Testing Instruction for Windows

Note:

  1. It is recommended to turn off antivirus softwares.
  2. Win 10, version 1903 and above

Run Files

  • cfxmine: mining program
  • conflux_win10_x64_v0.6.3: fullnode program (Differences from previous versions: the default.toml released with the mainnet will be renamed as oceanus.toml; the default.toml released with the testnet will be renamed as testnet.toml.)

Prepare to Run Conflux

  • Create a directory: conflux
  • Unzip the download package to the directory respectively

⚠ The directory structure is:

Configuration Instructions

Open the run/oceanus.toml file with a text editor and configure mining related parameters:

Run the GPU Mining Program

The Conflux GPU mining program cfxmine needs to run with the Conflux node program. Follow the steps below to start:

  • Open the directory of the run executable file in cmd and start the fullnode:

Then you can start mining.

  • Open the directory of the cfxmine executable file in cmd and start the Conflux GPU mining program:

  • In bash (or any POSIX compliant Shell), start the fullnode:

Then you can start mining.

  • Open the directory of the cfxmine executable file in bash (or any POSIX compliant Shell), and start the Conflux GPU miningprogram:

Note: The GPU command line is executed after the fullnode synchronization is completed

Tips:

If the Conflux node program and cfxmine are not on the same computer, you can specify the IP address and the port (the default is 32525) of the remote Conflux node program when starting cfxmine.

or

If you want to designate remote node, you need to change the configuration of the node into:

Note: The GPU command line is executed after the fullnode synchronization is completed.
