Hi,

I am new to mining.
I downloaded the latest version of litecoin from litecoin.org.
It has option to solo mine or mine in pool.

Is solo mining feasible?
Also, which pools are recommended for litecoin, to be connected from default client?

Thanks!

I've mined at litecoinpool.org because they have pure PPS (pay-per-share). p2pool is very recommended if you have the patience to get it working.

Solo-mining is feasible, although it takes about a week to find a block with hash rate of 10kh/sec.

It's recommended to use pooler's miner, since it's a lot faster than the built-in miner in Litecoin :

I have also made a GUI for the said miner :

Yes you can mine solo if you have a good CPU and mine 24/7 tho I recommend using P2Pool.

Thanks for the inputs.
I would be mining for around 14-15 hours per day.
In that case, solo mining is not feasible, pooled mining would be better?

litecoinpool.org would be better if you mine not all the day along

Ok.. I have started mining on litecoinpool.
I see people getting from 60 to 1000+ kh/s
I am only getting 2-3 kh/s
Do I need to do anything different? Any optimizations?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

have you added these optimizations yet? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55038.0

in Windows just copy and past them to your miner folder, overwriting the old files
