sounds like this is your problem. put dns as your router ip. or try 8.8.8.8as dns on a compuer and see how well it connects to websites. (pinging ips will work)

Tried that. doesnt seem to change how these things behave. FWIW, the computer works fine with the routers IP as the DNS and with 8.8.8.8 as the DNS.

I'm utterly baffled here...

I've started getting the dreaded "Socket connect failed: Connection refused" error, for no apparent reason. The rig was mining just fine for the longest time (with the occasional reset, etc) via Eligius, until all of a sudden it stopped mining. Neither restarting nor resetting worked this time around.

I updated to ckolivas' latest stable firmware, opting to keep my existing settings, but I still get this output in the Cgminer API Log:

[Firmware Version] => 20130821
cgminer-70bc62c
luci-d854edc+
cgminer-openwrt-packages-800cc58
Socket connect failed: Connection refused

However, I can ping sites from Network > Diagnostic with no problems (even at each point when trying the troubleshooting methods I attempted, noted below). So the rig is definitely connecting to the Web. That's not the issue. Cgminer just doesn't seem to want to work. I'm stumped.

I've been through this thread seeking possible solutions from others who've encountered this error, and it seems like none of what worked for them wants to work for me.

Here's all that I've tried:
  • Wired the rig and my PC to a different router. It wasn't working at first, but after I fiddled with the router settings a bit (no idea what I tweaked) it started mining for about 30 seconds, then back to nil.
  • Reseated connections inside the rig, and made sure the USB connections were tight. To no avail.
  • Installed CK's latest firmware but kept existing settings/configuration. No cookie.
  • Disabled DHCP on the rig. A static IP of 192.168.1.100 was previously set and in use when it was working fine. I changed it to 192.168.1.101 to see if that helped. Nada.
  • Tried changing Cgminer config settings. I dropped frequency back down to 256, and removed everything from More Options. Fail.
  • Have Not Tried: Factory Reset (whether via backend or the hardware button). It was such a pain to set this thing up initially, I was hoping to try any other possible tips first in hopes that I wouldn't have to reset the thing after all.

I'm striking out here. Anyone care to chime in with other possible tips or things to try before I lastly resort to a full reset?

I think i have identical problem... Just today I noticed that my hash rate is 0 for last few days... I can connect to avalon, but remote I cannot fix it.. (i did numerous restarts, changed configs etc).. nothing...
Will go inspect the unit tomorrow in person (might be that some chips died again, so i'll take unit apart and see...)
Weird thing is that the fans seem to be completely off as well.. here is log. Any ideas?

I think i have identical problem... Just today I noticed that my hash rate is 0 for last few days... I can connect to avalon, but remote I cannot fix it.. (i did numerous restarts, changed configs etc).. nothing...
Will go inspect the unit tomorrow in person (might be that some chips died again, so i'll take unit apart and see...)
Weird thing is that the fans seem to be completely off as well.. here is log. Any ideas?

I'm not sure what the problem is, but I was going to say if you have an Android phone, there's an app that will send you a notification if your miner goes down. That way you can get on the case as soon as possible. It's called bitcoinium.

Also, how do you connect remotely? VNC?

I'm utterly baffled here...

I've started getting the dreaded "Socket connect failed: Connection refused" error, for no apparent reason. The rig was mining just fine for the longest time (with the occasional reset, etc) via Eligius, until all of a sudden it stopped mining. Neither restarting nor resetting worked this time around.

I updated to ckolivas' latest stable firmware, opting to keep my existing settings, but I still get this output in the Cgminer API Log:

[Firmware Version] => 20130821
cgminer-70bc62c
luci-d854edc+
cgminer-openwrt-packages-800cc58
Socket connect failed: Connection refused

However, I can ping sites from Network > Diagnostic with no problems (even at each point when trying the troubleshooting methods I attempted, noted below). So the rig is definitely connecting to the Web. That's not the issue. Cgminer just doesn't seem to want to work. I'm stumped.

I've been through this thread seeking possible solutions from others who've encountered this error, and it seems like none of what worked for them wants to work for me.

Here's all that I've tried:
  • Wired the rig and my PC to a different router. It wasn't working at first, but after I fiddled with the router settings a bit (no idea what I tweaked) it started mining for about 30 seconds, then back to nil.
  • Reseated connections inside the rig, and made sure the USB connections were tight. To no avail.
  • Installed CK's latest firmware but kept existing settings/configuration. No cookie.
  • Disabled DHCP on the rig. A static IP of 192.168.1.100 was previously set and in use when it was working fine. I changed it to 192.168.1.101 to see if that helped. Nada.
  • Tried changing Cgminer config settings. I dropped frequency back down to 256, and removed everything from More Options. Fail.
  • Have Not Tried: Factory Reset (whether via backend or the hardware button). It was such a pain to set this thing up initially, I was hoping to try any other possible tips first in hopes that I wouldn't have to reset the thing after all.

I'm striking out here. Anyone care to chime in with other possible tips or things to try before I lastly resort to a full reset?

