II, Installation and setup
1.Assemble your miner machine.Please make sure the network line cable and power lines of L3+/L3++ are connected correctly; please make sure that both the power lines of the hash board and the control board are connected correctly.
2. Searching IP: Power on your miner and the power indicator starts to flash. At this point, the miner’s IP mode is DHCP (automatically obtain IP).
On another computer in the same LAN (referred to as “Management PC”), download the IP reporter software. After unzipping, double-click the “IPReporter” client in the folder, and then click “Start” as shown below:
Press the “IP reporter” button on the front of the miner and release it after 1s. At this time, an IP will pop up on the “IPReporter” client; this IP is the your miner’s IP address.
3. Enter the miner management backstage. On the “management PC”, open the browser, enter the IP found above, and enter the account information in the dialog box that pops up. The username and password are both “root” and click “Sign in”.
4. Setting mining parameters : please set the mining pool URL and worker in “Miner Configuration/General Settings”.
URL：Fill in the mining pool address : stratum+tcp://stratum.f2pool.com:8888, stratum+tcp://stratum.f2pool.com:3335. When the “Pool1” connection fails, the miner automatically connects to “Pool2”.
Worker：Fill in the user name registered on F2Pool official website, and fill in a worker name after the user name to distinguish different miners. The user name and the worker name are separated by an English dot “.” or an underline “_”. The format is as follows: user_name.woker_name
