Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

If you see this error on your Windows Node display, this means that your computer or rig is blocking monitoring and management of minerstat's Windows Node software. Please note that we don't recommend mining with personal computers as personal computers include sensitive data and it is right that computer rejects mining on such machines. If you have a dedicated Windows computer or rig with which you want to mine and you are getting this error, make sure that you check the following:

  1. Disable or whitelist minerstat folder on your Windows Defender and antivirus.
  2. Make sure that your firewall isn't blocking minerstat folder and Windows Node software.
  3. Make sure that your router doesn't block your minerstat folder and Windows Node software.

Please note that even if you ran mining clients before and whitelisted your folder with mining clients, you will still need to prevent blocking of minerstat folder. All mining clients that are used by minerstat's Windows Node software are located in minerstat folder and ran from there.

If you whitelisted or disabled ativirus, Windows Defender, and firewall and you are still getting the same error, make sure to re-install minerstat Windows Node application as it could be that some important file was already deleted and is preventing you to run minerstat Windows Node.

Make sure that your configuration is correct - you can always test it by clicking "Reset to default" to get the initial configuration to your worker's config. - A new hashrate proxy service by minerstat
