Using Awesome Miner and CGminer for Gekko USB sticks



Using Awesome Miner and CGminer for Gekko USB sticks


I am using Awesome Miner - https://www.awesomeminer.com/ - free version.

I am my PC windows 10 laptop where I installed Awesome Miner and I have a laptop where I connected my USB and 3 GekkoScience USB sticks.

I setup Awesome Miner to connect to my local IP of my Ubuntu laptop - you can use ifconfig -a in a terminal to get you IP in Linux. Also cgminer port is always 4028.

To allow Awesome Miner to see cgminer - you have to add --api-listen to your cgminer command.

So my cgminer command looks like this:
./cgminer -o ... -u ... -p x --api-listen

It is pretty awesome since sometimes you have zombie sticks that you have unplug and re-plug - so on Awesome miner you can restart cgminer remotely - pretty cool.

And I would definitely support those guys in the future when I have a few more Gekko sticks plug-in.
