1  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: S9 Solo troubleshooting on: March 12, 2018, 01:14:22 PM
Bfgminer works fine with the S9. Sounds like you have network or electrical issues. What kind of power are you feeding the S9? What's your network setup?


When you say it works fine, do you mean as part of a pool ? (i.e. a opposed to solo)

thanks

Does the S9 say anything?

Says Alive on the first line with the stratum URL but  (I'm not sure if I ever saw the http line be alive - I thought http was for solo and stratum for pools..)  I can rerun it and get more info if it helps..



So.. should I give up mining solo with an S9?

It's been over a week banging my head - Linux and Windows, and different machines...

Any advice would be helpful..

Thanks!

Hi;

New at this, but I got as far as securing 2 S9's and plugging them in.  They are hashing for a pool, while I try to figure out how to solo mine with them.

I want to be able to play with a candidate block.  It's academic in a sense - I want to see the mechanics in play, from constructing a custom transaction, to watching a miner take it and attempt to assemble a valid block.

I understand that by joining a pool, we give up that part of the Bitcoin blockchain process.

Are my assumptions wrong?
Is there any hope of mining solo with an S9, (with Core attached) ?



Thanks for any advice.

Cheers!
The S9 doesn't contain the official cgminer so you're asking for support in the wrong place. Nonetheless the S9 isn't capable of solo mining by itself; you'll need to run pool software such as ckpool or if you want the level of customisation you're talking about you're going to have to write software yourself.


Thanks for the response. 

Is there more appropriate hardware that you might recommend?

Sorry, the command should be:

bfgminer -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -u username -p USerpass1 --stratum-port 3333


Then your S9 should connect. I just tested it with my S9 and it works as expected.

Post a pic of your miner config page (you can blur or black out the secret stuff)

I believe the 3 proxies are the one S9 testing if the backup pools are live.

You could check to make sure the port is open and forwarding correctly, and nothing is blocking it. For example, a firewall isn't dropping the connections


Cool..

Here's the config:

Try with the command:

bfgminer -o http://192.168.1.193:8332 -u username -p userpass --stratum-port=3333


Then, in your S9 config, type:

mynetwork.net:3333
username
userpass

(no http or even stratum+tcp)



trying on just one S9....

Code:
\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64>bfgminer -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -u username
g -p USerpass1 --stratum-port=3333

Hi,
I'm trying to solo mine on 2 Bitmain S9's, using BFGMiner.
Do we have to compile BFGMiner, or can we just use the exe provided ?
Cheers,

Dan
S9 isn't supported yet. Ask them to send me docs & sample.

In the meantime, you could run BFGMiner as a stratum proxy on another PC.


Hi Luke,

Thanks for the reply.


Forgive me, I don't fully understand the line, i.e. running BFGMiner as a stratum proxy on another PC.

My goal is to setup a miner with a full node; i.e. I want to be able to add my own transaction to the candidate block being worked on by the S9.   (I also understand that the probability of finding a block that would include our added transaction is slim-to-none; I just want to do it - see it work..)  
If it also means alottery ticket, on the side, then woohoo.

Is the S9 a pool-only device ?

Thanks,

Cheers!

Dan


P.S.  It did work at one point :  https://i.imgur.com/JxYUEyt.png
Any idea?
PXY = Proxy

Same setup should work... What's your issue?


Encouraging...

S9 is offsite so I pointed the URL to
http://mynetwork.net:3333
   and the backup to
   stratum+tcp://mynetwork.net:3333


I opened port 3333 on mynetwork.net to allow 3333 traffic from the off-site's ip


On my pc, I run bitcoind with
Code:
txindex=1
server=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=USerpass1
rpcport=8332
rpcconnect=127.0.0.1
gen=0

then run:

Code:
C:\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64>bfgminer -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -u username -p USerpass1 --stratum-port=3333 -S bitmain:auto --set btm:model=S9 --no-longpoll

Why are you using these switches:

-S bitmain:auto --set btm:model=S9 --no-longpoll



The first two because I dunno what I'm doing and thought it might helpful to recognize the S9;  and longpoll because I read somewhere it had to do with pools, and to use it if I want to mine solo - I may have been tired..but it stayed there with every new attempt..

