This is a guide to set up solo mining for cgminer and windows 7.

Replace Litecoin with the name of the altcoin you are solo mining.
This guide assumes you have the wallet of the altcoin you are solo mining, and it is fully synced.

Solo mining with GPU on same machine as Wallet


1.

Go to start, type %appdata%\Litecoin and press the enter key. You will then be in a folder with the Litecoin app-data. You will need to create a new text document called Litecoin. Open that document, and enter this data.

rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=3333
server=1
listen=1
daemon=1

Save this, and then rename the file to Litecoin.conf. It should then be a CONF file.

2.


Start up LiteCoin-qt

3.

Go to your cgminer, and change the .bat file to have the pool be http://127.0.0.1, the username to be user, and the password to be password.

sample:

cgminer.exe -o http://127.0.0.1:3333 --scrypt -u user -p password

The port is the rpcport in you conf file, the username is your rpcuser, and the password is your rpcpassword.

Start up your cgminer, and you should be solo mining!


Solo mining with GPU on different machine as Wallet



1.

Go to start, type %appdata%\Litecoin and press the enter key. You will then be in a folder with the Litecoin app-data. You will need to create a new text document called Litecoin. Open that document, and enter this data.

rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
rpcconnect=(Internal ip of your wallet machine, 192.168.1.*)
rpcallowip=(Internal ip of your mining machine, 192.168.1.*)
rpcport=3333
server=1
listen=1
daemon=1

Save this, and then rename the file to Litecoin.conf. It should then be a CONF file.

2.


Start up LiteCoin-qt

3.

Go to your cgminer, and change the .bat file to have the pool be http://127.0.0.1, the username to be user, and the password to be password.

sample:

cgminer.exe -o http://(Internal ip of your wallet machine, 192.168.1.*):3333 --scrypt -u user -p password

The port is the rpcport in you conf file, the username is your rpcuser, and the password is your rpcpassword.

Start up your cgminer, and you should be solo mining!

Very nice explanation.


Question1: And how to solo mine with GPU in the machine with wallet, AND other GPU in different machine? Possible?

Thanks.

It is possible to do that. You would have to treat the GPU on the same machine like it is on an external machine. So you would have to set cgminer on the same machine to connect to 192.168.1.*, the same as the other machine.

thanks for this guide I am still waiting for my first rig

You're welcome!   Wink

Can't put this to work.

I can ping the pc with the wallet, and it's ok, I have in the pc with the wallet, a conf file with "rpcallowip=192.168.1.*"

I've tried also "rpcallowip=*" and nothing

In a different pc I try to connect using in the conf file:

"http://192.168.1.*:rpcport in the wallet conf",
"user" : "username",
"pass" : "password"

pc with wallet: win8
pc with gpu: win7

Can anyone give his advice how to solomine with the wallet in other pc?

I would check windows firewall on pc with wallet. Also, when you have 192.168.1.*, I assume you replaced the * with the end of your LAN ip?

ive done everything you said but im not sure if its working.

when i start up the miner it starts off saying, no suitable long-poll found for http://127.0.0.1:22531
then it carries on, network diff set to 0 ~ new block detected on network.

literally just now had a block accepted.

ive received some coins and now its stopped and given me options and said debug window enabled  Huh one option was restart cgminer so i have done that so now its giving all the thread hashes like when you cpu mine. is this still working as it looks like the accepted shares have stopped going up.  Huh

just wanted to know as im new to solo mining, how does the network know where to send the coins as usually in a pool you add your wallet address.

any advice would be greatful.  Cheesy
