Hi, complete newbie here, noob, whatever....anywho, I have 3 MLD-2 and i would like to know how to configure to only use one per coin if so desired.

 -S MLD:All --set MLD:clock=756
pause

So in other words, if I just wanted to start one, what would I put in place of "All" after MLD:

any help would be greatly appreciated.

you need 3 different .bat files, one for each coin. in place of the "All" you would put the MLD# you want to use for that coin.

Go the easy route, download Multiminer, then when you install it, find the folder it's installed in, go in the Miners folder, there is a BFGminer folder in there, delete the contents, replace with the BFGminer you downloaded for the MLD's.

That app lets you independently control your devices so you can set then to do different coins or the same coins. Nice user interface too.
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Hello
I am new here and have a question about the BFGMINER.
Have it installed on my Raspberry Pi according to the instructions on page 1 and it works great
but how can you start it with autostart?

Hi all!
Just got my Moonlander 2.
Windows 10 Pro, installed drivers, and fired up BFGminer using the .bat file.
Yes, I realize I was test was mining for jstefanop.1 Smiley

Since I am totally new to BFGminer and this stick I am learning as much as I can.  Lots to read and learn but it's fun.
I have been GPU mining XMR on nanopool and minergate using XMR-stak.  Pretty easy to understand.  BFGMiner is much more complicated with all the info it provides.

So here is my test screen shot.  How does it look?  Is everything going OK?
Any tips for me?

Thanks all!

Thanks....  Setting up my litecoin wallet now.  Damn it's going to be a long time to sync Sad

A question please.

I have been mining XMR (Monero) on Nanopool and in the command line for the pool your provide your wallet address.  I never needed to "make an account" on the pool. It made one for me using my wallet address.

Seems Scrypt pools are different in that you have to make an account?  And you do not use a wallet address in the BFGminer command line?
Is this true for all Scrypt pools?

Sorry for the n00b questions.

No. It depends on what 'front end' the pool is using and how they have it set up. There are some pools for LTC I have either looked at or mined on that did not require registration and only your wallet address.

I have recently set up a pool for DGB (could easily be for any other coin) that requires no log in and only a wallet address for username. The front end on that pool is using CoiniumServ as the stratum interface.

I am now doing a lot of study on what Scrypt coin to mine....  That is always the hard part for me.
I tend to want to look at something with low difficulty but then I see things like Einsteinium, it's not worth mining.
What is the pool you setup?
I will check what to mine and check out DGB.

Thanks!

Maybe I'm dumb, but is there an easy way to tell which device is which?

In BFGminer, I have the list of 6 devices, MLD 0 - 5. Occasionally I'll get a message of "MLD 5: ASIC has stopped hashing, attempting to restart".

I know it's because of power issues.

But I can't seem to isolate the problem one.

I've tried to disable it through the "manage devices" menu, but all devices keep flashing leds.

Is there some trick to figure it out?

Only way is to match the serial number in bfgminer to the device. The disable function is currently not implemented in the driver, but it will be in the next release.

I ordered and received 2 Moonlander 2s from asicpuppy. One of them works fine but the other seems to be dead on arrival. No matter how I connect it to my pc, the miner software will not detect the device. I reached out to asicpuppy support but haven't received any response. Anyone else have experiences with asicpuppy's support that can help? Thanks!

Does it show up at all under your device manager? Does the yellow or red led flash at all when you start up bfgminer?

It is not prime time and was setup just so i could learn. not for production per say.

To the other question above yours. No, only scrypt no other algorithm even those that are close in name.

Best way to determine the most profitable coin at any given moment, that I have found is:

What To Mine

Oh! I was wondering about that serial number.

Where can I find the number on the board? Or how do they relate?

Best way is to number the moonlanders by hand on the stick. Put them 1 by 1 in the usb port and read out the serial with bfgminer. Now you can track them down..

It does show up under device manager. The D2 led stays on and no other led flashes when bfgminer is on.

So another question...I have three MLD2 and I need a good powered USB to use with them, can anyone recommend one they have gotten and worked, the ones I have tried so far have all stopped working, guessing due to low power....got a USB riser card as well to try and even that would not work and it was also powered.
Thanks
