    I have a blog in sourceforge and I just tried to install stats plugin, when I try to insert the API key I get:

    Error from last API Key attempt:

    Your blog was unable to connect to WordPress.com. Please ask your host for help. (transport error - could not open socket: 111 Connection refused)

    Is there a way to get around this?

    This might be a problem with your host. As I understand it, the stats plugin requires the fsockopen function, which your server might not allow. I have a shared hosting account and my registration failed at the same point (API key entry) for that reason.

    Then, I guess, there's no workaround for this... :-(
