I hope you can move this to the correct thread>
Start with the end in mind- this is my goal-
"Stratum Servers: nl1.ghash.io:3334. us1.ghash.io:3333. Please use -o stratum+tcp://nl1.ghash.io:3334 in your command line. You should name
your workers xxxxxxxx.<WORKER_ID> (e.g. xxxxxxxx.worker1). Workers are added automatically, you can use any/empty password. The minimum stratum
difficulty is 16. Support: firstname.lastname@example.org
To this end I have acquired a new style 10Ghs blade and properly outfitted it in a case donated from a socket7 pc. I have BCGminer and mining_proxy.exe
running (but with errors.) I tried CGminer but BCGminer seemed simpler toconfigure out of the box for these blades. Any opinions on which may better
suit this situation? I guess I need to make .bat files for command line args.OK I am just figuring this out. Don't laugh. This might actually have been
easier in Linux even though I suck in Linux too. I am using Windows XPsp3.
I am having conflicts between my Blade and my Cisco DDR2200 dual bonded dsl router since they share the same default IP of 192.168.1.254. Furthermore when the blade is
on I can't surf the net. I found the reset pads already - very handy. Whenever I set the Blade IP to another address it is gone. MY Cisco IP address is
192.168.1.254 with a sunetmask of 255.255.255.0. UPnP is enabled. DHCP server is enabled with a start IP 192.168.64, end IP of 192.168.1.253, subnet mask
255.255.255.0 , and a leased time of 24 hours. (should I change that to 24000?)The router has Address Reservation (Static DHCP Assignment) which allows me to
reserve a specific IP address to a specified MAC address, such as 192.168.1.XXX to MAC YYY:YYY:YYY:YYY:YYY:YYY. Will this help me? If so what values for X and Y?
The Cisco DDR2200 also has
Incoming IP Filtering Setup
"If enable Incoming Filtering Function,all incoming IP traffic from WAN side to LAN side is BLOCKED. However, some IP traffic can be ACCEPTED by setting up filters.
Enable Filtering Function
Choose Add or Remove to configure incoming IP filters.
Filter Name VPI/VCI Protocol Source Address / Mask Source Port Dest. Address / Mask Dest. Port Remove"
And it has MAC Filtering and System Management Sessions IP Access Control enable/disable IP In/Out
And Outgoing IP Filtering Setup
By default, all outgoing IP traffic from LAN side to WAN side is ALLOWED, but some specified IP traffics can be BLOCKED by setting up filters. Choose Add or Remove
to configure outgoing IP filters.
Enable Filtering Function
Filter Name Protocol Source Address / Mask Source Port Dest. Address / Mask Dest. Port Remove
I don't have much of clue if any of this is important but I do know resolving the IP has to be first, but I don't have much clue about the rest of
the Blades configuration either. Mask - Can it stay 255.255.255.0 which is the same subnetmask as the Cisco DDR2200? 255.255.248, 255.0.0.0, and 0.0.0.0 are also taken.
Gateway - I read this is the same as the router 71.55.xxx.xxx but it does not really matter since I am using mining_proxy. WEB port?
I don't even have a clue. Should I set the Primary and Secondary DNS server the same as the router? Or am I missing something about the process? Ports? I'm clueless.
Server addresses: should they be nl1.ghash.io:3334., us1.ghash.io:3333? Lastly the user:passis xxxxxxxx._WORKER_ID:pswrd,xxxxxxxx._WORKER_ID:pswrd which I think I understand.
trying to pass command in .bat file -o stratum+tcp://nl1.ghash.io:3334
produces this error
C:\Program Files\StratumProxy\mining_proxy.exe\twisted\web\util.py:327: Deprecaiton Warning: Passing filenames or file objects to XMLFile
is deprecated since Twisted 12.1. Pass a filepath instead.it goes on to try to connect to ....nl1.ghash.io:3334:3333
What is the solution? Why is it adding :3333?Can I make a .bat file like this for bcgminer so I can skip typing in the pool and the user.worker and password? I guess I should read the forum more. I had CGminer reading blocks and I can't get BCGminer to read them. What is Icarus? I need that don't I? I guess I just need a little direction and guidance. Figuring out .bat files is a little new to me and all this precise syntax should probably have come in the box with the Blade. LOL. I am trying hard. Forum please throw me I lifeline.
