whatsminer brand is one of the best mining brands in the world. In general, miners with this brand have less damage and longer lifespan than other brands. Due to the increase in the difficulty of the network last year and the decrease in the price of Bitcoin, high-end devices of this brand have been noticed, one of which is M32. The M32 series has different models of 62, 64, 66, 68, and 70. The instructions in this article include all models. You just need to know the final resolution of your device in the pool and the resolution written on the device as the maximum resolution of the device. is, they must match.
M32 miner and how to connect it to the ViaBTC pool
After connecting electricity and internet to the miner, we need to find the IP of the device. This can be done in two ways. One way is to use software that finds IPs inside your LAN or local network. In this method, your phone will be connected to the modem where your miner is connected to the same modem, and it will show you the IP of the miner. Usually, these softwares give you general details of the device whose IP they have found, which shows which device is a miner.
The second way is the proposal of whatsminer company, and it is especially useful when the number of miners is large. In this method, you need to install whatsminerTool. After pressing the IPMonitor key, click on the start option. In large farms, this software allows you to enter the number of the room, row and rack where the miner is located so that you don’t make mistakes later. Then press the IPFound button. Note that this button must be pressed after the LAN port LED is flashing green. After 3 seconds, the IP of the device will be displayed in the software.
Now enter the miner’s IP in the browser. Username and password are admin. Enter the miner user panel and enter the CGminerConfiguration section from the configuration section. In this section, you must enter the settings related to the pool.
After registering in the ViaBTC pool and activating the two-step Google code, you create a username in this pool. The important thing is that you can create multiple accounts with one registration in this pool, this is especially useful for those who have a large number of miners and need to separately manage the functionality and profitability of these miners. Your miner will connect to the pool through this username. The pool of 3 addresses suggests that you should enter these addresses in the 3 fields pool1, pool2, and pool3. You can leave a dot after entering the username and enter the name you want your miner to be known by in the pool without spaces. You must enter this statement in the poolWorker1, poolWorker2, and poolWorker3 fields.
After saving these settings, CGMiner must be restarted for these changes to be applied to your miner. CGMiner is actually a program that is responsible for starting your miner.
In some other brands, after making changes in the pool and worker settings, the changes are applied immediately, but in whatsminer devices, this must be done manually. For this, select CGMinerStatus from the status section.
Then click RestartCGMiner.
Of course, there is another way to apply the new settings, and that is to click the Reboot option from the System section to start the control board completely from the beginning.
By default, your device’s settings are set to dynamic IP. This default will help your miner to easily get an IP to any modem with any settings and you can easily enter the device management panel for the first time. After each time the device is turned off or the control board is restarted, the modem may give your miner a new IP and you will have to go through the previous steps again to enter the device panel.
The simple solution is to set a static IP. In this method, you set an IP for the device and the device is always available with the same IP unless you reset the settings again. For this, you select the Interface option from the configuration section. Then click the Edit option. Set the protocol option to staticIP and click the switchProtocol button. In this section, you fill in the relevant options, keep in mind that filling each field completely depends on your modem settings, but in many cases, the numbers in the image will help you.
If these settings are entered incorrectly, you may lose access to the miner panel, but don’t worry, you should reset the miner to return to the initial settings. For this, it is enough to press the Miner’s Reset button with a thin needle for 5 seconds.
If you have gone through these steps, when you enter MinerStatus, the details of the operation and the general status of the device can be observed.
This panel corresponds to an M32 with a power of 68 terahertz. In the first row, we see the average Terah of this device which shows 68720 Gigahash, which is 68.7 Terah. The amount of rejection, which occurs mainly due to problems in the network, should be less than 1 percent compared to the number of Accepted. The input and output fan speed are the next numbers, which are completely normal up to 6500 revolutions, and depending on the temperature changes, the fan speed is also changed according to the board control command. The voltage, the power consumption of the device at the same moment and the power mode of the device are the next important things that become available. Pay attention that in this picture, the voltage is not 1230 volts, it means single phase 230 volts. Power mode, if you pay attention, on the page where we changed the settings related to the pool, the side tab was related to power, where you can reduce the consumption and wear of the device by reducing the frequency, which of course is sometimes necessary in the hot months of the year. to be
In the next table, you can see the specifications of each hash board separately, and in the last row, you can see all of them together. The frequency of the hash boards should be close to each other and you can see the average amount of hash in the intervals of 5 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, and 15 minutes.
In the third table, we can see the general status of each hashboard, the number of active chips, and most importantly, the temperature of each hashboard. Up to 85 degrees is quite normal for this series. If the temperature of the hash boards increases, the speed of the fans will also increase to reduce the temperature. If the speed of the fans is above 6100 and the temperature is higher than 85 degrees, the range control automatically reduces the frequency. The suggestion of the manufacturer of this series is that the temperature of the air entering the miner should be lower than 40 degrees Celsius.
