2. Setting Up Bitmain Antminer S17+ Server
To set up the server:
The file IPReporter.zip is supported by Microsoft Windows only.
1.Download the following file: IPReporter.zip.
2. Extract the file.
The default DHCP network protocol distributes IP addresses automatically.
3. Right-click IPReporter.exe and run it as Administrator.
Select one of the following options:
Shelf, Step, Position – suitable for farm servers to mark the location of the servers.
4. Default – suitable for home servers.
5. Click Start.
6. On the controller board, click the IP Report button. Hold it down until it beeps (about 5 seconds).
The IP address will be displayed in a window on your computer screen.
7. In your web browser, enter the IP address provided.
8. Proceed to login using root for both the username and password.
9. In the Network section, you can assign a DHCP IP address (optional).
10. Click Save & Apply.
3. Configuring Bitmain Antminer S17+ Server
Setting Up the Pool
1. To configure the server:
2. Click General Settings.
Set the options according to the following table:
|Pool URL||Enter the URL of your desired pool The S17+ servers can be set up with three mining pools, with decreasing priority from the first pool (pool 1) to the third pool (pool 3).The pools with low priority will only be used if all higher priority pools are offline.|
|Worker||Your worker ID on the selected pool.|
|Password||The password for your selected worker|

4. Monitoring Bitmain Antminer S17+ server
To check the operating status of your server:
- Click the status marked below.
Note: The S17+ server is with automatic frequency. Firmware will stop running when the Temp (PCB) reaches to 80℃ or Temp(chips) reaches to 100℃，there will be an error message “Fatal Error: Temperature is too high!” shown in the bottom of kernel log page.
2. Monitor your server according to the descriptions in the following table:
|ASIC#||Number of chips detected in the chain.|
|Frequency||ASIC frequency setting.|
|GH/S(RT)||Hash rate of each hash board (GH/s).|
|Temp(PCB)||Temperature of each hash board (*C). (Applied only to server with fixed frequency).|
|Temp(Chip)||Temperature of the chips on each hash board (t).|
|ASIC status||One of the following statuses will appear: 0-indicates OKX-indicates errorindicates dead Monitor your server according to the descriptions in the following table:|
