I am trying to get eloipool up and running in a solo mining configuration using this installation https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=158105.0 eolipool starts up error free but clients cannot connect. The port is up and no visual errors in any log. tcpdump does show the packets hitting the port.

I followed the directions and I get no errors. Port 8338 comes live and can be seen via netstat.

gentoo001 eloipool # cat config.py
# Please note that config files are Python source code!
# A common mistake is to put an option list (such as TemplateChecks,
# JSONRPCAddresses, etc) excluding the final comma.
# For example (this is WRONG):
#     JSONRPCAddresses = (
#         ('', 8337)  # <-- there must be a comma after EVERY item, even last
#     )
# Without the final comma, should the option list ever have only one item in
# it, Python would interpret the "main" parenthesis as a mere sub-expression
# instead of a list of values. If that occurs, you might get crazy errors, or
# things might just not work correctly. Be careful to not miss the commas.

### Settings related to poolserver logging

# By default, significant events will be printed to the interactive console
# You can customize your logging using either simple parameters, or Python's advanced logging framework
# Note that using Python's logging framework will override the default console logging!

# To simply log everything to the system log (syslog) as well:
# LogToSysLog = True

# To make a log file:
# LogFile = 'filename.log'

# For a rotating log file:
LogFile = {
        'filename': 'eolipool.log',
        'when': 'midnight',
        'backupCount': 7,
}

  • Maybe you're being blocked from using the port? Are you on windows? – John T Jan 19 '14 at 4:11
  • no windows, only Linux. I tried minerd for cpu and cgminer for ASIC. Both failed in the same manner. Firewall is off and I can bring port 8338 up and down via script. – dooode Jan 19 '14 at 21:46
