I think I have cgminer configured and I want to connect to a mining pool.
I have created a
.sh file with the following text:
export DISPLAY=:0 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 cd /home/oshirowanen/Downloads/cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built ./cgminer --scrypt -o http://<mining_pool>:<port> -u <username> -p <password> -I 9
I found this link for p2pool:
and have decided to use the following pool:
The format is as follows:
City/State/Province::Country::IP Address:Port::Fee::Coinage Mined::Pool Name::Operator (Nick)Name
My question is, according to the .sh file, I should also have a password, but no password is provided in my chosen p2pool, i.e:
Where do I get the password from?
Or are those p2pools at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66182.0 only for testing purposes after which you're supposed to configure your own p2pool?
