So i spend the whole day trying to setup a p2pool on windows and ubuntu. I think everything should be working now. Is it normal that it needs time until it finds some peers on the network? Because right now it is connected to none.
Also i have a raspberry pi 3 lying around and i am thinking about using it to host the p2pool server. Has anyone tried this yet? Would it be powerfull enough?
You should be OK, I ran on a PC. You need to have the wallet synced first. Keep us informed.
Yes i will definitly try it out. I just need to buy an sd card. Also the pool is now working correctly. I will try to host it 24/7 on my PC for now. It is mining anyway so i’m not really wasting electricity. But i will try to migrate it to the rpi 3 in the future.
Also are there any plans on adding a second network to the current p2pool network? Because for small miners it get’s really hard get shares now. That was the main reason why i switched to mining pool hub for a while but i prefer p2pool over a centralized mining pool. It’s just not so convenient because the hashrate got so high.
I have a few questions regarding p2pool. How exactly is it possible to change the name that is displayed on the node list? Because right now it is just showing my ip adress which isn’t helpful considering i don’t have a static ip adress. I use a DynDNS service to be able to connect to my pool.
Also why are there so many orphan shares? Around 25% of all shares are rejected. My pool behaves the same way.
How exactly is it possible to change the name that is displayed on the node list?
software tries resolve the IP address to a name using reverse DNS. If a name is found, the name is displayed, if not the IP address is shown.
Ok i didn’t even know that something like reverse DNS exists that’s why i thought you could add a name using a config file or something like that. But it makes sense. If you can resolve an ip adress you can do the opposite too. Thanks.
I have a question. Somehow i got four transactions to my wallet from p2pool even though i didn’t mined during that time. I also didn’t had any shares left i think because i didn’t got payed for hours after i stopped mining during the morning on that day. The transactions are mining rewards though. There were some people mining during that time and the payout is similar to the the payout from one of these miners but i don’t have any fees on my p2pool and even if there would be fees they would have to be really high in order to get 0.2 ftc or more. What happenend there?
The last four transactions are the mining rewards that i got:
on p2pool is shows the wallet addresses mining and the hashrate against it.
Someone could have easily just mined to your address for a bit to test their setup…I do this quite often actually when I play with P2pool
just an idea
P2Pool has stratum, i.e. you build up to the maximum reputation by accumulating shares.
When you stopped mining you would have shares outstanding, so you can still get a share of the next block found.
