3: Network Settings

Open OS_DISK:/config/network.txt file to manage network settings.

You can leave the file empty if you are using a wired network with DHCP server.
Structure and description of file contents:
{
"net_type": "W", // Network type: E - for Ethernet, W - for Wireless
"net_mode": "S", // Network mode: D - for DHCP, S - for Static IP
"ip": "0.0.0.0", // IP-address with CIDR support (for static IP)
"mask": "255.255.255.255", // netmask (optional)
"gw": "0.0.0.0", // gateway (for Static IP)
"dns": "0.0.0.0, 1.1.1.1, 2.2.2.2", // comma-separated list of DNS servers (optional)
"ssid": "wifinetwork", // WIFI [B]SSID (optional)
"psk": "12sd78SR##21!", // WIFI key (optional)
"driver": "wext" // WIFI driver (nl80211 or wext). Default wext (optional)
}

network.txt example for wireless network with DHCP server:
{"net_type":"W","net_mode":"D","ssid":"SSID","psk":"PSK_KEY"}

network.txt example for ethernet network without DHCP server:
{"net_type": "E","net_mode": "S","ip": "0.0.0.0","mask": "255.255.255.255", "gw": "0.0.0.0","dns": "0.0.0.0, 1.1.1.1"}
ASIC Rig Installation

1: System Requirements

  • List of supported devices:
    - Antminer S9, S9i, S9j, S9k, S9SE, L3+, D3, T9+, Z9/Z9-Mini, Z11, S17, T17.
    - Innosilicon A9 ZMaster.

    More devices will be added soon.
  • Recommended System Requirements:
    1: Connect your ASIC to network.
    2: Make sure you have SSH access to your ASIC*.

    *For Antminer S17/T17 you need to unlock SSH first.

2: Unlocking SSH

For Antminer s17 only. Skip this step if you have SSH access to your ASIC.

Make sure you have access to ASIC via local area network.

Run “ASIC SSH Unlocker.lnk”.

To get the full list of commands use:

ssh-unlock-win-x64.exe -h

Set network range to scan with:

-ip

Unlock SSH access for all devices found during scan with :

-unlock

Example:

ssh-unlock-win-x64.exe -ip 192.168.0.0-192.168.0.255 -unlock

Set network range to scan with:

-ip

Check SSH access to all devices found during scan:

-check

Example:

ssh-unlock-win-x64.exe -ip 192.168.0.0-192.168.0.255 -check

ASIC installation via SSH connection

Add new ASIC on the “Dashboard” or “Workers” menu.

Go to System Info tab of your device and copy Worker’s token.

Connect to your device via SSH
(Default SSH username/password for Antminer - root/admin).

Run Command:

curl -k https://image.raveos.com/installer/install.sh | sh -s “Worker’s token” “OS_ROOT_PASSWORD”

Go to System Info tab of your device and copy Worker’s token.

Manual ASIC setup (Antminer S9/T9+)

Add new ASIC on the “Dashboard” or “Workers” menu.

Go to System Info tab of your device and copy Worker’s token.

Download RaveOS firmware: Antminer S9Antminer T9+

Open your ASIC configuration page in web browser (default Login/password - root/root).

Go to System > Upgrade tab. Push [Browse] at “Flash new firmware image” section.

Choose RaveOS firmware file and click [Flash image...].

You need to go to Miner Configuration > General settings tab after the flashing.

If you will see this message: "WARNING! OLD VERSION CONFIG FILE DETECTED!" you need to click [Save] button to restore your settings from previous firmware.

Go to Monitoring tab. Paste Token from step 3 into the Token field.

Push [Install]. Wait for Status = connected..
