I am trying to attempt solo mining (for fun) and can’t quite seem to get the Litecoin-qt Wallet setup properly to work. I created the proper .conf file and loaded my personal allow IP and port. However, when I try to connect I am getting 404 errors from minerd, but trying to connect to the server through a browser returns a JSON error. (So, it’s working and serving, but minerd isn’t connecting properly?)
Here is my conf file:
I am using: minerd -a scrypt -r 1 -t 4 -s 6 -o http://127.0.0.1:9332 -O username:password
Unfortunately, my output is this:
[2017-12-09 10:51:37] 4 miner threads started, using ‘scrypt’ algorithm.
[2017-12-09 10:51:37] HTTP request failed: The requested URL returned error: 404
[2017-12-09 10:51:37] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds
I check netstat, for some reason the port is showing like this:
[::]:9332 (with no IP)
Any helpful tips or tricks to get this working for me? I’m not sure what else to do and everything matches all of the documents I can find online.
Before anyone suggests it, I’m not interested in pool mining. Nor am I too serious about doing this for money, I was just playing around with it and documenting it, but I can’t stand not knowing how to do something and I’d like to figure this out! Thank you so much for any advice that I get.
