So I've setup my own Pushpool server, and now I'm trying to connect using GUIMiner

The server is up and running, this is what my terminal says:

sbin/pushpoold -E -F
[2013-04-19 20:33:5.395392] Listening on host :: port 8336
[2013-04-19 20:33:5.395592] Listening on host :: port 8337
[2013-04-19 20:33:5.395792] initialized

and on the GUIminer I connect with

Host: http://localhost
Port: 8336
Username: username (what I have set in SQLite3)
Password: password

But then when I start mining my console says this

2013-04-18 14:40:53: Running command: poclbm.exe username:password@http://localhost:8336 --device=0 --platform=0 --verbose -r1

2013-04-18 14:40:57: Listener for "Default" shutting down

Anybody here have any idea on how to fix this? Thanks.

You're adding the server the wrong way. The way you note the server's address isn't valid URI syntax.
