Strange event in ASIC logfile. A phantom pool?

Hi,
Great piece of software by the way. I've pulled it down with github to play with - but,

Running it into my slushpool account, and it works fine. But I keep getting this in the log file

[2016-05-13 14:41:37] Stratum connect failed to pool 1: Failed connect to 127.0.0.1:8332; Connection refused

I'm using a Bitmain S1 USB device, and it's running fine at 1.54Gh. Fine to play with. I know it's going to take about umpteen thousand years to mine one coin - but I'm just fiddling with this because it's interesting.

Is there a command line option to perhaps turn off it's desire to look at that - non-existant pool?

Is there any chance that the latest bfgminer and cgminer will be maybe incorporated into the build as well? It could probably be done from a command line build, if not from the XCode IDE.

But anyway, again, I'm scratching my head as to why this message is popping up about every 5 or 6 cycles.

Thanks if you have any ideas . if you are still there?

cheers
Robert

  • That's peculiar, it looks as though it's set up for solo mining. I couldn't replicate the issue. What does your config file look like? (Edit config file manually in the window preference panel) Did 127.0.0.1:8332 get in there somehow? And which window are you mining in?

    MacMiner has the latest versions of cgminer and bfgminer included, and I've updated the Github to include them there as well.
  • Thanks for getting back, This is the bfgurl.conf file
    {
    "pools" : [
    {
    "url" : "stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333",
    "user" : "ShanghaiTimes.worker1",
    "pass" : "***"
    }
    ]

    }

    I wonder if MacMiner is caching something somewhere.?
    It's still mining, on the FPGA/ASIC Miner, but it shows in the log of both this one, and the GPU miner as well. So it's picking it up somewhere, and I can't for the life of me find out where.
    I'll keep looking....
  • You could try putting --no-default-config in the manual flags - perhaps bfgminer has generated a config file somewhere else on your system?
  • Ok, tried that. Sorry, no good. Tomorrow, I'll remove MacMiner completely from the system, including the Application Support directory stuff, clean it all up, then reboot, then reinstall it, and try again ;-) Very strange.
  • Ok, its working.
    Thanks a lot for the help.
    I deleted all the old stuff, re-downloaded MacMiner - and set up the config file where it wanted it, and it's working with no strange errors.
