Stratum authentication failed

Post by rent » Mon Jan 10, 2022 10:03 pm


Getting an authentication failed error on any algorithm, for example:

-a scrypt -o stratum+tcp:// -u [username] -p a=scrypt

Checked firewall and I can run against another pooling site. I set up my prohashing account today. Could that be the issue? THanks!

The url argument is wrong. Should only have stratum the first time and not after the "//". If it still doesn't work after removing that try just running the prohashing url.

The worker configurator page has a disclaimer regarding this in the top of the page.
