I have a node running monerod. The "problem" i've that node with password and i don't know how to connect xmrig with login.

I tried various combinations such -u -p, -O user:pass, -u user:wallet -p etc. Some combination just no connect other say invalid wallet.

Xmrig have option to connect monerod with login? i can connect without login but the question is with password.

You cannot use authentication (i.e. monerod -rpc-login arg) when mining directly to a daemon (e.g. xmrig --daemon*). Also note that the user field (xmrig --user,-u) should be your primary wallet address.
