    @ThatDudeThere Based on your comments in other threads, what miner/OS are you using — Genoil's ethminer, EthOS, AlethOne, linux, windows...?

    If ethminer, you need the executable command to start, from the directory that it's in:

    ethminer.exe --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://......
    or
    ./ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://......

    I'm all over asking about different software because I couldn't get anything to work. I did finally get AlethZero/turtle to work, but I have questions on how to use it. It's been mining all night, but I have no idea what M/H I'm at or how far along the block is. This mining stuff is so hard to learn because the "instructions" that I can find are all super vague, and there are no videos that I know of.

    Edit: also I have no idea if I'm mining solo or in a pool...or what pool I'm in.
    I'm all for helping someone as lord knows I've asked others for help myself, but please at least take time to educate yourself on how things work.

    Honestly ETH is really not that hard to get setup and working, it just takes a little education on the front end by the person sitting behind the keyboard.

    Here are the simplest instructions that someone will ever give you. If you can't start mining ETH based on this, please move on to something that's more on your learning curve. Sorry to sound harsh, but it get's difficult to answer the same question over and over again 20+ times a week:

    Generate Wallet:
    Goto https://www.myetherwallet.com/ and generate a wallet. If you choose to enter a password, WRITE IT DOWN!!! Print this page out or copy and paste everything into notepad or a Word document and save it.

    After you create a wallet, click the "Send Transaction" link on the same page and enter your public or private key. If it loads your wallet then you know it's working.

    Next step:
    Download the ethereum miner from step 8 via the following link and install it:
    https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/guides/how-to-mine-ethereum/

    Next step:
    Download eth-proxy from the following link:
    http://ethermine.org/downloads/eth-proxy-win-em.zip (Windows Download)

    Next step:
    Once eth-proxy has downloaded, use 7zip to extract it. If you don't have 7zip installed, you can download it here:
    http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1514-x64.msi

    Next step:
    Once everything is downloaded and extracted, edit the eth-proxy.conf in the Eth-Proxy folder using Notepad.

    # Host and port for your workers
    HOST = "0.0.0.0" <- Change to 127.0.0.1
    PORT = 8080

    # Coin address where money goes
    WALLET = "0xea7263feb7d8a8ab0a11eedd8f1ce04412ab0820" <- change to the wallet address that you generated using myethwallet.com. It should start with 0x

    # To donate please use wallet "0xea7263feb7d8a8ab0a11eedd8f1ce04412ab0820"

    # It's useful for individually monitoring and statistic
    ENABLE_WORKER_ID = False <- Change to True if you want individual worker names.

    # On DwarfPool you have option to monitor your workers via email.
    # If WORKER_ID is enabled, you can monitor every worker/rig separately.
    MONITORING = False <- change to True if you want email alerts when workers go down
    MONITORING_EMAIL = "" <- enter the email address where you want emails sent when workers go down.

    # Main pool
    POOL_HOST = "us1.ethermine.org" <- enter the pool address for the pool you want to mine on
    POOL_PORT = 4444 <- enter port number for the pool you want to use

    # Failover pool
    POOL_FAILOVER_ENABLE = True

    POOL_HOST_FAILOVER1 = "us2.ethermine.org" <- failover pool 1
    POOL_PORT_FAILOVER1 = 4444

    POOL_HOST_FAILOVER2 = "eth-us.dwarfpool.com" <- failover pool 2
    POOL_PORT_FAILOVER2 = 8008

    POOL_HOST_FAILOVER3 = "eth-us2.dwarfpool.com" <- failover pool 3
    POOL_PORT_FAILOVER3 = 8008�

    After done editing this file, SAVE IT

    Double click the eth-proxy.exe file and it should launch eth-proxy

    Next step:
    Open a command prompt and type the following:
    cd \ "press enter"
    cd prog "press tab" then "press enter"
    cd eth "press tab" then "press enter"
    cd rel "press tab" then "press enter"
    Enter this command to start mining. Enter you worker name where it says "enter customer rig name here"

    ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/"enter customer rig name here" --cl-global-work 16384 "press enter"

    You will be mining at this point to the pool that you defined in the eth-proxy.config

    This whole process should take you no longer than 10minutes to get up and running...</p>

    Hi Buddy,

    You did a fantastic job clarifying the confusion for windows users.

    I am new and mining on ethos 1.2.7 with nanopool using claymore. I am kinda happy with it.

    I heard ethermine pool is better than nanopool. i would like to give it a try.

