Hello,

I am completely new to this.  I got a miner running using rcpminer-cpu.exe with slush's pool.  When I log into slush's pool website it has all zeros for the worker it shows all 0's for Found blocks, Current shares, etc.  But my miner is really slow, so I thought that it might take some time before I see any results.

Then I tried running it with the wrong password - I wanted to see what the "wrong password" error is.  To my surprise it worked just fine.  Then I tried running it with the wrong worker name.  It still runs.  Then I tried with the wrong user name and it still runs. 

Why does it work with wrong user ID and password?  When I put the correct user id and password how do I know that I am getting credit for the work being done?

Thanks in advanced
Mike

You wont. Check in workers section when your miner submitted last share to be sure your shares will get credited Smiley
