Remote Access to a Windows 10 rig.

ShawnYShawnY Member Posts: 58
Hi guys!
I am running a single rig of 6x Rx480s on Windows10.

Will like some suggestions on remote accessing your rigs from a remote location.
What I have experienced is that after rebooting the rig and accessing it remotely with Windows Remote Desktop, I am unable to start my miner to start mining with 6cards. ( I am using Claymore Dual miner 5.3)

It always starts with only 1 card. I have to be physically at the rig, log into Windows and run the exact same Bat file in order to run properly with 6 cards.

Any nice suggestions to alternate Remote monitoring software?

    I prefer to use VNC, because for me TeamViewer isn't secure enough. You can also make VNC more secure, when you use it with the SSH. You can find a lot of information in the internet about that.

    I just have a bat file that runs on startup to set the proper variables and start mining. I also have the computer restart every three hours, and set the bios to restart on power failure.

    The only thing I need to do remotely is turn the power on and off, and I have a smart switch that I can control from my phone.

    @dddrgonzooo how did you managed to set up the task scheduler? I have been playing with the automatic startup today but somehow it does not work for me.

    Did you created a separate batchfile (that does some extra steps) or you just call the one that start up the miner with the settings you want?


    I am calling the batch that sets the settings but somehow it is not working:


    Am I missing something?

    Google Chrome Remote Desktop works well for me

    @banzsolt I run only when user is logged in, set the event to restart and under select program to run I put the path to my batch file that has all the setx variables and claymore startup.

    Then I have a second bat file with a reboot command, and I schedule another task to execute every three hours. This is probably overkill but works well for my setup.

    @dddrgonzooo and you made your system to auto log in? or how is the process starting up then?

    @dddrgonzooo make sure your Windows10 default account doesn't have a password, that way it will boot straight into windows without having to enter a password. I'm not really bothered about local security on my rigs, because there's no sensitive information on them.

    my experience is you can't run any miner or miner spawned from a process run in rdp (even tried a delayed BAT file and spawned a seperate timed process) as RDP uses generic display adapter which essentially disables multi card mining.

    VNC or Chrome RDP both work well.
    Still thinking about how I can have remoting when using signature disabled drivers in win10.
    Can;t think of an option though at the moment and think it's going to stay that way untill auto sig check disabled in win10 is a thing.

    When i get back from france I will have a play around. have 42 rx470's to get up and running.

    Nice suggestions, guys! Gonna try out TightVNC!

    That's exactly what was happening, gonna try out both TightVnC and Chrome Remote as we speak.

    I use windows remote desktop on windows 10. Set the user to not ask for password when local logins and by remote desktop it asks for the password
  • dddrgonzooodddrgonzooo Member Posts: 145 ✭✭
    @banzsolt Yes no password so it logs into the account on restart.
or to comment.
