There could be several reasons why you can’t access the backstage of your miner despite having the correct IP. This article outlines some possible causes and corresponding solutions.
- Incorrect IP Address This is a common issue especially when relocating your mining farm or using second-hand miners.
Solution: Reset the miner to factory settings and use the IP report to obtain a new IP. See guide here: [Link to “How to Reset Miner to Factory Settings”].
- Incompatible Browser or Excessive Browser Cache Your browser might be incompatible or might have stored excessive cache.
Solution: Try using different browsers such as Google Chrome or Firefox. Clear your browser cache. If the issue persists, try using a different PC or laptop.
- Incorrect Password This problem usually occurs when you have changed the default password.
Solution: Enter the correct password or reset the miner and use the default password, which is usually “root”.
- Conflicting MAC Address Two miners may have the same MAC address causing IP address conflict. This results in both miners alternately malfunctioning.
Solution: Try resetting the miner to factory settings or upgrade to the latest firmware version. The firmware version fix_mac.tar.gz can help resolve duplicate MAC issues for S9i models.
- Conflicting IP Address A miner using DHCP to obtain a dynamic IP address may conflict with another miner that has the same statically-configured IP address.
Solution: Use DHCP to obtain a new IP address.
- Network Anomalies
Solution: Try pinging the miner’s IP address. If it’s unreachable, check the following:
- Router configuration
- Enablement of the DHCP server
- Proper range of assignable IP addresses in the DHCP address pool
- Network port indicators of the computer, miner, and switch.
Try restarting the computer and network equipment, testing the ethernet cable, switch port, and the router or switch.
- Control Board Issues
Solution: a. Reset the control board. b. Use the SD card to recover the program. c. Replace with a known good one.
- Miner Has Been Hacked The web page 80 port of the miner may have been modified or the login password may have been changed if the miner has been attacked.
