Quick Start Wownerod for Solo miners alliance network

Wownerod Quick Start

One liner for installing and joining the wownero solo miners alliance network, for fast/private/robust wownero block relay.

On a Ubuntu or Debian distro, run (takes about 5min to complete):

wget https://git.wownero.com/qvqc/wow-sman/raw/branch/master/wow-sman.sh -O - | sh

this installs

  • wownderod service with alliance network peers
  • i2pd/tor integration for transaction relay and RPC services
  • xmrig/xmrig-proxy in /usr/local/bin path ready to config

How would the configuration be with several miners simultaneously? does each point to its own proxy or can a single node be used as a proxy and the rest pointing to that device? Could you give an example of the configuration to introduce in the proxy after running these scripts?

  • run this script on multiple machines
  • pick one machine to run wownerod and xmrig proxy
  • on other machines run systemctl stop wownerod and systemctl disable wownerod
  • follow the guide by @jrswab , How To Mine Wownero With Xmrig Proxy

Bonus: add service files for xmrig and xmrig-proxy so they autostart on reboot


for the moment I prefer to continue using only xmrig and wownerod, until I fully understand how to configure the proxy. Thank you anyway.

is there i way i can join this solo miners alliance network through windows? i use a windows machine for wownerod

probably? dont have a windows machine to test on so cant give exact steps. you will need a tor/i2p hidden service pointed at the wownerod rpc and p2p ports. if you figure it out please share!

you could try to combine these guides:

what’s the benefit of doing this?

this automates some steps and might save on setup time if you want to connect to other wownero miners over privacy networks…

  • installs wownderod service with alliance network peers
  • installs i2pd/tor integration for P2P and RPC services
  • installs xmrig/xmrig-proxy in /usr/local/bin path ready to confi
  • friends be jelly
  • node is available regardless of home firewall
  • help the network with out revealing public ip
  • be cheap, no need to pay for VPS hosting

hello, I’m running a new node since a few days, how do I manage the proxy and the miner? Thanks.

follow this guide, create config files in the directory where you run xmrig

xmrig receives this message trying to use proxy running in the node with i2p, the configuration has been tested in a common node and works well.

Check your network routes–try ping <proxy host>.

Or are you trying to get xmrig to connect over I2P to the proxy?

Im checking again the proxy runing in the SMAN node, the test is inside the LAN in the same subnet 192.168.1.X(xmrig) - - - > 192.168.1.Y(SMAN+xmrig-proxy)

might be the firewall, you can open the port on the machine running xmrig-proxy with

sudo ufw allow 3333

or you could disable the firewall with

sudo ufw reset
sudo ufw disable

I think that the lines “enabled”, “daemon-poll-interval” & “daemon” inside config.json to mine with proxy must been erased and “rig-id” specified with some value “x”, I was using this lines in the script mining without proxy only with xmrig and wownerod, from that comes the issue.
