What mining address?
Bitcoin is a decentralized network architecture that forwards new transactions and new blocks through nodes. The mining machines and mining pools also formed another network at the same time. This network is divided into several main parts, such as mining machines, mining pools, and wallets.
The communication protocol between the mining machine and the mining pool is stratum, which is called the mining address when presented to the backend of the mining machine. The mining machine accepts jobs from the mining pool, and the mining pool receives shares from the mining machine. Take BTC as an example.
The mining address is: stratum+tcp://cn.btc.pool.zhizhu.top:1800
What is ping?
Ping is used to determine whether the local host can successfully exchange (send and receive) data packets with another host. Based on the returned information, it can be inferred whether the operation is normal and whether the network is smooth.
The connection between the mining machine and the mining pool depends on the network, and the network status largely determines the communication between the mining machine and the mining pool. In the Windows series of operating systems, we can all use the ping command to solve routing problems in the network.
The specific operations are as follows:
1.On the computer within the same local network of the miner, enter cmd in the search box and select the "Command Prompt" tool. (Win10 system display)
2.Enter ping cn.btc.pool.zhizhu.top. (Take BTC as an example, if it is another currency, it can be changed to another currency mining address)
Enter ping cn.btc.pool.zhizhu.top in cmd and press Enter to view the "data packet" result.
If you need to ping all the time, enter ping cn.btc.pool.zhizhu.top -t in cmd, and press ctrl+c to stop.
- The domain name resolution failure is displayed as "Please check the name and try again". It usually appears when the network is disconnected or DNS resolution fails. Please check whether the network cable is connected properly.
The domain name resolution is normally displayed as "data packet: sent = x, accepted = x, lost = x (x% lost)" and other information, the loss under normal network is 0%, if you have a loss greater than 0, please You go to speedtest.cn to check the network status and contact the operator.
