Tutorial for setting up

  • Step1: Connect the power cable and ethernet cord to the miner.
  • Step 2: Find the IP of the miner. Refer to this article to find the IP of the miner: How to scan out the configuration IP address of the miner
  • Step 3:Access the miner status page. Open your Internet browser, type in the IP address, and log in. Default account and password are: root

  • Step4:Change the pool address and miner account. Click “Configuration -> CGMiner Configuration” to enter the configuration page and make the following changes:
    • Pool 1: pool address
    • Pool 1 worker: (refer to the pool instructions)
    • Pool 1 password: any password
  • Step 5:Change the IP address (For mining farms. You don’t need to do this step if for home mining. ). Access the “Configuration -> Interfaces” page and click “edit” to set the IP address as static. Settings done. Go back to “Status/CGMiner Status”.
