I have been running Antminer S9 in my apartment. It is too noisy, to hot, and it ruins the ambiance of my home. So I did some research and found a data center that can host my miner.
At home I access Antminer through my private IP through my router. However, in the data center I will have to get a public IP. I will have a strong password for the Antminer but I am still worried for having my ASIC publicly exposed to the world (DoS attacks etc).
I talked to a person in the data center, setting up VPN will further erode my profit margins. It is already expensive.
My questions to the community are:
- Is it dangerous to set up a remote Antminer in a data center with a public IP?
- What is a typical network set up when I want to host my equipment remotely?
