I am trying to solo-mine. I am using geth and ethminer on windows.
I recently added ether-proxy so that I can see progress.
However, ether-proxy now thinks that I am part of a pool and its forcing me to set a difficulty. I am guessing it is asking what difficulty do I want to solve. Since shares do not matter to solo mining, does anyone know what difficulty I should set in Ether-Proxy so that my node tries to solve a full block? There is zero documentation. According to the author, the fields are self-described.
To make matters more confusing, Ether-proxy is also reporting that the network difficulty is Difficulty: 79,764,482,404,251
Since ether-proxy is forcing me to enter a difficulty, I put it in 500. Which its reporting as 50000000000.
2017/12/18 13:36:55 Valid share at height 2427590/2427590 from R01@192.168.1.248 at difficulty 50000000000
My question is, does anyone know what difficulty do I need to set so that my node tries to resolve the entire block and not just a share?
