mining.set target error when trying to run nicehash

  • Getting an error when trying to run nicehash showing, mining.set target

  • Hi doug,

    You can edit config file with command:

    edit 1

    In the file you can read all the instructions provided by pimp and by the miner --help command below.

    You will see information here:

     #   -proto <n> Selects the kind of stratum protocol for the ethash pool:
     71 #      1: miner-proxy stratum spec (e.g. coinotron)
     72 #      2: eth-proxy (e.g. ethermine, nanopool) - this is the default
     73 #      3: qtminer (e.g. ethpool)
     74 #      4: EthereumStratum/1.0.0 (e.g. nicehash)
     75 #      5: EthereumStratum/2.0.0

    Appears you need to set special flag because nicehash uses different protocol (this is case with many miners for nicehash)

    add to FLAGS= the following for nicehash: -proto 4

    Then Control+X , Yes to save and enter, and then Yes to restart the miner

    Then go to miner screen again for success
