Missing pool port

The pool address to which you connect for mining consists of two elements:

  • Domain, subdomain, or IP
  • Port

These two elements are connected with the colon, like this:

eu.sandbox.pool.ms:4445

Where eu.sandbox.pool.ms is domain and 4445 is port.

If you get an error "Missing pool port", this means that when you defined pool, you forgot to add the port to the address.

Your pool tag probably looks something like this:

minerstat - Missing pool port

When it should look like this:

minerstat - Missing pool port - Fixed

If you don't know which port is correct for your pool, visit the pool's website and search for button "How to connect?". Pools usually list available ports in their instruction manuals.
