Guide for merge mining vtc and mbl on p2pool.
1. Install and sync both wallets. After the initial sync, close the wallets.
2. Create a vertcoin.conf and place in C:\Users\Kenneth
\AppData\Roaming\Vertcoin directory. Replace Kenneth with your local account. I use a wildcard for rpcallowip, so I can mine with other pc's on the network.
3. Create a bat file to open vtc wallet. I save mine on the desktop. Adjust the path to where you installed your wallet.
vertcoin-qt.exe -server -conf=vertcoin.conf
4. Create a mobilecash.conf and place in C:\Users\Kenneth
\AppData\Roaming\Mobilecash directory. Same notes as above apply.
5. Create a bat file to open mbl wallet. I save mine on the desktop. Adjust the path to where you installed your wallet.
mobilecash-qt.exe -server -conf=mobilecash.conf
6. Setup p2pool install. This will cover the complete install from scratch.
a. Install Python 2.7 from https://www.python.org/getit/
. Please use version 2.7.9 as 2.7.10 gives errors.
b. Install Twisted for Python 2.7 from http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/Downloads
c. Install Zope.Interface from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/zope.interface/3.8.0
d. Install python win32 api from http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/files/pywin32/Build%20218/
e. Install python win32 api wmi wrapper from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/WMI/#downloads
f. Install MinGW (gcc-mingw-4.3.3-setup.exe) from https://github.com/develersrl/gccwinbinaries/releases
. Note: Make sure to check the first 3 options and 'Link with MSVCR90.DLL' during the install process.
g. Download p2pool source from https://github.com/metalicjames/p2pool-Lyra2RE
h. Extract files to a folder. During this guide I will use c:\p2pool-vtc as my path.
i. Download and extract lyra2re-hash-python to your p2pool-vtc folder from https://github.com/metalicjames/lyra2re-hash-python
j. In the Command Prompt navigate to your lyra2re-hash-python folder in p2pool-vtc directory.
k. Execute the follow command.
c:\Python27\python.exe setup.py build --compile=mingw32 install
l. In the p2pool-vtc directory create a launch bat file for p2pool. Edit to use your vtc payout address, your ip address, and your mbl username & password used in the wallet conf. I suggest to create a shortcut on your desktop for this bat file to launch p2pool.
C:\Python27\python.exe C:\p2pool-vtc\run_p2pool.py --net vertcoin -a VwV2J84P8mQggWgUv8ubCf6nJuAXHNoUce --merged http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:14414
m. Launch both your vtc and mbl bat files. After both wallets are sync, launch p2pool bat shortcut. If you did as I, these should all be on your desktop.
You should be running p2pool with merge mining now. Point your miners to the ip address of the p2pool machine, and start mining.
