Long time lurker who finally decided to set up my own p2pool node after receiving my mining gear. I've read though this thread a few times (well, most of it!) but I have a few questions so maybe someone can enlighten me? I'm running Ubuntu Server 64bit + 32GB RAM with the Xfce4 desktop environment (my command line skills aren't up to complete headless operation yet I'm afraid) & have successfully installed all wallets for merge mining with the help of this excellent thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=651819.0
- (NMC, DVC, I0C, HUC, UNO, GRP & FSC - mainly for my own education). I have p2pool up & running without errors in the console & all 7 coins reporting the "got new merge mining work" - not bad for a noob!
While setting up port forwarding on my router, I noticed some conflicting views on some of the coins ports to forward, namely NMC & DVC:
Coin / Listen Port / RPC Port
Bitcoin: 8333 / 8332
Devcoin: 6334 / 6333
Fusioncoin: 8492 / 18491
Huntercoin: 8398 / 8399
i0coin: 7337 / 7338
iXcoin: 8337 / 8338
namecoin: 8334 / 7333
According to the above mentioned thread, NMC uses RPC port 7333, but I've seen other sites quoting port 8336 (example: http://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency/coins/namecoin & http://www.cryptocoinsrevolution.com/hashing-algorithm-namecoin.php#.VWbdV-Z3C70
), & DVC is quoted as both ports being different to the above, namely 52333 port & 52332 rpc (example: http://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency/coins/devcoin
), & here it's different again 63333 port & 53333 rpc (example: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/120-devcoin-dvc-information/) There seems to be a lot of misinformation regarding ports for different coins across different websites, So I guess my question is, are the ports for p2pool different in some way?
Also, now that UNO is merge mined, am I right to use ports 65534 port & 65535 rpc? Any clarification regarding this would be very much appreciated.
I also have a question about running p2pool with pypy. I have followed this quick how-to from an earlier post:
However, I get error messages about permissions advising me to use the sudo -H flag when installing, resulting in failure. Are all the above commands done with sudo or exactly as written? My OS installation is a fresh install without any changes from standard & everything I've installed for p2pool including the different wallets has gone smoothly, so I've no idea as to why pypy is failing to install.......
Hope someone can clarify, thanks for reading
