Connect error: Connection refused

An error Connect error: "Connection refused" is usually connected with the following reasons:

  • No internet access;
  • DNS issues;
  • Incompatibe mining client;
  • IP banned by the pool;
  • Pool is unreachable (having temporary issues);
  • Hardware related, damaged cables, or similar.

If connecting to a VPN resolves the issue, then you can assume that the issues are on your local network.

You can check if the pool is not working for everyone or just for you with our pool status checker.
