Saw the note that 2.7.1-beta was available. I updated my versions.php file to reflect it, hit 'Tools -> Upgrade' in the WP Admin and I'm presented with a "Connection Information" page.
Connection Information for... what? For my local server? For the remote WordPress server where the upgrades are located?
I gave it my server's IP (locally hosted) and an admin user/pass, but it says "Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct."
Any tips on how to begin troubleshooting this?
