I need to setup Zcash in a private network, is it supported?
Check out regtest mode https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-examples#regtest-mode (same as Bitcoin). Is that what you’re after?
Thanks for the information. Also on which port does the regtest network runs? Is it same as that for testnet, i.e 18232 for testnet RPC
I think 18344 for zcashd and 18232 for RPC (I just ran
lsof -i | grep LISTEN) If in doubt just set the -port config option and/or -rpcport option in zcash.conf.
(edited this as I had actually manually specified rpcport in zcash.conf when I first answered)
is this to build a asic private pool?
No, the base Zcashd software does not have the code to run or connect to a mining pool.
