FYI


I have a theory. Could you provide us with your IP address, or, if you're worried about attacks here, submit a ticket with it so I can investigate?


I don't see any authorization attempts in the logs. All I see are a bunch of these errors. Like over a hundred of them:

Code: Select all

Fatal Error: network connection lost!
Fatal Error: network connection lost!
Fatal Error: network connection lost!
do read_temp_func once...
do check_asic_reg 0x08


Just Fatal Error: network connection lost! over and over again in the logs. I don't think it's the network on my side causing the problem. Because I have 2 other miners hooked up to prohasing that don't lose their connections. They're on the same network as the S9.

I don't mind sharing my IP address. Here it is: 199.207.253.101

That's my external address.

Thanks

It's been stable for a while tonight. Like a few hours. Then I tried adding the power settings. My password line read like this for a little while:

Code: Select all

a=sha-256 p=.1438 w=1372


Then it reported into PH and lasted about a minute. Then started disconnecting. The status page on my miner showed the connection as "Dead".

I tried reverting the setting to just:

Code: Select all

a=sha-256


On the password line. But even after reverting to what I had before that worked (for a little while), the connection remains "Dead" on my miner. Tried restarting the miner. Same thing. Connection reads "Dead" on the status page.

Miner fell back to the second in line which is https://dgb-sha.theblocksfactory.com, I used them to mine Digibyte.

Then a few minutes later my PH connection came live. Registered as as SHA-256 machine at the top of the page and started displaying a coin, and calculating a hash rate. Be interesting to see if it drops off again.

It seems like it was stable on there for a while. But then it couldn't handle the power settings and that broke the connection again.

Thanks for that. I don't think the power settings are related to this issue. I think it was related to Bitcoin Cash mining. Has the issue been resolved now?

OK. It's been stable all morning. The miners are at home and I'm at work now. I'll try adding the power settings back into the password line tonight when I get home. Let's see if it stays connected once I do that. I'll let you know!

Thanks

OK, I added the power settings back into the password argument on my S9. So, now it reads:

Code: Select all

a=sha-256 p=.1438 w=1372


I'll let you know if it drops off again. Tho I suspect we're good!

Thanks

Hi Steve,

The S9 has been connected with no drops since yesterday. I added back the power settings to the password line. No disconnects since I did that.

Thanks for resolving the issue! What was the problem that was causing this?

Thanks

Hi.
the problem actually exists.
today I tried simultaneously with the L3+ to connect and S9 on one account.
L3+ works and S9 shows "Dead"...

What error are you receiving from the mining.authorize() statement in the logs?

If you're trying to mine Teacoins, a common error would be that you're submitting too many stale shares, and therefore were banned. Since there are so many miners mining Teacoins, about 98% of the shares for that coin are stale because the blocks are coming faster than network latency.

Thanks for your reply.

ok this error with stale i can imagine. Is there anyway to fix this problem?

i tried to find the mining.authorize() statement, but i'm not realy know how i can find this. In my "normal" log of the S9 i can't find anything like this.

thanks
