Advanced Mining Setup

There are generally 3 types of miners. The complexity of the configuration task depends on the mining hardware and platform used. We will cover the most common cases below:

   Standalone ASIC based miner with Stratum protocol
   ASIC based miner connected to your PC or some other dedicated machine
   Standalone ASIC based miner with Getwork protocol support only

2.1 Standalone ASIC based miner with Stratum Protocol Support

This is the most easy setup as such devices usually have a user interface of some kind and you are only required to specify server url(s), username and password.

2.2 ASIC Based Miner Connected to Your PC and Other Dedicated Machines

In this case, you need a mining software installed on your computer. We recommend using CGminer or BFGminer

Step by step tutorial on how to setup these tools is available here, however, the basic setup steps are below.
CGminer on Windows:

   Press WIN + R, enter 'CMD' and press Enter
   Enter following command and press Enter:

On windows, CGminer may not recognize your mining hardware right ahead and ask you to install WinUSB drivers. This process is covered in our aforementioned tutorial
CGminer on Linux and Mac OS:

cd path/to/your/Cgminer_Folder

Other mining software like cpuminer, rpcminer, minerd, and diablominer is currently not supported because of lack of support for the Stratum mining protocol.

2.3 Standalone ASIC based miner with Getwork Protocol Support Only

The getwork protocol is now considered obsolete. However, you can still use such mining hardware with our pool through the use of Stratum proxy. We provide this as a free software for our miners.
