Stratum_subscribe timed out #1042
I am trying to mine using NiceHashMiner. CPU mining works without a problem, however I haven't been able to GPU mine. When I start the miner it tries to connect to the server and then gives stratum_subscribe timed out error followed by a remark that it will try again after 30 seconds. Then it gives the same error again and closes the command window and opens it again, with the same results.
I assume I have a connection problem with the server. I have tried to ping the EU server and it works as expected (and I get the same results if I try with other servers). I don't think I am banned because I haven't mined before (unless there is a geographic ban or something similar). I have Avast and Malwarebytes, which normally tried to block the software but I have put Nicehash in the exceptions so they are not messing with it now. I suspected it might be a problem with Windows firewall, but the same thing happens if I turn off the firewall (my modem has also a firewall but the same thing still happens if I turn it off).
I don't see any other possibilities. Do you have any idea what is happening?
(By the way, I am using a relatively older GPU (Nvidia GTX 680) which has 2 GB of ram. Could this be a problem?)
I too am in this same boat...except 1)brand new to mining and 2) i'm running an NVidia GTX970 using a driver version 376.53 (i've also tried the most current driver, too). i'm on Windows 10 (64bit), Firewall & Microsofts real-time security have been both off and on...with Malware-bytes turned off (as well as the folder for NHM added to the exclusion list). i've pinged all of the servers successfully with the USA - San Jose having the best average at 71ms. I'm not sure what else to try either.
appreciate your time and response.
WOW! I been trying to figure this thing out for days !! Thank you theshortcircuit !!!!!
Same problem with my GTX 1070. No firewall on, no antivirus.
Edit: Finally figured out my issue! I have an Asus router and needed to turn off the "Vulnerability Protection" option under "AI Protection" in the router settings