    I want to single & dual mine with ethermine pool (ETH+DCR/ETH+SIA/...)
    I have 6x MSI rx580 gaming x 8gb.

    Whoever send me a functional local.conf and claymore.stub.conf "I will donate ETH".
    I am very honest and generous guy.

    Everybody is doing a great job helping each other. I will definitely do the same once i have enough knowledge.

    Thank you

    Looks like ethermine.org stats reporting is down. Anyone has th same issue?
  • DimitiiDimitii Member Posts: 1
    Hello, a couple of times sent to the mail fake sites such as blockchain.info and cryptonator.com. I found a browser plug-in with a site ranking check on one forum ... Link
    can anyone come in handy)))

    Is anyone else noticing the mayor delay in hashes being processed in payouts?

    When i look in my Shares stats, if i'm correct, the thicker blue lines represent the payed out hashes, the thinner lines represent the not-yet paid shares.

    When i first started mining on Ethermine a few weeks ago, the processing lagged 2-3 hours after the current time. However, since about a week payout processing is lagging about 19 hours! What's going on? Why is processing the shares taking so long? Does anyone else has this problem?

    Hi , i posted this already in the mining forum but i got no answer so far. Please help me with this

    So i mine on ethermine and for a while everything went well, and decided to make a separate miner.I bought all the neccesarry equipment motherboard, cpu etc. and after puting it together, i went to a friend to help me with all the necessary instalations for the operating system.We installed windows 7 with all the necessary drivers.I copied the claymoreminer folder with all the settings from my other HDD to the new SSD.In my friends house claymoreminer connected to pool and it worked just as it worked on the old miner.So i took it home and decided to install it there.

    In my home i have 2 wireless routers.One is at the ground floor and a second one is a the first floor.I bought a lan cable and wanted to connect the wireless router at the first floor with the miner through the lan cable.So i put the miner near the router and connected it with the cable.

    I established a new connection and internet works now on the miner.I also installed Teamviewer to remotelly access it from my main station.
    The problem is claymoreminer doesn't connect to ethermine anymore.I can'f figure it out why.At my friends house the miner was also connected with the cable to a wireless router.Was almost the same setting and it worked and here at my home it doesn't.

    I get this message in the claymoreminer:

    ETH:Stratum - connecting to 'eu1.ethermine.org' <93.115.31.250> port 4444
    Stratum - Cannot connect to eu1.ethermine.org:4444
    Stratum - Failed to connect, retry in 20 sec....

    I tried to change address to US and Asia, and also change the port to 14444, 3333 etc.And everything gives the same result.
    Please help me i can't seem to figure this problem out.

    L.E:Just tried to connect to nanopool and i get the same error as on ethermine.

    What is wrong?Could my internet be the problem?Its is weird because internet work ok.
    Could the fact that i connected the miner with a cable to the wireless router somehow block the connection to the pools?

    I mention that i mined with no problem on the other miner on wireless connection.
    What should i do ?what should i try or test to see where lies the problem?

    it's the wireless connection and the new router. Recently stumbled on that problem, when i had to change the home network...net is going, like browsing and torrents, but when you run claymore and it won't connect...

    I have one problem with my rig. I keep getting this error: “Socket was closed remotely (by pool) eth connection lost retry in 20 sec…” My rig is on cable not wifi. It works for 20h straigth but then i keep getting this errors and it cant connect for 1-2h. After that, when it finaly connects it works for 20-22h straight.

    Why is this happening?
  • SiilaSiila Member Posts: 35
    Since around Block 4914400, it seem we gain less Ether as we can see on thoses screen shot:









    Is it related to what happen 14 hours ago on asia server?



    Will it back to normal & when? (Or is it the new normal?)

    Tank you for any answer, have a great day :)

    Before you get hardware make sure you have Ethereum mining software, an Ether mining pool, and an Ethereum hardware wallet for secure storage of Ether. If you just want Ether then just buy Ethereum. Mining has a lot of setup costs and some technical knowledge is required.

    stale share started rocketing today
    almost every miner has 10%+ stale shares
    if i remember right ethermine stopped paying stale shares?
    anyone help me with this

    either way for now i gotta move hash to a place where im not getting so many stale shares
    cant afford the potential loss when the market is like it is
  • miningbraminingbra Member Posts: 5
    Yup, i'm having a stale shares rocketing too, around 10% almost. I thought it was just my rig problem, but everything is working fine. Does anyone know what's wrong with the pool?
  • SiilaSiila Member Posts: 35
    Graphical income & stale share rate is back to normal on my side, 3% vs 5-6%. Good Job ! ;)
