Hi everyone,
New here & trying to get my Windows 7 64 mining rig set up. I followed the tutorial listed here:
https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/guides/how-to-mine-ethereum/

However when I run geth, I get the following console output, and geth stays in this state permanently:


C:\>geth --rpc

I0228 19:31:13.489070 6068 server.go:311] Starting Server

Steps I've taken so far to debug:
-Turned off windows & router firewalls - same result
-Connected my computer directly to my cable modem bypassing router entirely - same result
-Run with --verbosity 3 - doesn't yield any more log msgs
-Tried specifying port #. I've tried all kinds of ports, from 80 to others
-Opened up all ports in router
-Tried downloading older versions of geth, same results

So connecting directly to the modem with windows firewalls off gives me the same result. I found a couple of similar issues online, but it seems those people just had port forwarding issues that resolved easily.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,
