Have a miner that we don’t support? Contact us and we’ll add it right away!

1. Getting Started

To begin this process, you’ll need to have a Pickaxe running (see our Getting Started guide for help with that). You’ll know you’re ready when your Pickaxe is online — notice the green bubble:

2. Performing a Bulk Import

On the Pickaxe that will be querying your new miners, click ‘Find Miners’. You’ll then be prompted for some information related to what you’d like to add:

Starting a scan.

This process works by scanning your local network for any miners that match the criteria you provide.

In this example, I know that to get to one of my Antminer ASIC management pages, I open my browser and go to http://192.168.1.2 , and I login with root/root — that tells me that this miner is running on the 192.168.1 subnet.

For this tutorial, we’ll scan for Antminer ASICs, and we’ll only scan the subnet from 192.168.1.1–192.168.1.10 (if I wanted to scan the entire subnet, I’d scan from 192.168.1.1–192.168.1.255, but in this demo, I know that I only have 10 miners online).

Scanning a subnet.

Press ‘Start’ and wait for your miners to be found:

Make any adjustments, as needed, and then ‘Save’ your miners — this will add them all to your dashboard.

Saving results.

3. You’re Done!

Within 2 minutes, your miners will sync, appear online, and you’ll start getting notifications if anything goes wrong:

Now you can play around and see what Foreman has to offer. Customize your dashboard, view your real-time earnings, configure alerting, and remotely change your ASIC pools.
