Click on the Login/Register link to register a username to mine with.
No password is required to mine, so just use X for your password in your miner, since most miners need you to enter a password.
Don't leave the miner password blank and don't use your account login password.
The configuration information shown below is the same for both PPLNS and Solo mining.
e.g. if your miner has a web page, you would fill it in similar to this with your username instead of Kano:
Your miner worker name can be whatever you choose and will be automatically created when your miner connects to the pool.
It must be: your registered username, followed by a dot '.' or an underscore '_', followed by a worker name.
If you have network issues using port 3333, you can also try any of:
The stratum.kano.is nodes are in West-USA and randomly select LosAngeles or Phoenix
There are other servers located around the world that you may be closer to:
As with the main stratum server, each of these allows mining to port 3333, 80, 81, 443 and 8080
To check how close nodes are to you, you may need to use a tcping program, since some of the nodes you can't use a standard ping.
When you do a tcp ping, use port 8080 on all the nodes you are checking.
On windows, check here for psping that will do a tcp ping: Microsoft psping
e.g. psping -4 -n 10 stratum.kano.is:8080
Only use firmware provided by the miner manufacturer.
Don't point CPU or GPU miners at the pool.
Don't point rental miners at the PPLNS pool. It's ok to use rentals on Solo.
The pool is configured to start you mining at 8190 difficulty.
The pool adjusts the per instance difficulty to maintain a share rate of approximately 18 shares per minute.
However, there is a lower limit set on the difficulty of 442.
