I've created a domain for my Zcash stratum pool ninjapool.org Port 3357 Fee is set at 0%
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool ninjapool.org:3357 -zwal taddress.workername -zpsw x
I've added a ssl certificate to the nginx configuration by using this configuration ./configure --prefix=/home/user/nginx --add-module=/home/user/ZEC/ngxrest --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_v2_module
I think there are still things to resolve like the difficulty. If you have any pointers, please do share. Currently there is over 5500 hash/s, need a bit more to find a block.
Thank you. I don't have much time, I'm supposed to be writing papers, but find this much more interesting. To get a free SSL cert (must be renewed every 60-90 days) I used this guide.
In our case, since we installed nginx to our home user directory the server block file is not /etc/nginx/sites-available/default, but rather /home/user/nginx/conf/nginx.conf
the guide references the web root as being /var/www/html, but in our case it should be /home/user/nginx/html Other key things is that we will need to add a snippets directory with the following files inside it: /home/user/nginx/conf/snippets sudo nano /home/user/nginx/conf/snippets/ssl-example.com.conf sudo nano /home/user/nginx/conf/snippets/ssl-params.conf
And to test the nginx.conf you do not need to start or stop the service, goto /home/user/nginx/sbin/ and run sudo ./nginx -t
I'd have to look at things more, but we may want to restrict read/write permissions on some of the folders and files to only the owner. The node and daemons might be vulnerable to being hacked.
Ok, help me understand why these are not p2pool. 1 there are lots of p2p files/code in these pool. aren't those p2pool? 2 they are running the zcash node which is peer to peer, correct? 3 node shows a peer count. 4 or is it very similar to a p2pool? 4 or did I just set up zcash for this pool wrong?
"p2p" systems are often used in \database schemes such as paxos or riak. eXtremal just used a custom lib called "p2p" to connect the database with "clients" or pools (zcash, xmr, eth,...)
This is a nice way to allow multiple pools to write concurrently to the same db as well perhaps easily distribute a cluster for pool failover on the server. (something I have struggled with on zogpool). But I am uncertain how eXtremal deploys his "frontends"
As for your questions I would say good old fashion research into p2p systems is a good start.
Is it me or the guide from the first post does not contain information on how to create the zcash.conf file? zcashd didn't would just exit immediately after starting, until I created the ~./zcash/zcash.conf file Or maybe I did something wrong in the previous steps?
OK so after a few hours of hassle I got everything up and working, following your guide + the zcash.conf file creation. The only problem is I don't receive any jobs from the pool. Tried connecting with claymore to 192.168.x.y:19999, it says it connected but does not receive any jobs, after a while it says job timeout. Also in the pool screen i get 0 workers 0 gpus etc. HELP
