N00b needs help with Zilliqa Network / Mining Setup

#1

N00b here. Hoping this can serve as a guide for all …

I would just really appreciate if anyone can advise if my rig is setup and running correctly?

i have:
Mining rig running Ubuntu 16.0.4
5 AMD RX580 GPUs
16 gb ram

I followed this instruct: Mining with docker remotely

I have a nighthawk router with UPnP enabled.
I have not setup any port forwarding yet. currently attempting to set all this up remotely via ssh to my server, i do not have access to my router settings remotely, so its possible i will need the port 33133 opened up, if you think this is my problem, stop me right here :slight_smile:

UPDATE:
In-fact i did need to forward the port 33133 and now the docker launch is successful.

Huge thanks to @snowsledge for the answer.

If you are remotely accessing your server which is hosting your Zilliqa node client, then you need either a public IP address on your server OR port forwarding as shown in the Network Setup section.

You are facing the Fetch offline lookup nodes failed error because you have yet setup your network settings correctly. Hence, you are not able to connect to the Zilliqa network.

THANK you …
Ok so today i was able to get to the location of the server and setup port forwarding for both 33133 and 4202.

the docker connected successfully.

NEXT question … for the miner config … which is correct, or does it matter:

pointing to the local IP?

./zilminer -P zil://MYWALLETADDYHERE@192.168.1.11:4202

or pointing to the public IP?

./zilminer -P zil://MYWALLETADDYHERE@108.XXXXXX:4202

Both successfully launch, but neither are producing work for my GPUs … all my cards are idle / 0 hash

Here is a recent output from the log tail -f zilliqa-00001-log.txt:
