I am trying to run Xmrig miner to run without connecting to an online mining pool. Is it possible to simulate a mining pool (authentication and wallet) using localhost in windows? My goal is not to mine any real coins but to make Xmrig miner to run without wallet and online miner pool. I set up localhost and tried to run it with test username and password. But two things happened:
- Huge pages are available but not enabled?
- It says
[localhost:80] JSON decode failed
