Remote Monitoring

Step 1: Enable Claymore remote management

First, you need to make sure you are running Claymore. If you don't have it, you can download it here. Right-click on start.bat, and click on “Edit” to open it in a text editor, add "-mport -XXXX" to the end of the file. "XXXX" will be a 4 to 5 digit port number to use. I do NOT recommend using the default 3333 as this has been known to be a target for port sniffing. The negative -mport value to ensure its in read-only mode, if you want to enabled full remote management and use the “Restart” or “Execute “Reboot.bat” options in the App, please remove the minus sign in front of port number, e.g., (-mport XXXX). If you decided to enable full remote management, please specify -mpsw option to protect Claymore by a password, otherwise Claymore will be vulnerable to attack.

Step 2: Find the local IP address

Find the local IP address of your mining rig. If you are running Windows on your mining rig, press the Win + R keys on your keyboard to open “Run”. Then, type in cmd and press Enter. When the command prompt window appears, type in “ipconfig” and press “Enter”. You'll see information about your local network. You should see an IPv4 Address. It will typically look like 192.168.1.X, or 10.0.1.X, make a note of this IP address. Also make a note of the “Default Gateway”, this is your router’s IP address.

Step 3: Find the external IP address

Your ISP has assigned you an external public IP address. Go to google and type, "What is my ip address", make a note of the IP. The external IP address can change without notice, I suggest to use DDNS (Dynamic DNS), to learn more about DDNS (Dynamic DNS), you can go to here.

Step 4: Set up port forwarding

Go to the “Default Gateway” IP address via a web-browser to access your router admin panel. If you are unsure how to do this, the best way is to Google, "How can I access port forward settings on router XXXX" where XXXX is your router brand and model. Once you are in your router, find the port forward settings and add a new entry, specify a TCP type connection, point it to your mining rig’s IP address (the IPv4 address from “ipconfig”), set private port to the port number you have specified for -mport in “start.bat”, set public port to a 4 to 5 digit port number. We do NOT recommend using the default 3333 as this has been known to be a target for port sniffing. I also suggest to setup static IP address reservation, you can learn how to setup static IP reservation here.

Step 5: Add miner to Claymore Remote Monitor App

Tap on the + sign to add a new miner. Enter your external public IP address from step 3, enter the 4 to 5 digit port number you have specified for public port from step 4. If you have enabled full remote management, enter the password you have specified for -mpsw option from step 1.
