Here is my bitcoin.conf

server=1
rpcuser=root
rpcpassword=passwordhere
rpcconnect=75.74.28.1.2 (last 2 digits randomized for security).
rpcport=8332
rpcallowip=107.180.44.217

So whats the issue? When I run it via localhost it is able to connect. Externally it isn't. Ports are forwarded and are open.

Without indication if your bitcoin.conf belongs to the client or server, I leave you some guidance on what to check:

  • Make sure your server bitcoin.conf has the following line:

    rpcallowip=your.client.ip.address

  • Both server and client bitcoin.conf should contain the same rpcuser and rpcpassword lines

    rpcuser=foo
    rpcpassword=bar

  • Make sure your client bitcoin.conf has the following line:

    rpcconnect=your.server.ip.address
