Hello, POLY community!
I strongly believe that solo mining directly to the wallet should be implemented in every coin. It will help the network of the coin to be decentralized in the true meaning of that word... Fortunately in case of POLY it is possible, and here is how everyone can do it.
I do solo mining with Windows 7 both on PC with the wallet and on mining rig.
Download a QT-wallet (polytimos-qt.exe).
Create polytimos.conf file with Notepad or any other text editor in Poly's data folder. Personally I start poly wallet with the following .bat-file:
So i know where the poly's datadir is. :grinning: If you use default path, try to find it by yourself. It will improve your IT skills.
Insert next content in this file:
rpcuser=rabinovitch (your username here) rpcpassword=weneedreallygoodprezidenthereinRussia (any long and strong password here) rpcport=42518 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcallowip=192.168.0.15 (IP address of your remote rig with a lot of GPUs) daemon=1 server=1 gen=0 addnode=seed1.polytimos.net addnode=seed2.polytimos.net addnode=seed3.polytimos.net addnode=seed4.polytimos.net addnode=seed5.polytimos.net addnode=seed6.polytimos.net
Next, start ccminer (or whatever mining software) with the following .bat-file:
set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 ccminer -a poly -i 23 -o http://192.168.0.16:42518 -O rabinovitch:weneedreallygoodprezidenthereinRussia
The IP address in this example is 192.168.0.16, it's an IP-address of the PC with Poly's wallet in your case; 127.0.0.1 if you want to mine on the same PC where the wallet is started.
User credentials in this example should be replaced with your rpcuser and rpcpassword you will input in your polytimos.conf.
And here we go:
