Control your rigs from anywhere


Write disk image

In Windows you can use HDD Raw Copy Tool. Also you can find it in "downloads". Alternatively there are Win32 Disk Imager, Etcher, Rufus and others.

Linux and Mac users can use "dd" or any other tool to write RAW image to disk. Something like dd if=hive-xxx.img of=/dev/sdb bs=10M status=progress. But be careful finding out output disk "of", use fdisk -l to list your partitions.

After the image is flashed you will discover newly created drive in your system where you will be able to preconfigure rig with it's ID and password. Please find rig-config-example.txt on HIVE drive.

SSDs are much more reliable and advised to use in production environments. If you want your USB flash drive please run logs-off after installation.

Connect to the rig

Use ssh [email protected] from Linux or Mac. Windows users can use Putty ssh client. Default password is "1". Once you are in run sudo -s to become root user. Start or stop miners, agent, etc only from root user.

If you prefer graphic UI, VNC server is there for you. Use VNC Viewer or any other VNC client to connect to your IP address vnc://

There is a Shellinabox server running on the rig. You may open in browser and access shell from the web.

Default login is user password 1.

And of course you can connect monitor to the first GPU in 16x slot if there some serious problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I see "HIVE" in console and then blank screen

    It seems that you've plugged your monitor to the internal GPU on the motherboard. Please connect it to the first external GPU, which is usually 16x port.

  • I have AMD and NVIDIA GPUs can I use them at the same time on one rig?

    Yes, absolutely. The only thing you need to follow is to put NVIDIA in the first 16x slot as the main GPU. Otherwise the X server will crash and there will be no OC for NVIDIAs.

  • My cards are without display ports, mining edition.

    You still can try iGPU to connect monitor. Or just boot without it and connect through the network, but you'll have to know rig IP (printed at boot time also).
