You have to enable your wordpress to be able to accept the input.  Go to your wp-admin control panel and then go to Settings and then Writing... click the box to enable XML-RPC down towards the bottom and then save the settings.

Are you sure you have entered the correct username and password?  If so, does the user account have access to post to the software?

Look at the 5th from the bottom on that link... if that isn't it, is it more than a generic error??

No...I actually reinstalled the entire blog (losing all my work out of frustration) and still facing the same error with a fresh install of wordpress on 2 different domains.

XML-RPC Error
404 not found

404 not found usually means that the resource you are looking for on the web server is not found... who are you using for hosting?

I'm hosting my own with surpass.

Odd part is that I have a resellers account and another blog on a different domain works fine with the iphone app.

ngmenterprise.com works fine, theofleury14.com doesn't.

I don't have any plugins enabled and I tested it at a barebones level ie. wiped out hosting package altogheter, rebuilt domain and then tried with default settings.  No dice.
