Unable to connect Antminer R4 for solo mining LCC

Postby BoogerHook » Mon Apr 01, 2019 12:16 am

I can't seem to get my antminer to connect to mine LitecoinCash. Every time I attempt a coin specific connection for LCC I receive the failure "Authorization failed because the static coin/algorithm combination is in error."
    I have been able to connect fine to solo mine other coins. So far today c=acoin, c=titcoin, c=stronghandcoin, and c=digibyte have all worked fine as password arguments.
    The error reproduces on other miners when connecting with the c=litecoincash argument.
    The actual password arguments are: c=litecoincash m=solo n=antminer_r4_solo p=.115 w=800
    I have tried to connect both on ports 3335 and 3435

I filed a support ticket and am waiting to hear back. Any other suggestion in the mean time?

Thanks in advance!

TRY: using the proxy server to connect on: stratum+tcp://proxy.prohashing.com:443
with the password: a=sha-256 m=solo c=litecoincash n=antminer_r4_solo p=.115 w=800

See if that lets you in to mine.

No luck through the proxy server. :(
Pool shows as dead on the miner and the same error occurs.

TRY: using the proxy server to connect on: stratum+tcp://proxy.prohashing.com:443
with the password: a=sha-256 m=solo c=litecoincash n=test

what if you get rid of the excess and try it simplified.

may be an issue with either the coin or how its spelled in one of their tables.

I had considered there might be a syntax issue. Hopefully the ticket gets looked at soon. It's at about 24 hours since I last updated it with the tests I mentioned above. Will give the simplified password a shot and see if it helps.

Edit:
New error this time! I received: "Authorization failed because the static coin is not available for mining in the selected algorithm"
Progress?

Edit2: The error above is what happens when you use c=litecoin instead of c=litecoincash! I went as simple as possible with a=sha-256 c=litecoincash on the proxy server and it still would not connect. Shows the original error "Authorization failed because the static coin/algorithm combination is in error."

EDIT: Litecoin is a coin that is mined on the scrypt algo.
So that would be the error you get when you are on sha-256 trying to mine a scypt based algo coin.

What about just c=litecoincash on port 3335?
Maybe its not available for solo mining for some reason?


Wonder if the table on SHA-256 for litecoincash somehow got error corrected to litecoin which isnt on the sha-256 its on the scrypt algo.

No luck with just the c=litecoincash on port 3335 or 3435. Would have been a good day to be able to connect for solo mining too. :(

I'm in waiting mode until Steve can investigate it further I guess.
