step by step.
1. download vertcoin one click miner and install it
2. download vertcoin core wallet, extract it to a folder, run it, and let it sync. (takes a long time)
3. port forward all ports as shown in the video using your router.
4. set up a static ip as shown in the video. if you have a wifi adapter next to your ethernet adapter make sure you right click on it and click disable. if you only have wifi then make sure you disable the ethernet adapter. its best to use ethernet (a cable) wifi is much slower.
5. set up the settings of the programs as shown in the video. make sure your settings are the same. (do not use the same wallet address as what was shown in the video!! otherwise you will be mining for me...dont do that, its a nice gesture though)
6. with your core wallet fully synced and vertcoin one click miner open at the same time click on "run local node" on the one click miner program. it will ask you to create a config file. click ok. the node will try to start now, but it will likely not work yet. close the node command that opened. will we open it again in a moment.
7. go to the vertcoin folder as shown in the video. in users - your name - app data - roaming - vertcoin. find the config file as shown in the video and copy it to the folder that you extracted your vertcoin wallet into.
8. now with your core wallet open and vertcoinminer open. you should be able to click run node and it will work. you will see a command prompt open up and lots of text and information scrolling through it.
9. when you click run node it will ask for your wallet address which is the wallet you will mine to. put that information in. the password field can be anything. i just make my password as X. it doesnt matter.
10. with your node running you will see it as a minable node now on the front of your program. you can check to see if its working by clicking on the node you just made. it will bring up a webpage, there will be no miners yet unless you already began mining by hitting the start button. you know the node is working if the webpage that is brought up when you click on it works. if its not, the webpage will be blank and give an error.
11. your node will take a while to show up on the public scanner. possibly a day or less. eventually people will show up on your node pickaxes in hand to mine!
12. last step, sit back, enjoy success...you did it. you're the best there ever was. how awesome is it to be you? the world may never know. for the rest of us..eat this crunchy groove! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fWxCIi5PIw

Hello Crypto fans, to all who like VTC. Thanks to MrSotko awesome guide and my friend _SLAVA_, today we had started a new Vertcoin Node. If you are in Nor Cal and would like to mine on low ping node with One-Click Miner, feel free to join: stratum+tcp://184.108.40.206:9181 and stratum+tcp://220.127.116.11:9171 (live now for 100 Mh/s and above)
20 years with a computer front of me I am not getting this to work. after 6 hours trying.
.../... Looks like I got a very rare problem. p2pool windows just shut down immediately when I click Run Local Node. when I run the bat on a cmd there is a message error about " ...error parsing address.... address not for this net..." So bad lucky for me. Stuck!
yeah not every router is the same. most are though. so you just type ipconfig and use your default gateway. your ipv4 address is your computer's address. thats not how you connect to your router. what GPU are you using? with vertcoin it really needs to be nvidia and a modern one at that. AMD are very bad at mining this coin. also watch for antiviruses, they flag mining programs and prevent them from mining or connecting a lot. same with firewalls. just add exceptions and such.
not sure in the regard unfortunately. i do know it takes a lot of time for people to initially see it. like 24 hours or more. if that doesnt work it may be some sort of firewall or port issue. you can always give out the node address. maybe post it to the vertcoin mining reddit or something if anyone is near you.
these are all ports that have been suggested for one reason or another by how to guides peppered across the internet. none of them individually worked until i did all steps shown in the video. are all the ports necessary? not entirely sure. but what i am sure of is that this process worked for me after essentially days of viewing invalid guides.
Error while checking Bitcoin connection:
Traceback (most recent call last):
Failure: twisted.internet.error.ConnectionRefusedError: Connection was refused by other side: 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it..
I can't figure out what my issue is. My index is all caught up and I copied all ports exactly
yep i got that tons of times til i did it exactly the way i did it in this video. creating a static ip and all the steps. im sorry it didnt work for you. hopefully you can recheck everything and maybe find a wrong number you inputted.
i ran it for a while then dropped it. the amount of bandwidth it used on my connection i deemed far too much. not many people joined. i never really made a video on it afterwards, i could have, and got people to join it. but thats just a bit shilly, considering anyone can join any other node and work just the same.
I just first wanted to say thanks so much for this. I do have a question/issue. I set everything up perfectly I hit the run local pool and my mining hashrate is still at zero. It says local dead on arrival. Expected time of share is ??? Like its not connecting at all although it shows i have 7 peers and 0 incoming. I'm not sure what is going on sadly and if you have a clue i'd love some input :)
I'm running 2 currently but AMD sapphire r9 200 as my dedicated gpu for my monitors and an Sapphire Rx580 OC as a discrete. Everything is up to date. i just replaced the harddrive due to a freak accident with a power supply. So I guess its an AMD issue but it should still at least mine. it's not even doing that. which is very odd to me.
what GPU are you using? also are you drivers up to date? very old drivers sometimes wont work at all during mining. AMD gpus are terrible at this type of algorithm, and CPU is incredibly slow. Nvidia GPU is a must for vertcoin.
