Forgot to ask about this...

futurebit.local doesn't work for me. I have to use the IP address to connect to the UI. Any suggestions?

There are so many variables to this its almost impossible to troubleshoot. Depends on the device your connecting from, your network setup, router, etc etc.

At minimum you need a device that can address.local hostnames...most linux Mac/iOS, and android devices do this by default, windows I know you need to install a third party app.

Im looking at some sort of zero-configuration solution to this that will work almost anywhere, without needing to find IPs etc for a future update.

Need details on your network...this is what is most reliable currently

You NEED a password protected network, the driver for the radio on my MCU does not support open networks for some reason

Set router to non-mixed network (i.e. make sure SSID is only broadcasting a b/g wifi signal and separate N network to another SSID).
Password should be WPA2 (not mixed WPA/2)


Keep in mind if it says it failed to connect initially try a reboot, sometimes this works (just make sure you put in your password right).


BTW please keep support stuff in the support thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5081750

Shower thought for the Apollo: what's stopping me from running a moonlander on the Apollo?
It has a free USB port, miner software and it has a nice ring to it to equip the Apollo pod with a Moonlander?

Haha awesome idea, bro! Try it!  Grin Grin Grin

I already turned my apollo into security camera server with motion sensing and footage recording. All via standard USB Logitech camera Smiley

Next level challenge will be running apollo on apollo! Cheesy Grin

You could! Armv6 Binaries on git should work fine on the Apollo controller, and the board has a 3 Amp rated 5v regulator so should be able to easily power one Moonlander.

How about a usb hub with multiple moonlanders?

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Yea the Apollo controller is essentially a raspberry pie, so anything you can do on a pi you can do on this controller (minus the GPIO pins which are obviously all used to control the hashboard).

i dont have one of these but i do have moonlander 2 and the original moonlander usb sticks..
im am guaranteeing your issue is 100% user error.

oh and before you buy 20 of these, id consider just getting a cheap l3 and undervolting and underclocking it.

these were never meant to replace larger and less expensive asics.. they are for a hobby miner that just wants one or two.

Maybe if you tried to ask for help in the support thread you would figure out what your doing wrong. We have shipped hundreds of these with very few issues.

think the pools I tried on have stats update issues . I hope Apollo is total compab with all pools I tried a very low diff port pool it works fine and for usb sticks I think I know where I went wrong as I tried doin on several computers with ghekkos on them either one or other work depend which driver I updated last but also it can be usb ports and power hubs im using one thing great about Apollo I can mine without a usb driver which made it easy

all I need is a list of pools it works great on so far give-me-coins work nice with all futurebit miners I was thinking of renting it out say like on nicehash or mrr but I find too many renters on normal bit-main machines tend to throw them rigs on so high diff pools im having great arguments with renters who ripping us rig owners off but esp admins who run them trying to convince them my rig is not working when it is lol

gekko (sidehack) use different drivers than stuff made by jstefano. So, you can not use gekko and moonlander/apollo on the same computer. the usb drivers conflict with each other.

not sure what your point about pools are. you need to take it up with the pool operator if you think there are issues there. what works for me sometimes is adding #skipcbcheck#xnsub to the end (e.g. stratum+tcp://pool:7777/#skipcbcheck#xnsub). If you asked in a more friendly manner, I think you'd get more help with your mining issues. so far, you've not made a real attempt to describe your issues (we can't read your mind) nor are they pool issues.

There are some people scalping these, and people buying them for way over what my price is. Not sure why people are buying them at those prices, when we still have units left in our Batch 1 stock, and you can pay crypto on our site....
