Hi,

I am trying to mine litecoins behind a proxy server in a windows domain environment and thus need to find a pool that accepts minerd connections on port 80. I had read somewhere that pool-x.eu accepts connections from miners on port 80 but I am having some difficulties with that.

I've set my http_proxy variable with my proxy connection details and if I get those wrong I get the expected 407 error, so I know its not that.

However when I try and kick off my miner I just get the following on both ports 80 and 8080 (with valid credentials) - the error indicates to me that I am getting through the proxy but pool-x.au is not accepting the connection?

D:\LC>minerd -r 10 -s 40 --threads 2 --url http://mine.pool-x.eu:8080/ --user myname.myminer:passwd
[2012-04-23 08:15:39] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.
[2012-04-23 08:15:40] HTTP request failed: The requested URL returned error: 403
[2012-04-23 08:15:40] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

If I try on port 8337 or 8000;
D:\LC>minerd -r 10 -s 40 --threads 2 --url http://mine.pool-x.eu:8337/ --user myname.myminer:passwd
[2012-04-23 08:21:08] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.
[2012-04-23 08:21:38] HTTP request failed: Operation timed out after 30014 milli
seconds with 0 bytes received
[2012-04-23 08:21:38] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

But I don't expect that to work as ports 8337/8000 is probably not allowed through the proxy anyway.

So I am either doing something silly or my darn computer is (quite possible since this is a windows env which is always a bad start) or something is up with the pool (which is the least likely)

Any suggestions?
Cheers

Just to verify... you have tried --url http://mine.pool-x.eu ?

Hi GTRsdk

I hadn't tried that before as assumed that by putting the port number in would duplicate this. Although with frigging windows its dangerous to assume anything logical I know. Either way tried your suggestion...

D:\LC>minerd -r 10 -s 40 --threads 2 --url http://mine.pool-x.eu --user user.miner:passwd
[2012-04-24 08:09:20] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.
[2012-04-24 08:09:50] HTTP request failed: Operation timed out after 30015 milli
seconds with 0 bytes received
[2012-04-24 08:09:50] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds
[2012-04-24 08:10:20] HTTP request failed: The requested URL returned error: 403

[2012-04-24 08:10:20] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds
[2012-04-24 08:11:08] HTTP request failed: The requested URL returned error: 403


However I have tried the following ; If I hit http://mine.pool-x.eu with Chrome (or even IE) I get an authentication request - input my miner account and I get a blank page in response which I'd expect. It just seems that the minerd gets a 403 error.

Doh!

minerd -r 10 -s 40 --threads 2 --url http://mine.pool-x.eu --user user.miner:passwd

was never going to work; syntax is either --userpass=U:P or if using --user=uname.miner then --pass=passwd is also required.

What happened with pool-x.eu?  Data on the website were frozen and cannot withdraw funds.
