites IP.

What else should I check?!

    I have the same problem with two servers trying to let them communicate.

    It seems like you have to set up "JSON-RPC Over SSL" as described here if you don't run client and server on the same machine (e.g. if you do not use "localhost"):

    I agree with @lagopixel here, I don't think this is a network error.

    First, if you want to use RPC commands with the bitcoin core you should add the "server" option (-server on command line or server=1 in bitcoin.conf).

    Then, I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with SSL conections but here are the options related to SSL for the bitcoin core (just in case):

    • rpcssl: Use OpenSSL (https) for JSON-RPC connections
    • rpcsslcertificatechainfile=file.cert: Server certificate file (default: server.cert)
    • rpcsslprivatekeyfile=file.pem: Server private key (default:server.pem)
    • rpcsslciphers=ciphers: Acceptable ciphers (default: TLSv1.2+HIGH:TLSv1+HIGH:!SSLv2:!aNULL:!eNULL:!3DES:@STRENGTH)

    Moreover, note that using JSON-RPC over SSL is strongly discouraged.