Hands down: best explanitory vid ever! great work mr. sotko ( you should have a radio show on top of that). Thanks to jason helms as well. been mining on my own node for merely 20h and the roi is through the roof. only downer, i can't find my node adress. it aint on the scanner either, but i'll just give it another day. you got a new subcriber !
Thanks for the great video. I am about to install this on a extra desktop that is just collecting dust. If you mine on a different computer on the network that the node is set up on. Will it get the same benefits? Or do you have to mine on the the one which the node is set up on? Thanks.
Dude you are AWESOME! Yeah I watched Micheal Wang's video 100 times and couldn't get my node to work. Spent 13 mins with you and it WORKS! BRAVO!
Have a followup question, how do I now share my node with my other friends in my area.
@MrSotko: Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. There's so much misinformation out there but kudos to you for taking the pains to research this and lay it out in detail here. I'll definitely be donating something to your channel if I'm able to mine anything significant.
make sure you forward all ports properly? ensured that you have a static ip by changing it like i did in the video? you can open command prompt. type ipconfig. it should say .11 at the end like i showed you to do in the video. also the obvious stuff, allow it through your firewalls, antivirus, etc.
Another quick question MrSotko. Have you had anyone join your pool? I have had mine running now for approx 12 hrs and have yet to see any indication of someone joining and mining on the pool. I have checked to see if my ports are open via port checker websites and it looks like they are.
Aloha, Thank you for the Video it was very informative.... I am having trouble with my windows 10 AMD with the Onclick Minor it always crashes... i try to mine with cpu says error pops up i try to host a local node on my laptop and it still says loading.... also im using wifi..... I really want to Join the Vert Community but im having issues... can i mine using a cc minor or sgminer and if so how do i set it up. ? Thank you
After setting up my port forwarding on my router, my DNS server under ipconfig, it only shows 192.168.0.1 (router home). It does not create an additional DNS to use. Also when I created the pool, it VTC OCM did not create a config file. Not sure where I'm going wrong, here :(
If your ipconfig prompt is showing 192.168.0.1 then your router will be forwarding your DNS requests on to another DNS server, that should work fine.
To explain DNS, it's a protocol that changes a domain name (eg. google.com) into an IP address so you don't have to remember the IP address of every web server that you connect to.
You can override the router's settings with any DNS server IP. These days everyone seems to be using Google's DNS servers at 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 because they're easy to remember but you could also use OpenDNS 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 or the ones provided by your ISP.
Anyone who cannot find the AppData/Roaming folder, make sure to turn on "show hidden files or folders" under control panel > file/folder options > View > Then change "don't show" to "show hidden files/folders.
Thanks. When I tried to follow your guide I read in regards to my router that the port forwarding isnt needed for IPv6. Do you know anything about that? I am wondering if theres anything I need to do. My oneclick miner is running locally right now and I have the wallet synching at the same time. Its only been an hour so I cant yet tell if itll work.
Thanks guys. Its worked. roughly 1 VTC mined over the last day or two. Seems quite sporadic with the payouts. I guess luck is a factor. Would be nice to know the average time per VTC needed, the calculators online show dumb info for some reason, maybe my inputs are wrong but not sure what Im doing wrong. FYI I have 1 1080TI and 1 1070. 1080TI is runnning 247 and my 1070 is on my gming rig so over night and when im working. 1080TI has 62mh/sec and 1070 has 38mh/sec. Any info for me?
dont do anything with ipv6. you might just be mining in your pool but its not showing publicly. thats ok. people wont join in. but you can still mine on it faster due to low latency. not sure why its not going public unfortunately. i did all the steps exactly in the video and it finally worked.
OK. when I click on the Pool URL in my oneclick miner ("....localhost...") then it gives me a connection refused error. Is this a bad sign? Or am I good because when I click "Start" with run local node=true and my local pool selected it starts working with no errors?
Ok, so i followed all your steps, but when i click add pool in the one click miner, i get a screen where i have to put in my wallet adress and password, if i put my wallet and just password x , the local p2pool stays offline
Thank you for the help. I ran into all the same problems it seems you did and kept finding useless information from sources.
Just some 2 cents though. It's kind of hard to read all of the ports that need to be forwarded, it would help if you put them in the description. Also I don't believe it's necessary to manually add the IPV4 addresses and the DNS server info in windows if you are going to set up a static IP address in the router. I just did address reservation on the router and that took care of all of that stuff. Anyhow thanks for the help and as soon as I start making some serious vertcoins I'll send one your way.
change your quality settings you can read it crystal clear, like he says just pause. Now you picked a dummy port with 9050-9050. Does inbound outbound make a difference?
Also, sorry for all the questions, but after setting up my computer with a static IP nobody else can see my node besides me. Any ideas?
