I am trying to mine solo.

I have installed BitCoin Core on my Windows box, set up incoming connections

enter image description here

and wrote in config file <BitCoinStore>/bitcoin.conf


Then on Linux box I ran

bfgminer -o http://mywindowsaddress:8333 -u myusername -p mypassword --generate-to myincomingaddress

and got

[2020-11-13 12:23:23] bfgminer: --generate-to: Invalid address

Why? What is invalid?

Should I run bitcoind instead of thus GUI on Windows?

  • Did you replace "myincomingaddress" with your actual address? Nov 13 '20 at 9:44
  • Yes, I took this address from BitcoinCore in section "receive". But I noticed, that it looks different than in examples: all characters are lowercase in mine, while in examples uppercase and lowercase mixed.
