I have a worker on slush's pool, I have my BFGminer running (Pool 0 is hiding block contents unsure if that's important) and my Antminer S7, but I can't seem to get it to see it as a device. It ask for a target which is a serial port to probe for mining devices but I'm unsure what it's asking.

The Antminer S7 runs standalone. It has a micro-controler that runs CGminer, and a web interface where you can point it to any pool you want. You just need to figure out the IP address of the miner, then type it in a web browser. The default password is root/root, if my memory serves me well.

In any case, you should read the manual.


You can download IPreporter from Bitmain's support site. Run IPreporter software, now go to the miner and on the back side of the miner next the LAN port there is a button push is for 1-2 seconds. Now you should have the IP address. Paste it in a web browser and put your pwd in. And you have access.