At about the time you posted, about 9:30 Central time, lots of people lost contact with eligius.  The solution in my case was to change from mining.eligius.st  --->  stratum.mining.eligius.st

I try to be respectful and informed.

Hey guys, I posted my problem yesterday but no replies.  Sad
Today my power supply came along with 1 6pins to 8pins adapter. It's a 850w PSU.
So basically I think my avalon mini is still functioning after i screwed up the PSU, so I am attempting to power it up with a new power supply.
Here are the images I took and please help me out on how to connect them. Let me know if I anything else or this PSU will not work with the avalon mini.

In your pictures...

Provide connectors 1 and 2 with 8 pin PCIe power. Connectors 3 and 4 are 8 pin (or 2x4 pin) CPU power. They are pinned and keyed differently so you can plug them in the wrong sockets by mistake.

I'm utterly baffled here...

This is the EXACT problem I was having with one of my Avalons. Initially I was able to make it mine by changing its IP protocol from static to DHCP (so that it would get an address from my router). Dont know why that worked but it did for a few days then stopped working. I've since disconnected the two hashing modules from the controller and plugged them into another avalon thats wasnt giving me any crap.

The three that I have left working now still give me random grief though. They will either stop hashing or slow to a snails pace. All I have to do is restart cgminer and all is well though.

These things are a PITA.

I only have 1 8 pin CPU connector and 1 4 pin CPU connector. So, can I use a 4 to 8 pin adapter to make it work? Or I can just use the 4 pins and it's fine.

how do i turn on --avalon-auto on my minis? im running 0821 firmware.

what exactly does this feature do?

It constantly alters the chip frequency to maintain the best hashrate / lowest hw error %

To use enter --avalon-auto into the more options field in cgminer configuration tab.



cool thanks, ill give that a try.

i see that you have other commands entered in the 'more options' field - what are other commands for the device? if its not too much trouble could you please list out the commands and what they do so i could mess around with my unit?

real--quiet makes the device more quiet than --quiet?

if i've helped you, donations welcome: 1BwGnrqSjbfJ39mTNrvb257eUSuUP7Pfxh

The point is to get the most amount of current that you can on that board for the mining modules. It will probably work but isnt the best case scenario. Try it, give it a few hours and then see if your adapter is getting warm. If it is then its not going to work. If it isnt your probably OK.

Luke Stokes did not connect all of his power connectors, and he subsequently had a fire in his unit.

real--quiet makes the device more quiet than --quiet?

Code:
--avalon-auto       Adjust avalon overclock frequency dynamically for best hashrate
--avalon-fan <arg> Set fanspeed percentage for avalon, single value or range (default: 20-100)
--avalon-freq <arg> Set frequency range for avalon-auto, single value or range
--avalon-cutoff <arg> Set avalon overheat cut off temperature (default: 60)
--avalon-options <arg> Set avalon options baud:miners:asic:timeout:freq
--avalon-temp <arg> Set avalon target temperature (default: 50)

--real-quiet isn't a noise thing it just disables all output. It came with that already in and I've never changed it.

Mine is a batch #3 and the temperature sensors were moved so I have to use --avalon-temp and --avalon-cutoff as the defaults are too low, you shouldn't need to add them.

Is there an easy way to schedule auto restarts on these things? Be it restarting cgminer or rebooting the Avalon I dont really care. One of them was hasing away at 3ghs (yes, 3GHS) this morning. Another quit at 3AM. I reset both of them when I woke up and one of them later decided to hash at 8ghs.

These things are currently exposed to outside Dallas temps (high 50's mid 60's today) and get down to the upper 30's at night. I doubt its an ambient temp thing. The highest temp within the web interface is around 47c.

Thanks for the help guys!

The more I play with these things the clearer it is to me that they are junk. I've got two Avalons that I have to manually restart cgminer on about every 4 hours otherwise their hash rates drop to under 100 mhs. As soon as I restart cgminer they go back to their advertised speeds. Also while they are running slow the web interface is SUPER choppy.

Is there a way to force cgminer to restart itself every 6 hours or so?

Oh, all hardwired not wi-fi.

I guess I'm not totally surprised that they are shit.

you can give this a try:

1. log in to your miner via it's IP address.

2. go to the 'system' tab.

3. click in to the 'scheduled tasks' tab.

4. under the existing commands paste these commands in.

0  */4 *   *   *     /etc/init.d/cgminer restart

0  20  *   *   *     /sbin/reboot

5. what this does: have the device restart CGminer every 4 hrs (change the '4' value according to the frequency you desire) & have the device do a full reboot every 20 hrs (change the '20' value according to the frequency you desire).

please let me if this has helped you - this has fixed a lot of my issues with my minis (i have 6).

You already asked the same question and it was already answered.

So it hasn't been an hour since my last post (and last power cycle of my 4 module avalon) and here I am with the 120ghs avalon mining away at 5ghs. WTF is wrong with these things?

I'd be better off with 400 Block Eruptors.

Hi Ben,
Is this topic about http://avalon-asics.com ?
Are they real? I can't see any contact details except a webform, usually scammers do this?!
Thanks.
