Yes. I'm absolutely sure that I had set things to stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:12001 But I'm not where I can check it again. I'll do that soon though.
BTW what's the difference between port 12001 and port 17001?
Sorry that I'm still working to improve the help page.
Added some FAQ page few days ago but I still think it's not sufficient.
12001 - endpoint for scrypt algo. For experts.
17001 - scrypt algo auto switching port. Just connect and start mining!
12001 port is useful for multi-algo switch mining. This port is opened/closed as per user's settings at "My Hub Workers" and "Auto switching status"
If you prepare settings for several algo endpoints, you can change mining coin/switches at website with single click.
Yes, you don't need to deal with miner program, but server will automatically accept connection to correct algo port and coin time to time.
In theory, it is the most profitable solution for GPU miners since Multi algo switching is better for GPU.
It is powerful but needs knowledge to set up each algorithms.
17001 is for whom want just simple coin switching for only one algo. It's best for ASIC.
If you have Scrypt ASIC, it will not need to switch between algo.
Connecting to 12001 is also good, but that will need miner to set each worker's job to Scrypt. But By connecting 17001, it's all done.
This port does not deal with "My Hub Workers" page at all, so you can't change mining coin or switches on the website.
Less customization, but simple.
These 17001 like ports may be also useful with other mining software which deals multi-algo switching on their own.
We will add help page soon, with some images.
