I'm giving a specific case here, but I think I have seen the same error trying to use stratum_proxy for any pool and coin I have tried.

When wemineltc.com briefly had a getwork server up, cudaminer worked great! But now that they're back to stratum only, I'm trying to get that to work.

I run the stratum proxy that I get from wemineltc and see this:

Then I run cudaminer with the following batch file (on windows 7 64 bit):

cudaminer.exe -o 127.0.0.1:8332 -O user:password

And see this:

C:\dev\cudaminer-2013-04-14>cudaminer.exe -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -O user:

[2013-04-16 08:29:52] 1 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.

[2013-04-16 08:29:52] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 15 seconds

I have tried a few different things but I always get that 401 error. Any ideas on resolving this?

The problem was with windows firewall. Turned it off, tried again, it worked. Turned it back on and set the appropriate windows firewall exceptions for stratum_proxy and cudaminer and it worked.

I had this problem suddenly appear again this morning. Turning off firewall made no difference. I changed cudaminer to point to my machine ip address instead of 127.0.0.1 and then it started working.
