"* Unable to resolve local host"
try with the ip and not the "localhost" word.

about your password, are you sure it doesnt crush and rerun with the -m 
flag? The -m is to be run once in order to create the userfile. Try to 
run the bot with the -nt flags and then try to connect to it. This way 
you will be able to see the error it has :)
