Sometimes ISP, router, or firewall will block some crpyto mining domains as a result of false positive when protecting user. If this happens, you won't be able to connect to the pool and mine on it. Because of that, we have prepared a list of DNS records for many different pools. It is called mining pools whitelist or mining pools' DNS records.
You can download the list of DNS records and use it as described below.
If you are using msOS mining OS you don’t have to do anything as this list is already a part of the system. For msOS users this list is automaticaly updated and always up to date.
If you are using any other mining OS or standalone Linux system you can download the file and apply it to the following path:
If you are on Windows operating system, then you can apply the file to one of the following places:
This whitelist can also be used as part of your local DNS record cache on the DNS level or host file so you can import it to Pi-hole or similar software.
Do note that by using this list outside msOS or without some special updating script, you will need to check if some new entry is added and update it accordingly. Only on msOS the list is automatically updated.
