I have access to a system for mining behind a squid proxy. No external connectivity except for HTTP & HTTPS. The access on my mining system is also fairly restrictive, but I have managed to build and compile
*minerd for it.
CentOS 6.5 x86_64, dual quadcore xeon, 16GB ram
This is for a project a group of us are working on; we are mining a private blockchain, not part of any *coin group (ours is based on DOGEcoin, I believe, but private).
The server only allows stratum+tcp to serverIP:3333. my minerd can't reach it due to the HTTP/HTTPS only outbound restriction.
I have looked at the Stratum Miner Proxy, but I have difficulty getting python to download what it requires to config and make/setup the proxy, when I run the
Is Stratum Miner Proxy still my best bet, or should I look into setting up a shell/relay outside the network that accepts HTTP from my miner and sends/receives stratum+tcp to the server? any other suggestions or thoughts?
