Connection Refused

Im trying to install DriverLoader in my ongoing attempts to get my wpc54g to work with linux. i ran the rpm package that supposedly installed the package, after which im supposed to go to However, when I try to go there, or localhost, or localhost:18020 etc, I get the error:

"The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost."

What can I do? Ive tried logging in as root and it wont go either.

Have you launched the program before doing the thing? If not, then there'll not be anything listening on that port.

You might wan to switch off your firewall too.