I posted to its forum and I was told that S9's are not supported...
Thanks

My questions as well.
The s9's are stand-alone miners with their own controllers and BMminer miner software (Bitmains ripped off version of cgminer).
So,
a. Why on earth would you want to try and re-invent the wheel by using a different controller/software?
b. How did you write a driver to interface between the s9 hash boards and BFGminer?


Let me try to answer a and b  :

S9 is offsite so I pointed the URL to
http://mynetwork.net:3333
   and the backup to
   stratum+tcp://mynetwork.net:3333


I opened port 3333 on mynetwork.net to allow 3333 traffic from the off-site's ip


On my pc, I run bitcoind with -server in the config, along with
Code:
txindex=1
server=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=USerpass1
rpcport=8332
rpcconnect=127.0.0.1
gen=0

On that same pc, I run an utter hack, using my palms to type:

Code:
C:\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64\bfgminer-5.4.2-win64>bfgminer -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -u username -p USerpass1 --stratum-port=3333 -S bitmain:auto --set btm:model=S9 --no-longpoll

and get

Ok - Power properly done.

      ...with worker1 and worker2 in the second fields; arbitrary passwords in 3rd field


Network is ok  - (I'm pretty sure)  - allowed TCP port 3333 by ip on FW


Now:

bfgminer -o http://localhost:8332 -u username -p userpass --http-port=3333 -S bitmain:auto --no-longpoll --no-stratum

I read somewhere that stratum was for pools, i.e. not solo... but at least they're showing up...



Any ideas?

220V dual setup complete !




(That's all my friend Phil btw..)




Still having connection issue tho

Netstat shows

TCP    192.168.1.xxx:3333     84.39.112.56:44543     ESTABLISHED


so it *is* connected to the machine running BFGMiner,
but slushpool (listed in the S9 backup URL) keeps on hashing at 14 Th/s
 
I'll keep hacking away and come back here.



BTW, do we have to *compile* BFGMiner or can we just use the provided exe?




Thanks !

Yes, but maybe I missed something - I understood the main takeaway to be to not run more than 1 S9 per circuit breaker...


The machine is running, and slush reports more 13.5 Th/s for last couple days..


If we don't put anyting between the bitmain PSU (APW3++ PSU 1600W)  and the wall, are we heading for trouble?    Can this really also be the cause of BCGMiner not working with the S9 anymore?

110..

I was able to properly setup the network and both configs (BFGMiner and bitcoind) in large part thanks to *your older post I might add, and actually did some mining for at least a few hours, so the network has got to be ok..

(if anyone is interested I can post a diagram of the network setup I put together from the various posts)




For the power, we blew up 2 surge protectors at the very beginning, so we are doing without for now... I'm starting to think this may have been a bad idea.. do you think that's the issue?   if so, why is it working fine with slush for the past few days 24/7...?

Hi,

I was finally able to plug an S9 in after what seems like a long, long time waiting.

I want to mine on the edge, so to speak, i.e. solo, in order to better understand bitcoin at every level, including as much control as possible, including adding transactions on the fly.   



After perusing this forum, am I to understand that as of today in Jan 2018 it is not possible to provide the proxy needed between my bitcoind and the S9?



BFGminer seems to only support S1-S5;  I tried BFGMiner and it worked fine at the start.  I left it as is, but the next morning I saw it had stopped.

Restarting now yields PXY 0 : and 0's all across


It's weird because I know it's connecting to the S9 because the slushpool (backup #1) shows a degradation in hashrate until it goes completely offline - BFGMiner takes control of the S9 away from the pool.  After waiting a few more minutes, slush is 100% dead and BFGMiner shows PXY0 as SICK, and then DEAD.     


The behavior is the same on both Windows and Ubuntu.



Should I stop looking for a solution? 


Cheers!
