cgminer - Solo Mine with an AntMiner - Bitcoin Stack Exchange

Setting up solo mining just targeting USB erupters? PC/Mac?

I am having trouble trying to get solo mining started on either my PC or Mac. I have a PC set up that is using three 7950s that are mining Litecoins. I'd like to have my 2 USB erupters solo mining Bitcoins for fun on the same system. I have the drivers installed for the USB miners and my system recognizes them.
I am starting Bitcoin-QT as -server
My bitcoin.conf looks like this: listen=1 server=1 rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass
I set up a BFG .bat like this: bfgminer.exe -o 127.0.0.1:8332 -O -u user -p pass
When I launch that, BFG just crashes. I have also tried it with CGminer and that crashes also. I'd like to keep CGminer on the cards Litecoin mining and use BFG for the USB miners.
How do I get BFG to work just with the USBs? Also, do I need to input a Bitcoin address somewhere so if I did solve something I get the payout?
Sometimes, I do more work on my Mac and am also trying to set up the USBs to mine on a Mac using Diablo miner. Will that work the same way as the PC setup once we get it figured out?
Thanks for any help.

Is this set up properly for solo mining?

Right off the bat, I want to specify that I know this is ridiculously unlikely to ever find a block. I just upgraded my mining equipment and I am thinking I would like to use my old block erupters and antminers to run solo mining as a sort of lottery - in case one day I strike it lucky. In the meantime, my main mining equipment will be pointed to my usual pool. This is only for my own enjoyment!
That being said, can someone verify if I have this set up properly? I have figured out how to start my Bitcoin-qt in server mode, and I have established the .bat file for BFGminer as:
bfgminer.exe -S antminer:all -o 127.0.0.1:8332 -u me -p mypassword --set-device antminer:clock=x0b81
Is that correct? I start it up and have verification that my miners are hashing, but I also get the following line from BFGMiner:
"No suitable long-poll found for http://127.0.0.1:8332"
I have read on other threads here that if the miners are hashing it is working despite that error line. I would like to make sure as I don't have a background in programming so this is still pretty confusing to me.
Also, without specifying a payout address, any new block found will be credited directly to the bitcoin client wallet I am running as a server, correct? The text from the BFGMiner readme file is not clear on this point, and suggests my line should be:
bfgminer.exe -S antminer:all -o 127.0.0.1:8332 -u me -p mypassword --set-device antminer:clock=x0b81 --coinbase-addr myaddress --coinbase-sig "something else goes here"
Thanks in advance for the help. I know this will probably be fruitless, but I think it will be fun to play these old miners as a Vegas-style gamble and use my main equipment as my "real" mining.
I'm asking this partly because the directions in the readme file are vague:
"BFGMiner supports solo mining with any GBT-compatible bitcoin node (such as bitcoind). To use this mode, you need to specify the URL of your bitcoind node using the usual pool options (--url, --userpass, etc), and the --coinbase-addr option to specify the Bitcoin address you wish to receive the block rewards mined."
While I understand that this means a payout address can be entered, it does not specify if a payout address MUST be entered. I was under the impression that mined coins are paid directly to the bitcoin wallet that functions as a server.
" If your bitcoin node does not support longpolling (for example, bitcoind 0.8.x), you should consider setting up a failover pool to provide you with block notifications."
I'm pretty sure this is in reference to the long-poll error I am getting, but I'm not sure what it means.

Pool 0 slow/down or URL credentials invalid

Hey redditors,
Just recently got into mining, started with bitcoins but my rig is a little too slow to keep up with all the ASICs so I have moved to mining altcoins. My most recent venture has been with middlecoin and it WAS working great, but after about 20+ hours of mining I awoke this afternoon to find that my Kh/s had been steadily dropping all night and around 20 minutes before I walked up to my computer bfgminer said middlecoin.com:3333 is not responding. Now I am trying to re-establish a connection but all I get is the error in the title. I have tried running cgminer with the same .bat and I still get the same error. I have taken down my firewall and still cannot get it to work. I am also solo mining feathercoins with my cpu, I dont know if that may cause some issues but even with feathercoin-qt not on it still wont connect to the servers.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Solo mining is just like winning a lottery and there is no magic number that’ll guarantee results. You could either mine a block or you could never solve a block even after mining for a long time. However technically there is a chance of mining a block if you maintain proper communication with the network and keep submitting shares constantly. We can’t tell how long as It all depends on ... Finally, use 127.0.0.1:8332 as the server and the username and password you chose as the credentials to connect CGMiner or BFGMiner to the Bitcoin_Core client and have it mine. Therefore, this is how the process of Solo Mining takes place to do mining as a solo task. Pooled mining works fine, but I wanted to try solo mining for fun. I've set up my solo user name & password, launched my bitcoin-qt.exe in server mode, set GUI miner to solo server, etc. When I click the start mining button nothing happens and the console just sits at the following line: Running command: C:\Users\username\Downloads\guiminer\cgminer.exe -u username -p password -o http ...
