Some questions related to this DwarfPool (ETH) mining command:
ethminer -F http://eth-eu.dwarfpool.com/0xb...
Is it correct that...
ethminerdoes not download the blockchain, it only creates DAG files.
- When using pool/farm mining as shown, I don't need a
eth) background process that syncs the blockchain.
gethis only needed for administration tasks (create/list accounts, show balance etc.) and I can add the
--maxpeers 0arguments (or other flags?) to disable blockchain syncing.
Regarding firewall settings:
ethminerlogs mining actions
tcpdump -i eth0 -A -s 1500 -n host eth-eu.dwarfpool.comshows connections to Dwarfpool server
- and after some hours (first, I saw only an empty page)
https://dwarfpool.com/eth/address?wallet=b...shows charts and statistics
So, mining seems to work. But...
- Do I need to open the ethereum listen port 30303 for proper functioning (e.g. to get payouts)?
- If this is the case: Is it enough to allow connections only to the Dwarfpool server
